Popup Gizmos

Anyone modify their Pop Up Gizmos? I have the high wind covers, but they come lose in the wind even with many extra clips on the sides. So I was thinking about adding grommets with bungee cords (of some sort) to hold it on like the super high wind covers. I'd prefer not spend $180 for new super high wind covers since I already have these.

I have the super high wind pugs and I don't see why you couldn't modify yours to be something similar.

But, its more than just grommets as you can see in the pic below. The cords transverse the entire width of the cover and so spreads out the stress...



You could also call Bob at PopupGizmos (972-849-9240) and he might have some ideas for the modification. He is very helpful.

I've decided to purchase the super high wind covers (2 of them) and give my in-laws 2 of my high wind covers. The third bunk cover never comes lose, just the front and back.

Good choice! Plus, you score points with the in-laws.

Yeah, and I told them I would get them some for Christmas...they don't camp as much as we do, so the high wind covers will be just fine.

I just ordered Super High Wind Gizmos for my ROO 19. I haven't put them on yet and was wondering if anyone had pictures of how and where they attached the bungie cords on there bunk ends. Were camping this weekend.

Clamp the top on before you open the bunk. If you wait until you drop the bunk to clip them on, you will need 7 foot arms.

Just clamp them up once the bed it set up. Hubs is 6' and uses a small step ladder.

I've only put them on after the bunks were down and also have a small stepladder to help. It can be a bit of a reach if one of the bunks is higher off the ground than normal such as with an uneven site. I'll try attaching with the bunks up the next time that happens.
