Bimini Top

Postby yardley99 » February 13th, 2018, 4:41 pm

Hi all

I'm having some canvas and eisinglass work done this off season and im having trouble finding an item. I have spacers and pads along the bimini frame where the canvas and glass touch. I have found the replacement clips, but cant find anything on the padding that covers the bimini tubes. it has become frustrating so any help would be great.

Can you have the canvas people make frame covers for you? I've seen them made with Velcro so they can be removed easily (if we're both talking about the same thing)

I simply use the foam plumbing pipe covers bought a Home Depot. They are thick and keep the vinyl far away from the tubes.
Thanks

I like your idea. you have done this yourself and do not have a problem with the sun and heat?
