What is your best and easiest idea to protect your Sukkah from getting wet – any genius ideas for a good Sukkah Shlock?October 3, 2011 7:59 am at 7:59 am #838044happiestMember

I wish I could be more helpful, but it’s been a while.October 19, 2011 1:16 pm at 1:16 pm #838053Feif UnParticipant
The heavy rain over the first days caused my tarp to cave in the middle. For next year, I’m going to need a new shlock. ICOT, did you ever find out if Leiter’s sells that plastic shlock you mentioned?December 25, 2011 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #838054
(the info below was sent to “Feif Un”s email address, which he supplied in another thread. it’s being reposted here, just in case it is useful for anyone else.)
I looked up Leiters phone number and called them for the shlock info.
They do sell the accordion-fold style shlock, but it’s no longer made of corrugated white plastic – it’s now made of vinyl.
It is sold by size, and the size is customizable.
The sukkah itself has to be strong enough to support the frame; the person I spoke to said it isn’t suitable for a canvas sukkah. (Personally, I’d probably try to jury-rig something, but that’s what he said.)
He also confirmed that it’s the design I remember, which is based on the patented design of Tzvi Goldman from Lakewood.
