Snap or glide?
#1
I’m getting ready to replace my temporary magnetic rear curtains with a more permanent version - and I am debating whether to use snaps or glide tape. 

Pros/cons:
Glide tape would be more secure if a dog or human sits/lays against the curtains. Curtains would not flop around as much when open. Glide tape may be more prone to failure due to dogs/humans laying against it. 

Snaps would be relatively secure but may unsnap if body lays against it. Curtains would be dangly or completely removable. Snaps would be replaceable if failure occurs. 


Honestly- I am favoring snaps, but welcome your feedback.

Snaps sound better to me. It sounds like if they fail, they unsnap and you can resnap them back on? Just my totally uneducated opinion. =)

Yeah- I ordered a Big set of snaps. Should allow me to refit rear windows and probably do front side windows too.. (the wrap around cab curtains are a pita. I want to remove the whole cab setup and put in window-mount curtains . Will also be safer as they will allow the doors to open in case of emergency (unlike cab curtains which block egress..)
