PROBLEM:
We want to shade our playground, but remove the cover when wind or snow require it.

SOLUTION:
Hendee Enterprises' Easy Slide is the perfect solution. This patented system makes it simple for one person to quickly remove and re-install the cover on your SunVeil shade structure. Typically, to remove and re-install the cover on most shade systems requires two people. With Easy Slide, you simply take off the protective caps, loosen the nut and remove the cover.
