What are EZ-Xtend Drip Shields?
Boat enclosures are great for keeping you dry and warm, but sometimes the fit leaves a little to be desired; especially in the top corners where the bimini boat top and enclosure panels meet.
The fit of your boat enclosure may leave gaps, allowing water to infiltrate
This is the standard place where air and water can get through. The gaps that may exist between your boat enclosure and the bimini top can be even more exaggerated after using EZ-Xtend boat zippers.
With this in mind, we offer our EZ-Xtend Drip Shields. Drip shields are stick-on clear vinyl shields that keep out the elements along the upper corners of your Bimini top, helping to close any gaps that exist.
The adhesive tape on our Drip Shields is aggressive enough to stick to Sunbrella and other marine fabrics.
We offer three types of EZ-Xtend Drip Shields.
Corner Drip Shields. These stick-on drip shields are designed to wrap around the corner of the bimini boat top, closing the corner gap that may exist.
Straight Drip Shields. These stick-on guards, similar to the corner drip shields, are designed for any gaps that may exist between two enclosure panels along the sides or front of your boat enclosure.
Track Drip Shields. are companions to EZ-Xtend Boat Track. If you have installed EZ-Xtend Boat Track on your enclosure and have any gaps where rain can drip through, we recommend using our track drip shields to keep out the rain and cold.

What sizes do they come in?
All three drip shields can be trimmed to whatever shape or size works best for your boat.
How do I install EZ-Xtend Drip Shields?
Corner Drip Shields and Straight Drip Shields are simple to use. Just ensure that your fabric is clean. Peel and stick the shields to the inside edge of your bimini boat top.
Track Drip Shields are just as simple. Slide them in, between enclosure pieces, and cut to whatever size is appropriate.

"I wanted to thank you for the fantastic results I have with the EZ-Xtend zipper solution you provided for my Sea Ray.
The isinglass had shrunk to the point that installing it was an all-morning job, with some snaps totally unusable due to the material shrinkage. I really was preparing to purchase a complete new canvas set, but hated to spend the money-especially since the canvas is still in excellent shape.
The EZ-Xtend zippers have made the canvas/isinglass installation and removal about a 10 minute job! (and looks great too!) Thanks again for the quick solution and the reasonable cost, I really do appreciate it." Steve Donovan Georgia
The extend zippers have been a resounding success. Zippers were needed for the starboard stern section of my bimini top, and for both side curtains of my camper canvas. It is a clever design you came up with to increase the width of connectivity between my bimini top and camper canvas sections. I do not know what I would have done otherwise as the camper canvas sections have shown shrinkage over time. M. Marien Missouri
I got a chance to install these yesterday and just thought I'd get back to you to let you know that they worked perfectly for me. I couldn't be happier with that simple to install solution to my problem now allowing me to properly and fully enclose my cockpit again. Such a great idea. J. Reed British Columbia
The Ez-xtend zippers were very easy to install---especially with a little lubricant ( which I always apply periodically to zippers) E.Chesnavich New Jersey
"True skill and craftsmanship are rare traits in today's society. When they're held by a person that truly cares about her customers, brings honesty, creativity and passion to her work, you have just described Tammy Hampton. Better known as "The Cover Girl," Tammy has been both a friend, mentor and business partner for nearly twenty years.
I found Tammy by her name tag.... sewn to a sailboat cover, in a nearby marina. The boat cover was fitted with such precision, it clearly stood out from the others. In the years since, Tammy has 'dressed out' at least twenty boats for me. She has yet to meet a challenge for which she could not find a creative and effective solution.
Tammy has become a valuable resource to my BoatButler business, and she has actually created sort of a "cult" following among my customers. Once they see the quality of her work, the choice is an easy one.
I am still grateful for that little tag on that sailboat cover I found nearly twenty years ago."

I love your website and wish we lived closer, so that I
could stop by your shop - sounds like a wonderful place!
Thanks so much for the education I received from your site! I have been in to two local shops for estimates on a new canvas enclosure for my little boat. Both commented that they were happy to have a customer who knew what he wanted and was familiar with the material and options available. I learned it all from you!!
With your zippers in place we could button up all of the canvas and make a very nice weather tight space which made our boating season very enjoyable. Phil
We finally got the chance to install of the ez-xtend zippers on our enclosure. (in between numerous Florida rain showers). and it turned out great! Everything finally fits together and it keeps the rain and the bugs out. Yay! I will be sharing your zipper solution with other boating friends and will be sure to mention the excellent customer service too. Toni
Looking forward to getting these items as it will save me a $3000 boat top replacement. Great website and sure glad someone thought to make these items up. Bob Lake City, MN
Received the boot, it looks and fits great! Thanks for the fine craftsmanship, communications and speedy service. Brian
I have received your product in a very timely manner and they worked great. I have already shown your zippers to my brother in law and he placed his order yesterday. I am the past commodore of a Boat Club up here in the great lakes region and have many boating friends. I am sure that once I show them how great your product works you will be getting more orders.
In 45 years of boating my new cover is the best that I have ever seen anywhere" Thank you so much and it was worth the effort!

I never know about the EZ-Xtend Boat Zippers and plan on giving them a try. Apparently, others have had great success with this product. I'll let you know how I do with it. Thx again. You've got a great website.
