Product Overview

The "Ultra Protect" basement window well covers are designed with "Safety" and "Security" for your home and family in mind. These versatile basement window well covers are manufactured using virtually indestructible clear polycarbonate plastic riveted to a continuous structural grade aluminum angle rear support. These basement window well covers will support a minimum of 250 lbs. when properly installed using our patented "SAF-T Lock" Locking System that is included with each "Ultra Protect" window well cover. Installing these basement window well covers over your basement window wells minimizes the risk of persons falling into deep, uncovered, unprotected basement window wells, preventing possible injury. The model RT600 (45 in. x 38 in.) basement window well cover is designed for use over Rectangular shaped Egress basement window wells. Its versatility makes it possible to be installed and trimmed to the profile of any type (steel, plastic, brick, wood tie, concrete etc.) basement window wells. Once installed it can be trimmed to the profile (plus up to a 1 in. overhang around the perimeter) of the window well openings using an ordinary jigsaw with an aluminum cutting blade (8 to 12 teeth per in. blade for best results)to make for a perfect fit window well cover. A patented, solid steel locking system with pull pin release quickly unlocks the basement window well covers (without the use of a tool, required by code) from inside the basement window well.

Please clarify:

Is this 45 in. side to side of window well (parallel to foundation) or 45 in. back to front of window well (perpendicular to foundation)? Will it work if the window well is about a foot lower than the top of the window & it must sit at an angle?
Asked by: DM
This well cover is 45'' parallel to the foundation and 38'' going away from the foundation. It does need to be mounted at an angle to ensure that water does not pool.

45 in. x 38 in. Rectangular Clear Polycarbonate Window Well Cover is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product! This was easy to install. It has been extremely helpful in keeping the water out of the basement window well while still letting light in. We've been happy with the hardware and the included instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best DIY Cover I've Found Delivery was very quick. Installation was as described. Cover looks good and functions as described. Home Depot had the best price by far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Nice Product I bought two of these window well covers. They were time consuming to install but when I was done they looked great and fit the opening like a custom cover. I like the locking hold down pins because they give a measure of security against unprepared intruders. A serious burglar would probably figure a way to pry them off. I also like the way they sit flat which makes them blend in better than the high covers. All in all I'm pretty pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit well, good price The window well cover was easy to install. A good feature is that it latches from the inside, making it more burglar-proof. It seems to be sturdy enough, although I did not try standing on it. Best price of any cover this size,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was able to adapt this for a crawl space access cover Easy to install, and my ability to adapt it for a crawl space access cover was easy. So far it has withstood a 50 mph wind with no problem and have had two snow storms on it with no leakage and no apparent problems. Easy to remove and replace.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done at a reasonable price. It provided me with the cover and the framing to work with. I had to customize to fit my needs but that is what I expected. Reasonable price as these things can be expensive. Got the job done.
