Another happy Promptscreen user. I always smile when I see the other guys drag out their ladders to install their snap-on screens. With Prompt, I install it in 3 minutes with no ladder. I have had to replace the suction cups every 3 or 4 years. No big deal.

We made our own. And the way thaat we did it, we can use them on the "Outside of the Windows" or on the "Inside of our Windows"

Bought a 10X20 ft Roll of "Sun-Sreen" at Homme Depot, if I remeber right for less than $40 dollars with tax.

So we can use them either way, depending on the weather.

Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill


I agree with ryanallie, the ability to install them on the inside is very functional. I have had outside covers, and hate having to roll up a wet cover (after or during a rainstorm),and store it somewhere to keep from getting everything else soaked. I purchased these 2 yrs. ago http://www.rvsunshades4less.com/home.htmland have been very pleased with them. I can install or remove them during a rainstorm and never get a drop of water on me. They do not block the heat as well as the outside covers but they sure are easy to use.



So, you guys that make your own, how do you attach them on the outside? I know someone said magnets, what else is used?

If you choose to make your own, I suggest suction cups to hold when installing on the inside. Since I do not use mine on the outside, I cannot give advise for them. You can purchase suction cups from rvsunshades4less (see clicky on my post), or I feel sure Lowes, HomeDepot, Harbor Freight, etc. have them.

Hi All.

For using the Solar Screens that we made we can mount them a couple of different ways.

We can, use the small "Scution Cups" made for the "Inside of Windshield" on the "Outside as well.

We also use these, "LINK" as we have a quite a few of them we got for free, so why not use them. I also use a couple of plastic "Tarp Clips" to fasten them to the Mini Suction Cups. Takes me less than 5 minutes, and that is with getting out the Step Stool.

I also only need a short "Step Stool" to mount them on Outside, the lower ones I can easily reach just standing up. ( I use it to clean the Windshield with ) or I can easily reach the area out of both the Driver's Window or the Passengers Window. It just depends on how lazy I feel.

Works out great for our needs. Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill
