EZ-Xtend Boat Track will solve the universal nuisance of shrinking clear vinyl boat enclosures.

As vinyl ages, or gets cold, it shrinks. This can make vinyl boat covers a real pain to operate.

EZ-Xtend Boat Track: before installation, this enclosure is too tight

You might even see this happen during a single day. If you've taken down or rolled up your panels on a warm day, only to find as it gets colder in the evening that you are unable to snap the panels back, then you'll know how frustrating vinyl shrinkage can be.

EZ-Xtend to the rescue!

Designed especially for track-to-track enclosures, houseboat enclosures or any other clear vinyl panels that are tracked to a permanent surface, the EZ-Xtend boat track provides a spacer.

It sits between your existing permanent track and the welt that is sewn to your enclosure panels, adding 7/8" to your enclosure. Now your panels can drop down further and easily snap in.

It's also very affordable at just 75c per inch.

EZ-Xtend Boat Track: after installation, the boat enclosure sits 7/8 of an inch lower, solving the problem

EZ-Xtend track is a custom-sewn product and is not cut to fit like EZ-Xtend boat Zippers. That means that when you order your EZ-Xtend boat track, you must indicate the exact length you will require. If you do cut an EZ-Xtend boat track the thread will unravel.

How to measure for EZ-Xtend Boat Track

You determine you need 189" of continuous EZ-Xtend boat track for your front enclosure.
For the port and starboard sections you need 78" for each side. They had to be measured separately, because boat track doesn't take sharp corners or tight radius's, it is flexible enough to take sweeping curves.

With these track lengths in mind you need.

Front enclosure 189" = Three 60" pieces plus one 9" piece.
Port enclosure 78" = one 60", plus one 18" piece.
Starboard 78" = one 60", plus one 18" piece.
Total = five 60", one 9", two 18" pieces.
345" @ .75 = 258.75

Slide your new EZ-Xtend boat track in piece after piece, to give you a gap free appearance and then slide your enclosure back in.

You should now be able to snap your enclosure back easily.
