    Closing Winter Dream Doors

    Ok, this may seem like a dumb question but I have to ask. The WD has snaps on the doors to close them. When I close a snap on my trousers, I am using my fingers on opposite sides of the snap to seat the stud into the socket. When I close a snap on a shirt or a jacket, I am usually pinching the snap closed through the fabric on the back of the socket or pressing the stud into the socket against my torso. Is it awkward to close the WD snaps because of the lack of tension on both panels or a solid surface on the back of the socket? Do you have to stick a finger between the door panels from the inside to have something to press against to seat the stud into the socket? Any pics?

    Hey Brian, Good questions, the snaps are oriented to provide the strongest closure. Any other orientation would place the snaps in a position to be pulled open due to tension on the tarp or the wind. Velcro would have the same issue and is typically installed oriented in the same way our snaps are, just for the record we do not offer or use velcro as it tends to have a much weaker hold. I wouldn't say they are awkward or difficult to close, just work up from the bottom snapping as you go. Hammock suspension will typically prevent you from snapping top series of snaps allowing you the minor room needed for a finger to extend outside, thumb inside, while snapping the snaps.

    Happy Hangin'
