When a storm is about to hit, the last thing you want to do is waste time screwing plywood over your windows. PLYLOX window clips let you quickly cover windows with plywood without installing any hardware or modifying your window casings.
PLYLOX clips slip over the edge of 1/2″ plywood sheets to keep them in the window opening. As wind blows across the plywood, the h-shaped clips transfer the force outward, holding the plywood securely in place.
To use the clips you simply measure the opening and subtract 1/4″ from each measurement to give you 1/8″ of clearance around the plywood sheet. You choose the number of clips depending on the size of the window and the expected velocity of the wind gusts.
To install the window covers, slip the proper number of clips over the edge of the plywood and push the plywood into place. To remove the plywood after the storm, push in towards the middle of the plywood to make the edges flex outward and pull from behind the clip.
A bag of 20 PLYLOX clips will run you about $30.
