Can I attach the extender at home on the enclosure panels before I attach it to the bars and put it on the boat./

I have trouble attaching my enclosure to the snaps due to shrinkage.

On your videos all the zippers are installed with the enclosure on the boat up and are done on the boat.

I keep my canvas pieces for my enclosures in the house all winter.

Hi Phyllis,
Yes you can install the EZ-Xtend zipper while the panels are at home. You will just be zipping to the side that you have at home and cutting it off, then when you head back to the boat, you just plan to zip them in same as before. Shouldn’t be a problem at all. Only down side I can thing of, is once they are cut down to length by you, they are not returnable. That shouldn’t be an issue if your sure the 1” additional reach will be helpful for you.
Thanks for the question.
