This is what we like to see. A great template with attachments marked clearly.
How do I make a template?
The first step is getting your hands on a piece of card board or poster board which will span the entire window opening. Something with a little rigidity is preferred. Please do not to use scrap, printed material as it makes reading the attachment notes more difficult.
Attach the template material to the outside of the window. Any type of masking tape works fine. From the inside of the vehicle, draw the edges of the net EXACTLY how you want the Window Net to be shaped. Do NOT just trace the window opening. The extra lines confuse us. CUT OUT the final window net template.
Our cutter here just lays the template out on the material and cuts it to the exact size of the template, so your submitted template needs to be the EXACT SIZE AND SHAPE of your desired window net.
Any templates received which are not the exact size (i.e. “Add an inch here” or are not cut to size) will be charged a $25 template fee.
Write your contact and shipping info ON the template. This ensures we do not misplace your info during production.
Package and contact Overland Protocol for mailing instructions
Please fold the template as few times as possible or roll and ship in a tube.
SFI Certification Requirements
To be in compliance with SFI 27.1 Certification, window nets are required to be constructed either entirely from 1″ Webbing Material, or from Mesh Material with a strip of 1″ Webbing at 8 inch intervals across the length of the net. The net must be secured to the vehicle on the top and bottom by either a Spring Rod or Latch System. This allows for a quick disconnect of the net by the occupants, regardless of the position of the vehicle. For small triangle style nets grommets are recommended.

We offer window nets in two material options. One inch webbing for racing sanctions where SFI certified nets are required and a mesh for all purpose use as well as select racing sanctions.
You can order your nets with various attachments. All have their own advantages and requirements. Please check with your race sanction FIRST to see what is legal for your class. For SFI approval, you must use rods (spring or fixed) on the top and bottom of your net.
How do I order?
