We no longer carry our holding blinds with steel poles in inventory. If you would like to order a blind with steel poles please contact us regarding availability and pricing.
Our steel blinds are NW Camo's heavy-duty blinds. The tip of the 1/2" diameter, 10" long solid steel foot is turned in a lathe to create a point. This point makes the foot go into the ground easier. The foot has 2" steel steps coming out on both the front side and the backside of the blind. Using the ball of your foot you can push the pole into the ground from either side of the blind. Setting up these blinds in hard-ground may require a hammer, but these steel blind poles were made so you can pound on them from the top.
All of our steel step-in blinds use durable cordura fabrics. Polyester webbing is sewn across the top and the bottom of the backside of the blinds to provide extra tear resistance from over-exuberant dogs jumping up on top of the blind or trying to push under the blind.
Polyproylene webbing is also used on all the vertical pole placements and the steel poles are attached to the webbing using a stainless steel washer and a rivet. The press-formed curved stainless steel washers are used so the rivets will not pull out of the webbing. The fabric is attached to each steel pole at both the top and the bottom of the blind. The poles will not fall out when carrying and handling these blinds.
Our blinds also have an attached webbing strap with a quick release buckle to wrap around the bind and keep the blind secure and not unroll during transport or storage.
If you want us to make blinds with more panels or different panel widths, then please contact us.
In the Steel Step-in Blinds, we offer you a choice of either a 4' blind (48" fabric height) or an approximately 5' blind (59" fabric height). Please note that the pole foot adds approximately 11 inches to the blind and this should be considered for transporting and storage of the blinds (48" fabric height blinds use 59" long poles, 59" fabric height blinds use 70" long poles).
You have many choices when it comes to camo patterns. If the camo pattern or blind you want is "Sold Out", then contact us and we will make one for you.
Product Care Instructions:
Removing steel poles from hard-ground requires some care as you have at least a 4-foot lever arm which can bend even a steel foot! To remove the blind from hard ground grab ahold of the top portion of the pole (not just the fabric) and make small circular motions while pulling the pole upward. By carefully working the pole in a small circular motion you can loosen the foot from the ground without bending the foot.
Cordura Fabrics are durable, but we recommend that you do not leave your blinds out. Over time sunlight will destroy fabrics; therefore, we recommend that you bring your blinds in after use. If the blinds are wet, then do not store them rolled up or mildew may form.
If you need to wash the blind, we recommend rolling it out on a driveway and using a hose to wet the fabric. Then use a mild detergent and a broom or brush to gently scrub the fabric and then hose it off. Let it air dry before rolling it up for storage.
