Is there a way to trigger the Yard Mater Electric/Tension screen’s UP/DOWN operation other than through Radio Frequency? I am trying to send an IR sensor or 12 volt signal from a Control4 platform. Is there a way to do so without using the 12 volt RF wireless adapter? I have the adapter that came with the screen, however, the projector we are using does not have a 12-volt trigger output.

All Yard Master Electric Screens only use Radio Frequency to control the screen’s operation. If you have a projector that does not have a dedicated 12v trigger output port, you can use the ZOMS-TR12V-V2. This wireless 12v trigger accessory is included with all Yard Mater Electric/Tension with serial numbers beginning with 19AE and newer. The ZOMS-TR12V-V2 plugs to the projector’s power terminal so no 12v projector trigger is required.  Please click here for instructions on how to program the ZOMS-TR12V-V2.

My Yard Master has lines or wrinkles on the material. Will they disappear after stretching or what else can I do to eliminate them?

Wrinkles or lines found on the Yard Master projection material in most cases disappear when the material is stretched over the frame. If in case they don’t, we recommend using a fabric steamer to eliminate any lines or wrinkles.

Will my Yard Master 2 projection screen rust if I leave it outdoors for a long period of time (weeks, etc.)?

Eventually, yes. It is recommended that no projection screen, regardless of manufacturer/model be permanently left outside and exposed directly to the elements. The yardmaster is made for temporary outdoor events such as day excursions or weekend camping trips. It has a rolled sheet steel alloy frame that is coated in a rust-resistant black enamel for outdoor events. Just like any other piece of audio-video equipment, proper care and storage is required to maximize the Yardmaster’s operational lifespan.

Lastly, fold the material into thirds to condense the length, see user guide for visual. *If you prefer to roll the material, instead of folding into thirds, roll from one end to the other after folding in half twice.
  9. Unlatch the hinged support bars in each corner of the folding frame (A).
  10. Press in the silver locking buttons, near the folding joints, and slowly gather the sides of the folding frame

How many times do we recommend the Elite Yard Master Portable Projector screen material to be folded so it can be properly stored after each use? Is there a preferred number of folds to reduce the presence of wrinkles?

In order to have less memory lines or “wrinkles” from folding, here are a few tips. Don’t fold tightly or try to fold over the material as compact as possible. Both will leave pronounced memory lines. It is recommended to take note of how lightly folded the screen material was when it came from the factory and repeat that whenever you are packing the screen away. Another method when storing the screen is to gently and loosely roll the material and keep it in a safe, dry space at an optimal room temperature.

How do I alleviate screen creases?

The Yard Master 2 screen material is folded so that it can fit into a smaller package to decrease freight cost. If you notice crease lines on the material upon opening the box, there are a couple of things that can be done to alleviate them. The easiest method would be to allow the material to stretch on the Yard Master 2 frame. Over time, the creases will alleviate to a minimal. If after a few days you do not see any improvement, the second method in alleviating them would be the use of a hairdryer. Set the dryer on medium heat and blow on the material from its back side from about 3 feet away, concentrating only on the crease lines. Do not apply excessive heat as this will cause for the material to deform. You may need to repeat this process for a couple of consecutive days depending on the severity of the creases.

Are the legs and frame on the Yard Master and Yard Master 2 Series adjustable?

No, both the Yard Master and Yard Master 2 Series have a fixed height and length for all leg and frame parts included. The Yard Master 2 Series, however, does have optional extension legs that can be purchased to increase the bottom viewing area. Please click here for more information.

Can I use the YardMaster 2 series outside on a windy day?

In a calm wind below 10mph, yes. If it exceeds the 10mph, there is a chance of damaging the frame or the material itself.

Will my Yard Master projection screen rust if I leave it outdoors for a long period of time (weeks, etc.)?

After storing my DIY Screen, there are creases/wrinkles left on the material. Is there any way I can remove or limit the amount of creases?

The DIY screen material may have creases or wrinkles after it has been stored for an extended period of time. These are known as memory lines. This is both a normal and correctable phenomenon. The creases/wrinkles on the DIY material will disappear in most cases if the material is stretched out for about 24-48 hours. After that time has passed, the lines should vanish. To speed up the process of crease/wrinkle removal, you can try applying heat to the material (example: a blow dryer at low heat). If attempting to do this, please move the heat source across the material to avoid having the heat directly on one spot for a long time.

Is there a basic method of cleaning this Elite projection material?

Please see General Cleaning Instructions

Regarding the Yard Master 2 / Yard Master 2 WraithVeil Dual / Yard Master Plus Series products, Is there an issue with leaving the screen on the frame for long periods of time? Will the screen stretch out? Will the frame eventually warp? I’m looking to avoid constant assembly and disassembly.
