It's not very hard, you just need a tape measure and a pencil.  See our Measuring page here and download our measuring worksheets.

Yes, absolutely. To achieve any length beyond our standard 7' (84”), we simply use two or more covers and join them with couplers. Couplers are made of the same material as the covers and are very inconspicuous. The longest cover we ship is 7' long due to shipping restraints. Anything over 7' will be split into 2 pieces and combined with a coupler.

Yes but only for large commercial orders. However, the standard semi-gloss white powder coated surface or the urban steel finish can be painted by you, but we recommend that you consult a professional painter.

Not at all. Simply remove the old end caps and then you can remove the faceplate and damper.

Very little if any. You will need to take proper safety precautions, which includes safety glasses and gloves to protect against sharp objects. Being that the old heaters may be 50 to 60 years old, they may have been painted and/or caulked to the wall. It may be necessary to cut the caulk joint at the wall. There is no set rule for removing the old heaters, but some times you may have to "not play nice with them." For the most part, it is very easy.

No, absolutely not. EZ Snap™ Heater Covers were designed for hot water baseboard heat and we do not recommend installing on electric heaters as it could create a fire or electrical hazard.

Recycle. Being a green company we recommend that you recycle old steel so they can be made into new goods. We do not take trade-ins. After installation is complete, you can ship the old parts back to us, using the box your new covers arrived in, and we will recycle them for you.

Start installing, what are you waiting for. Most of our customers say it takes more time to unpack than to install. See our Installation page here

Assuming you have removed your old covers, you simply place the new cover on your heater. After that, you pop on the end caps.

Cover first, then end caps.

Sometimes the end caps may seem a little tight which is a good thing. Pre-fitting the end caps on the panel before hanging the covers on the back plate will be well worth the time. If the panel doesn’t fit or is too long then you have an issue, that may require a little extra work to fix. This may require a jigsaw and a “fine tooth” metal cutting jigsaw blade, but is something that most do it yourselvers can handle.

You can cut the length of the cover itself, but will need to use the proper tools as the cover could become bent or damaged if not done properly. Preferably you need to use a good jigsaw with a fine cut metal cutting jigsaw blade. Hopefully, you measured correctly before ordering and determined you needed a custom length and called us. We provide free custom cuts!

We must remember they are called Heaters for a reason they heat up. Our covers cannot prevent burns but they can reduce the likelihood of getting burned. The small holes in the cover prevent fingers and tiny hands from getting inside the heater and getting burned that way. It can also help prevent getting cut on the aluminum fins. However, the cover itself can become hot to the touch and possibly cause burns depending on the temperature of the piping.

No, they will not, In fact, EZ Snap™ Covers have a lifetime warranty against rust. They are made of galvanized steel which is then coated with a semi-gloss white powder coating and oven baked. This ensures the finish will be durable and rust-free for a lifetime. If they ever rust we will replace them as long as the finish has not been compromised in any manner.
