Mine didn't really come with anything to speak of making adjustments according to temperature and width of opening, so I just experimented until I got what I wanted. They do work very well to open the windows without being one more thing for me to have to attend to, so well worth the cost. Do be very careful and attentive during installation though, as during assembly, one snapped shut while I was holding it and nearly guillotined my finger tip off, which was quite painful and quite messy and put me out of working on my greenhouse until it healed.
The cold frame was actually sturdier than i expected. It is a handful to assemble, especially the lids, by yourself but it is do-able. It is a nice size and the lid support arms to raise the lids snap into place nice and tidy. It is a nice unit and I recommend it.
Great value and fairly good instructions. The press fittings at start of construction are extremely hard and require much encouragement at the end of a large rubber mallet. If you can't swing a heavy rubber mallet you can't build this. Otherwise it's simple nuts and bolts and a long day with a friend or family member. It can't be done alone it's just too ackward and you will need a ladder to assemble roof pieces.
Although the "snap" part was not as easy as it is made out to be, the greenhouse actually did go together fairly easily, and only a couple of tricky areas required my husband's assistance. The directions are all just diagrams whereas I would have preferred words. It took me about two full days to put this together. When you put yours together, don't slide the bottom gadgets into the upright support struts completely as you'll need to level and maybe move things around for the panels to fit. And support struts need to be centered over any joins.
I have been shopping around for a green house and this is the one I like, it looks nice and I can move around in it. The one I had was too short and no room to do any thing. I'm excited to plant veggies for the winter.
I love this green house, also has the option of expanding if I want later on.
Purchased for my wife for Mother's Day. Much more difficult to understand the directions than you would think. I had to take it apart twice as I realized that parts were not assembled in the correct manner. However, once put together correctly, it has withstood a hurricane that destroyed my neighbors shed. My wife loves it!
