Posted by Kenji Kamimura on

We frequently get asked for advice on what size magnets would work best for magnetic blackout window covers used in campervans/caravans.

If it is, it would be wonderful if you could reach out and give us the feedback - we are always looking to provide useful information! The basic idea is to sew some magnets into the material of the window cover so they can magnetically attach to the...
