Platinum Caps         


Platinum Canopy Caps from Franklin Fabrication

Platinum Cap covers are designed to be a light weight, compact reflective shade cover for use when rigging and while waiting on the grid.  The strapless design allows easy access to the cockpit during assembly.  When you are ready for launch, slip the cover off and stow it in the included storage bag, in the cockpit while you fly. It is not meant for extended use  outdoors or while trailering as it won’t allow the canopy to be locked when it is on the glider.  The Sun Shield option is designed to prevent burns to the cockpit caused by the suns rays reflecting off of the inside of an open canopy.
