Playset Roof Tarp Features
Note that this item is custom made to your specifications and is non-returnable. Especially because of this, please carefully read through the following instructions for ordering your custom playset roof tarp. This will ensure that you get exactly what you expect and require.
Selecting Your Options
Calculating Square Feet
To calculate square feet, multiply the Width (inches) by the Length (inches) of your tarp and divide by 144. Example: 44" x 80" = 3520 square inches ÷ 144 = 24.44 square feet (always round up) = 25.
Grommets vs. Snap Hardware
In ordering your tarp, you have the option of including Grommets or Snap hardware along the appropriate edges. With grommets, you simply fasten the tarp down on the playset by using a screw with a washer through the grommet hole. While grommets are a bit more convenient to install, many customers choose snaps over grommets because it is easier to remove the tarp for winter months. With snaps, you will receive a screw with a male snap head that screws into your playset. The female snap is already fastened to the tarp and snaps onto the male screw head like a button.
Long Edge vs. Short Edge
Deciding which edge you want the hardware on your tarp can be confusing. Playset tarps are typically rectangular in size with one edge being longer than the other. In most cases, the hardware runs along the shorter edge of the tarp, as this is the edge that gets fastened down to the structure. Illustrated on the right is a demonstration of what hardware along the short edges would look like.
