Since I work at a prison, a large sun shade like this is frowned upon – you don’t want anything that can hide what is going on in your car. That is okay,though, because I did not ask to review this sun shade to use AS a sun shade. I asked for this fabric sun shield to prevent the trees at my house from dropping sap on my windshield and making it hard to see. I also got it so that I would not have to scrape my windshield free of ice this winter.
This is a pretty simple design, and is pretty easy to use.
I tried to put on one side at a time. That did not work well. However, when I used the hook and elastic band on the fabric sun shield to clip to by rear driver tire and set the driver mirror in the shield’s mirror pocket, I could easily clip the hook to the passenger front tire. After that, it was a simple process to hook the other two straps in place.
I like the window pocket, and I love how big it is. The sun shield covers the side windows of my cube completely. It also covers my large dodge pickup as well. I like the fabric and the shiny exterior and soft interrior looks like it would reflect a lot of sun without scratching my car.
I don’t like the stitching, and some amazon reviews talked about this. I also did not like the plastic tire clips.
However, at $13.00 I think it is a good product, and someone with a sewing machine can easily strengthen this cover into a great tool. Its worth it so I don’t have to scrape ice in the winter mornings.
I got this fabric sun shield in return for posting a review on my site.
