Cuts from the PVC pipes:
- Bottom pipes – 2 pieces, 64’’ each
- Bow pipes – 2 pieces, 91’’ each
- Bottom connector pipes – 2 pieces, 21’’ each
- Connecting pipe with the Bungee cords - 2 pieces, 27.5’’ each
- Bow holder pipe - 2 pieces, 34.5’’ each (additional work is required for the edges)
- PVC pipes – ½’’ – 4 x 10 ft
- PVC Elbow joins 45 degree - 4 pieces
- PVC Elbow joins 90 degree - 4 pieces
- T-connector - 4 pieces
- Solvent Cement (All weather condition)
- Electrical tape
- Bungee cords
- Rubber rings -4 pieces
- Burlap material
Approximate weight of the blind with burlap: 11-12 lb.
Note: If the joins are too tight, you can sand them down with some sandpaper and then use a hair dryer to warm up the edge of the pipes (they should expand a little).
1. Worm up the edge of PVC Elbow joins 45 degree, 90 degree and (A) Bottom pipe
2. Use Solvent to attach T-connector with (A) Bottom pipe and Elbow joins
3. Pull the rubber rings through the (B) Bow pipe. Repeat the previous steps for the opposite side.
4. (E) Bow holder pipe - 2 pieces, 34.5’’ each
(additional work is required for both edges)
5. Glue the part E to the A and B
(Do the same for the mirrored section)
6. Attach two sections by using the (C) Bottom connector pipes (no glue).
7. Pull the bungee cords through the (D) Connecting pipes
8. Attach the bungee cords to the (B) Bow pipes
(Optional: Use electrical tape for all joins)
Assemble the carcass of the blind. Cut and sewed burlap based on the carcass size.
Don’t sew the top of the blind to make like a flapper (see the picture).
Pull some stick or piece of the PVC pipe (36’’- 40‘’) through the folded edge of the burlap material. Tie the left and right ends with rubber bands.
