It just folds up and clicks into place without need for a bracket. The hinge has a little spring loaded pushbutton that clicks into place either fully up or fully down.

Seems to me the solution depends upon why you want to cover the windows. I didn't go with curtains because I feel they make the cabin seem smaller and cluttered.

But I definitely definitely want to be able to cover the windows. I've been on my 26x for two months now in a liveaboard slip with other liveaboards around me. Obviously, you have to cover the windows, especially at night.

This product was the perfect solution. ... index.html

The shades adhere directly to the windows with suction cups with an unbroken success rate, whether it's a hundred degrees and 100% humidity or 30 degrees and snowing (as it has been a surprising amount here in Seattle recently). I've had them for three years. Once I learn how to put them on properly, they have never once fallen off the windows.

Perhaps best of all, for storage, the shades fold up and store in tiny nylon sleeves. Collectively, when folded up for storage, all six sleeves combined are about 8 inches in diameter and 2 inches thick, smaller than a novel, kind of like a little pack of tortillas or pitas.

They are completely opaque and you can neither see into nor out of the windows when they are in place. When you go sailing or want to let in sunlight, it requires about 2 minutes total to take them all down and put them in their little bags.

If I lost these I would purchase them again immediately.
Do you happen to know what sizes worked best for all the :macx: windows? These look perfect for my current hunt for blinds

The shades have taken some rough handling and are still doing fine.

3 x 1535

2 x 1510

1 x 1530

I didn't order a cover for the window in the head because that window has two vents installed (Nature's Head, etc.)

One can not see through the two holes in each shade where the stoppers attach to the windows because the stoppers are opaque.
