Detailed Description

Franklin Fabrication Canopy Cap

General Description

Franklin Fabrication Canopy Cap is designed to be a light weight, compact, reflective shade for use when rigging and while waiting on the grid. The simple design allows easy access and your cockpit is always shaded and cool. When you are ready for take off, slip the cover off and stow it in the included storage bag, in the glider while you fly. The light weight design is not meant for extended use outdoors. It is not a replacement for a heavyweight, all weather cover. Do not use it while trailering as it won’t allow the canopy to be locked. Price includes storage bag.

Please list as much information about your glider as possible in “Glider Type” section above: Glider Model, Wing Extensions, Winglets, etc.
