Hunting season is fast approaching, and for those who enjoy the thrill of hunting on water, having a reliable boat blind is essential. But why settle for a generic blind when you can customize one to fit your boat and wish list perfectly? Enter the world of EMT Conduit and Connectors, a game-changer for hunters looking to elevate their boat blind game.

Why Choose EMT Conduit & Connectors?

  1. No Welding: Maker Pipe Connectors clamp securely around conduit in various ways and make it easy to craft custom frames without using power tools or welding.
  2. Budget Friendly:You're in charge of the build which means you can keep your budget in mind when planning the features to include in your custom boat blind.
  3. Customization: One of the primary benefits of using EMT Conduit and Connectors is the ability to create a custom fit for your boat. No more settling for one-size-fits-all solutions. With some elbow grease and creativity, you can design a blind that meets your specific needs.
  4. Flexibility:You can easily loosen a connection with a 5mm hex wrench or utilize the Maker Pipe Quick Clamps to make your custom boat blind easy to assemble and take back apart when it’s not in use.
  5. Durability: Galvanized steel electrical conduit is known for its strength and durability, and Maker Pipe fittings are made in South Carolina with American steel and have a corrosion resistant Zinc coating. Combining these materials results in a strong blind that will stand the test of time.

A Simple Boat Blind From The Community

Elijah, a member of the Maker Pipe community, showcased a fantastic example of an adjustable hunting boat blind built with EMT Conduit and Connectors. Here's a quick overview of his build:

    Framework: The main frame sits flat on the boat when not in use, making it easy to store. When it's time to set up the blind, the frame can be easily lifted and secured in place.

        Hinging Mechanisms: The adjustable angle connectors serve as a hinging mechanism, allowing the blind to be easily adjusted. This technique is not only useful for boat blinds but can be applied to various other projects. This video isn't the exact same build, but it shows the same idea and use of the Adjustable Angle Connectors.

        Multi-Stage Setup: Elijah's design features a two-stage setup. The primary frame lifts up, and then an additional panel extends up, providing more coverage and concealment for the hunters inside.
