Proper car shelter installation:

 

1- Inform you from the city to the regulation on the legal date of installation and disassembly as well respect the distance á from the sidewalk and street.

2-We strongly recommends permanent anchors (avoid concrete blocks or other weight)

3- Goodly tender the canvas to avoid pockets

Proper maintenance:

1-Declare the carport to your home insurance.

2-Plow your every storm shelter with a roof scoop sold at Shelter Crystal (ask a relative or neighbour to do in case you are away)

3-Verify periodically tension canvases, anchors and nuts during the season.

4-In case of strong winds, close both doors of the shelter to avoid the wind creating a parachute effect. If you only have a door, you must open the passage to allow the wind.

5-Do not allow the engine inside the shelter to avoid the risk of poisoning the oxide.
