The sun screens can be ordered with the buttons alone or buttons and Velcro. They sew a small piece of Velcro on each corner. We ordered with both, this way we can attach the tops with the buttons and the bottoms can be attached with either the buttons or the Velcro that is attached to the bottom of the emergency window, so you can open the window for air circulation and or a FAST escape. The bottom buttons will separate from the base with pressure on the window.

Hope that answered your question?

I'm still interested in why you choose the buttons instead of the velcro, especially since you already paid to have the velcro added to begin with. I understand how you installed the buttons, and I can't think of a better way myself. But the velcro required no drilling at all. ???

I just got a bunch of these for the motorhome. I'll be installing them tomorrow, and camping w/ them all next week. I'll post back with how I made out when I return.

Sorry, I missed this post...

The reason I went with the buttons on all the sun screens is because of the occasional high winds and I was afraid that the Velcro would have separated and may have blown off. On the bottoms of the sun screens I got both buttons and Velcro, so that we could open the crank out windows for ventilation. The Velcro is stuck to the inside of the window and we just unclip the bottom buttons and fold the ends over to the inside of the windows and we can then crank them out for overnight. Using the buttons, you can only crank the windows out about 1.5", which is still a good amount if the exhaust fans are running

I won't be driving down the road w/ them installed.
In case anybody cares, the velcro hook/loop that sticks to the coach will start to drift along the side if the cover is large/heavy and its very hot outside and in direct sunlight.

So, WD40 on the coach side hook/loop for removal, and button installation it is. At least for the tops; I will attempt to keep the velcro on the bottom and see if the buttons up top are enough.
