I bought a 4x6 T Box blind from CHAS MAC in Houston, and bolted it on a tower I had fabricated for me. The T Box blind was not completely square, and looked to have had a fiberglass repair on one side, so I had to rip into the fiberglass to get the blind to sit on the tower. After the blind was sitting level, I attempted to bolt the box onto the tower, but only one bolt worked, and noticed the rest of the bolt holes where not inline with the bottom of the box. This tower design has worked with T Box blinds in the past, so I don't think it's a tower issue. I also noticed the windows close, but do not latch shut, so I am not sure why there is a lock on the door, as you can open the window to open the door from the inside.

Has anybody else had issues with T Box blinds?

A friend of mine had one that leaked really bad through the fiberglass. Not sure if it ever got fixed

I was using the wrong attachment method for the blind tower combo.

User error; I need to remember to be 10% smarter than what u am working with.

i love my t-box blind. the only thing I do not like are the windows. first of all, they do not latch. Last year with all the winter weather mix my windows literally froze shut and I could not open them up. once I got them open, they froze again and I could not shut them. any suggestions on that?

I agree with the poor window design, they should just use deerview and call it a day.
I bought a t box from another member on here and haven't hunted out of it yet, but seems solid, but windows are not as robust as mentioned. I am trying to think of ways to remedy that issue, but for now I don't have any practical ideas due to lack of experience hunting from it. If I can think of anything over the season and find something that works I will update.

No drip edges suck. I have a bucket of damprid I. There and still musty and humid. Water gets in at every window.

My only fiberglass blind is by Redneck Blinds. Third year and no leaks. Smells clean and new inside still. I'm pretty darn happy with it. I ordered it. They truck delivered to me. Blind needed no assembly. 10 foot tower had to be assembled. Did it myself. Took the blind by trailer to the back, dragged the tower. Connected the two and stood it up with the tractor, using the directions on Utube. It has become my favorite blind.

Windows don't leak, and there's a deflector over each window. It's well thought out.

When I get a place to call my own I will get a redneck or three....I picked up the t box blind pretty cheap and it will fill a need for the time being, and I hope to be able
To modify as time goes on. Gotta hunt from it first to see what needs done
