A list of companies that assemble the Garage-In-A-Box.

Asked by: JOHN77
If you have two people that are reasonably competent at following directions, and a 6 foot ladder, it is not bad to assemble. My son and I did it, last June, in less than four hours even with putting the cover on reversed the first time (eyelets toward the door is correct). The only thing heavy is the cover. Video also on YouTube.

How is this garage in a box rated for snow load? Also how is the 12x20x8 garage in a box rated for snow load

Asked by: Bolson
While ShelterLogic may not snow load rate the product, I live in the northeast US and the shape of the structure does not let large amounts of snow accumulate on the cover. Unless it is really wet snow, it tends to fall right off. The wet snow seems to only stay on the very top but as soon as the sun comes out, the greenhouse effect heats the inside enough to make that drop off the peak as well.

Does model 62693 come with internal ratchet straps for tightening outer shell periodically 

Asked by: Churchill13
The cover on this Shelter is attached by sliding cover rail pipes through a heat sealed pocket at the bottom of the cover. There are also two ratchets in each corner of the Shelter that are used to tighten the doors and cover. These ratchets are attached to the four corner legs of the shelter.
