Easy~Up FAQs, Facts, and other important information:
Easy Trailering.......The blind folds into a neat package which protects the material from wind damage and makes trailering easy. When collapsed, it also takes up very little room in the boat and allows for great visibility when driving the boat to the hunting spot.
Fits any Boat....... The Small and Medium blinds fit a range of boat widths from a minimum of 22" to a maximum of 80" without additional hardware or extra cost. The Large fits up to 96" wide boats. The design also fits boats with narrow or pointed bows. This enables the blind to work as well on narrow boats as it does on larger big-water boats. The kit comes complete with fasteners and hardware for attaching the blind to any aluminum, fiberglass, or wood boat.
Mud-Motor type Engine (Go-Devil, Mud Buddy, Beavertail, etc.)....... The optional mud-motor adapter allows the Easy~Up to work perfectly with these motors.
No Loose Parts....... There are absolutely no loose parts to be lost in the water or misplaced in the boat. The blind sets up by means of the unique snap-button connectors which makes it easy for a hunter to raise it to the hunting position, even in the dark or while wearing heavy gloves.
Frame Construction....... The frame is constructed of lightweight galvanized and powdercoated steel tubing. All the hardware is nylon and stainless steel.
Attachment to the Boat....... The blind mounts to the boat on top of the side rails at 4 points. The camo attaches to the boat via quick release cords attached to small eye straps enabling the whole blind to be removed and reinstalled easily in less than 10 minutes.
Do I have to drill any holes in my boat?....... You will need to mount the 4 pivot mounts on top of the gunnels. This is done by drilling 2 holes for each and mounting them down with stainless screws. These mounts stay in place and the blind is easily removed from them for storage. You will also need to mount 12 small eye straps around the perimeter of the boat. These are mounted with small pop-rivets. None of the drilling is done in a spot that will damage the boat or create leaks.
Wind Screen....... The fabric used in our blinds is windproof and no additional windscreen is needed.
Top...... We now offer a Top Kit that will completely hide the interior of the boat while not interfering with your ability to shoot quickly without having to move the top out of the way.
Camo....... Premium, snag-free 3-D leafy material in Mossy Oak Shadowgrass Blades camo pattern. This material is 3-D leaf-cut polyester camo sewn to strong printed ripstop polyester backing. There are two layers: a leafy layer sewn onto a solid layer. Both layers are printed in the same camo pattern.

Installation Instructions....... The kit comes with detailed step-by-step instructions including diagrams, parts list, and an installation DVD.
Installation time....... Since you will be custom fitting the Easy-Up to your boat, the initial installation should take about 3 or 4 hours. The blind can then be easily removed at the end of the season or reinstalled in about 10 minutes.
After Season Storage..... The Easy-Up is easily stored after the season by simply hanging both halves on the garage or storage shed wall and out of direct sunlight (sunlight can fade the camo print over time)
Tools....... Only basic hand tools are needed in the installation process and these include things like an electric drill, hacksaw, screwdriver and wire cutters.
Blind Height....... The blind height is determined and set by the installer to meet hunter preferences and boat configuration and generally ranges from 24" to 34" above the side of the boat, but can be installed to as high as 44".
Patent....... The Easy~Up blind is patented: US patent # 5887539
Lightweight....... Once installed, the blind weighs only around 30 pounds.
Speed of Set Up....... The Easy~Up can be raised by one hunter in just 10 seconds and collapses even quicker. It lays completely flat on the boat while traveling across the lake or on the trailer.
Shipping....... The blind kit ships in a single 30 to 38 pound box 8" x12" x54". You pay only for the cost of UPS ground shipping...normally around $39-$49...we make no profit on shipping and handling!
Dogs....... The Easy~Up blind opens in the center on either side to easily allow a dog to enter or exit for a retrieve. This is also the location where your dog will be able to look out of the blind while maintaining good camo coverage.

All of the Frame parts and hardware on the Easy-Up blind carry a LIFETIME WARRANTY for failure due to defect in material or workmanship. Any frame or hardware part that breaks will be replaced at no charge to the original owner of the blind.
