Most people will devise their own system that works best for their equipment, but here are some suggestions.
For more detailed instructions for installation and high wind applications please click on the tab below. Please also watch the video for more information.
These instructions are included with each roll:
Recommended tools needed for installation:
Rechargeable drills that have a slip clutch are important to speed up installation and not strip out the screws. Experiment with your drills to find the lowest setting that works, which is often the lowest setting. In all of our testing, we have never had a screw pull out of a hutch, unless its threads were stripped by not setting the slip clutch on a drill.
For windy locations, one roll of Nashua FLEXFIX or 3M 3350 tape, or equivalent, for every 50 Cool-Calf Covers ordered. The tape is readily available in the HVAC section of hardware stores or HVAC distributors, for $13/roll or less. This tape is all-weather and has good UV resistance, much better than "packing" tape. A good dispenser for the tape will greatly speed things up.
