Single-motion car sun shades mean cooler cars on hotter days.
Summer driving can mean blistering steering wheels, but our car sun shades make even the hottest summer days cooler. Why fight with large, awkward cardboard pieces when this Retractable Auto Sun Shade reduces interior temperatures and protects dashboards and upholstery.
Ready to park? The auto sun shade easily attaches to the far right side of the windshield (passenger side). Simply pull the pleated sun shade out and hook it onto the mounted brackets installed on the driver's side. Ready to go? The spring-loaded mechanism on the auto sun shade fully retracts. The Retractable Auto Sun Shade delivers a pleasant driving experience, no matter how hot it gets.
Although many vehicle models share the same size windshield, it is important to specify the following vehicle information when ordering Retractable Auto Sun Shades so we can send the best fit for your car:
MAKE (Honda, for example)
MODEL (Accord, for example)
BODY STYLE (2DR Coupe or 4DR Sedan, for example)
Customized items are not returnable.
Benefits of the Retractable Auto Sun Shade:
Concept excelent. Easy to use. Does not stay attached to the window.
I love the idea of this retractable shade. In the Honda Pilot, the mirror is in the way and the shade must come around the mirror. A better design would perhaps have made allowance with a cutout for the mirror placement or perhaps would have shades that meet in the middle. That being said, it does keep the car cool and does do what it was intended. There is a bit of a problem in closing the shade--one must remember to come under the mirror so that it is even in order to have the shade close smoothly.
I live in Florida, and the Retractable Sun Shade has been very effective at keeping the car cool when it is sitting in the sun. The setup and instillation was extremely simple, and I have purchased another one for my wifes' car. It is also compact enough that it is not noticeable when retracted.
After receiving the shade and unpacking it, I pulled it open to examine it and one of the elastic cords snapped. There was no way to repair it. I called the vendor and was sent a new one, although it took over a month. I received the replacement and installed it in my Honda Accord. Installation was straightforward. I extended and retracted the shade and it looked like it would be fine. This was at the end of summer/early Fall. There was no need to use the shade until the next summer. So the unit sat in the car for months, waiting for sunny, hot weather. Finally, it was time to use it. I opened it and it completely disintegrated, springy parts and such falling out all over. That was it. I'm not even going to bother trying to get another one.
Works fine and quick and easy to use. Easy to install. Much better than struggling with a folding cardboard shade.
The first sun shade I ordered arrived broken. The one that I replaced it with just broke after six months. I love it while it works, but it should last longer than six months for the price.
When I saw this sun shade in Sky Mall magazine I thought what a perfect solution to constantly folding and unfolding a sun shade and throwing it in the back seat of my vehicle and then what do I do with it when I am carrrying guests, It is so unwieldly. Solution - Retractable Sun Shade.
Easy to install and perfect for keeping out the hot FLorida sun.
Although I think the price could be lower, I am very pleased with this product. It is very easy to install and to use the retractable sun shade is a snap. I would suggest you purchase this if you are interested in a quick way to lower the heat inside your car; over-looking the somewhat high price.
I buy a lot from skymall and its all excellent except this. The mounting clips broke before I even installed them and the clips on the shade have little snap ins that broke also I bought one for my H2 hummer and navigator and both did the same thing. They are both useless to me.
Great change from the old foldable kind. Easy to install and use. Only caution, little tough to hook to the attachment closer.
The design and idea are fine. I like it, but it's not made to last. Need to be more solid.
I'm somewhat surprised regarding some of the negative reviews I read here for this product. I have one set for a couple years now and am very happy with the quality and functionality of these shades. I find them very convenient to use and quality of reflective material is very high. In fact I'm here ordering another set, highly recommended.
The best sun shade ever, but a little bit pricey.
I have been using the shade for over a year. It's easy to use, effective and has held up in the hot weather in the deep South, where my truck is parked outside all day. It tends to sag a bit with daily use in the summer, but pops back to shape in the winter. I would recommend this product to anyone!
Easy to Install. Blocks the sun as promised. Much more stylish than collapseable products available. Doesn't block views. NOTE: Not silver-colored as other products. Beige color. Be sure to install relatively close to top of glass so you can turn sun visors down for extra support.
I like having a discrete mounted windshield sunshade available at all times. No more digging around in the floorboard for the bulky thing or storing it in the winter. Although my rear-view mirror does get in the way, the blind can either be pushed down or pulled in front of it. I haven't decided which I like best. I made the mistake of hooking it up immediately after sticking the mount on the left side panel and it pulled the mount off. I think if I had l let it set-up for a few hours, it might have held up to the pressure. The panel is also very narrow and curved so I plan to use superglue to reattach it. My arms are very short and it is quite a stretch from the drivers seat to pull it across the windshield and I also hold on to it when I release it back into it's case. You have to be careful and baby the blind, as it is easy to bend and pucker.
Easy to install, slides back & forward nicely, have to work around the rearview mirror, but that's easily done & doesn't hurt the integrity of the shade. Love the way it folds up and seems to disappear on the passenger side. Great product!
I like the shade and it was pretty easy to install, it does take 2 people to install. There are a few things I would like to see improved as the item is rather expensive. The screen could be a bit stiffer so as not to sag so much. Retracting is fast but doesn't always latch closed back into the base.
great sun shade with no storage problems.
Our 1st one was installed 6 mos. ago.
We bought 2 more to install in our 2 other cars.
Be sure to follow the EXACT procedure in the install instructions to assure a solid seal on the windshield.
A great innovation for southern sunny climates.
My retractable windshield shade is so easy and
convenient. No more hunting for the window
shade in the back of the car. No more struggling
with unfolding the shades and trying to get two
into a good position on the windshield. No more
snags or holes in the shade because some stepped on it or poked it with something. And -
no more struggling to fold up the shade and
put it away for winter. I love this product.
Terrible product. Fixtures melt off in the heat...and this item is supposed to keep the heat out. They also don't tell you it is not returnable. DO NOT BUY. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!!!!!!
So far I'm not very happy with the shade. My windshield is very large and there is at least a 1 1/2 inch gap at the top and bottom for the hot sun to get in.
This shade works very well and has made all the difference in getting into my car on a hot day . It is very easy to install and to use .... it beat having to fumble with the portable shades and it stores easily!!
I love this shade! Would highly recommend! Just don't let your kids let it retract like a rubberband - - GREAT product!
After years of struggling to open and close ordinary sunshades and trying to get them to actually stay in place to keep my car cool, I finally found the answer!
The Retractable Sunshade makes things very convenient and is extremely attractive. Custom made for each vehicle make and model, it is easy to install and easy to use. I notice people passing and giving admiring -even envious-glances. I've already shared buying information with family and friends.
Clever idea and it works as advertised! Easy to install and use. really like not having to take down and up a sun shade every time I need to use it.
Great idea and product works well but could be engineered for a better fit on the windshield.
I saw this great product over a year ago but was hesitant to buy it becuase of the price. Well I got a newer car and finally got it and just love it! I like the custom size for my vehicle and it works great and is fun to use. Friends get in the car now and want to help bring it across to me as well as help put it away onto their side of the window.
It does a much better job keeping the heat out and everything cooler when I get in it now, mainly becuase it goes right down to the edge of the windshield so it won't heat up my black dash board and trap the heat in the car like with my old cardboard protector I was using.
And the best part is that you don't have to store it like the big window shades out there!
Just to let you know, it attaches to your windshield with sticky square things, not to the sides of your windsheild support beams (apply in the shade or at night if you live in a hot environment so it will stick better).
Visibility is good on the passenger side but the hook on my side took a littel getting used to because I left a little gap so I can see movement while driving and it catches my eye. So just be sure to put it as close to the sides as you can.
The installation was simple. The return on the investment has been great. It is easy to use and you don't have to fumble with a flimsy fold up piece of cardboard covered with aluminum. This is simply put great. Keeps the car cool and is out of the way in an instant.
Skeptical at first, I am now sold on my retractable sun shade. After purchasing multiple folding sun screens for my minivan, I decided to buy one from SkyMall that should last as long as I own the van. After waiting the recommended 24 hours after installation, I tried my new sun screen on one of the hottest summer days in Austin, TX. The sun screen was very easy to use and kept my car cooler than expected. Most importantly, I did not have to "fish around" behind my seat to find my old folding sun screen. I just reached over to the right side of my windshield and slid my new screen across to the left and hooked it into place....easy! It's also very simple to unhook and snap back in place after using. I am a happy customer!
GOOD IDEA BUT NEEDS TO BE STIFFER. WHEN FOLDING BACK IT IS HARD TO GET THE FOLDS IN LINE WITHOUT SOMEONE IN PASSENGER SEAT FIXING IT.
I put this shade on my car the day I received it. I use it daily and love it. It is so easy to use, unlike the old shade that I had to put in the window. I think this is a wonderful product.
Purchased two of these car shades - one for my wife's Nissan Murano and one for my Ford F-250 truck. Very easy to install using provided 3m tape and worked just as described. Very noticeable difference when reentering your car. Dash is not boiling hot and car cools off very quickly now. Love them and they look good as well!
The shade is out of the way when not in use and convenient to use
This is my eighth shade and have recommended them to dozens of my friends, most of whom have purchased one or more. I do not remove them from cars I trade in, because they end up getting me a better trade-in price. Needless to say I love these shades and I am very surprized I do not see many of them on other vehicles. I highly recommend them to all vehicle owners. Treat yourself and get rid of those nasty Silver Roll-ups and get one of these shades. You will love it.
This product is very easy to install and use. No bulky shades to put in the windows. Love this product
I was a little apprehensive but I was very tired of carrying around large window shades that took up needed room. The retractable sun shade proved to be a great investment. I was able to install it in less than 15 minutes. It does not cause an obstruction in my front window when it is collapsed and best of all I can easily pull it accross everytime I get out of my vehicle. I love it and would absolutely recommend it.
The Rectrable Sun Shade was easy to install and operates well. I use it for quick trips into a store and use my thicker shade for all day parking.
The Retractable shade works fine. It is so easy to use and it keeps the car cooler. i tis much easier than the movable shade we had before getting this one. We really like it.
Have you ever fiddled with those car window shades that won't cooperate? This will solve that problem. You simply slide it across your window then latch it in place. Plus, since it is attached to your window, you never have to worry where to put it. It is always in place and ready to go. One of the best investments I have made for my car.
I bought a retractable sun shade for my husband's van as he is in and out of his car many times during the day. It is fantastic! No more fumbling around and trying to find the silve monster to fight it to stay in the windshield behind the mirror and sun visors. I am buying quite a few for Christimas presents this year. The relatives can think of me every time they get in their car!
I had been looking at the Retractable Auto Sun Shade for years before I finally decided to buy it. The one thing that frustrated me after I ordered it was that it was going to take 30 days to receive it because they are custom made. Well, I received it in about 4 days! I don't believe it was custom made as the box had the measurements printed on it. The installation was not very easy and I would like to reinstall it but the tape is very strong and I don't want to ruin it. Anyway, it is much easier to use than a normal sun shield, but the black handle gets REALLY hot. Other than that, I would recommend this to anyone - just make sure that the measurements are correct. I think mine could have used another inch or so from top to bottom.
I loved the retractable sun shades. I bought two and I love them even if one did not fit my 2010 Camaro but I used it on my Avalanche instead. They are awesome I do not have to worry about folding and putting it up. All I do is just release one side to let it go to the other side and we can't even tell that it is installed. WE LOVE IT AND WE RECOMMENDED TO EVERYONE. I am getting ready to order 3 more 2 for my two other cars and one for my father. I love them.
Issue while retracting it. There are wrinkles which makes it hard to go back.
Very easy to install, it fit our 2011 Chrysler Town & Country perfectly. Very easy to use, just slide it across the windshield in front of the mirror and you are set to go! It's such a relief from battling with the folding silver cardboard ones that never quite fit!! Love it!
I think this is the best item since sliced bread. I was easy to install and it is so easy to use. I am so glad I found it in the Skymall magazine on my way to Denver.
The shade is easily accessible to driver, doesn't interfere or obstruct passenger's view. I love it. Not like the unsightly reflective ones we used to use. GREAT. THANKS
The shade cannot be installed in My Range Rover because the rearview mirror is in the way. Why did they ask to specify brand, model and year...It's a joke!!!!
Saw this while browsing a sky mall magazine on a flight. Had never seen a product like this. Installation was very easy with the instructions provided. Love the product. It sure beats all those cardboard ones. What I love most is the fitting to the windshield. It covers 90% of the window area and keeps my car interior much cooler. Thank you for this outstanding product. I plan on buying one for my daughter's car.
Saves a lot of time. Now instead of opening up the back of my SUV to get out the shades I just have to pull it accross. Very happy with the product so far.
easy to use, works well and very effective. I would highly recommend it.
does not live up to the picture in the magazine
I have been looking for this particular product after seeing it in my friends car. It works great. You do want to make sure that you click it all the way open when you are not using it. Other than that it is great
I'm impressed with this item. It was easy to install and very easy to use. As I understand California law, there might be a problem there, as it mounts directly to the windshield which is a no no there, but since I live in Colorado, it's not a problem here.
love the shade; fellow at carwash can not return the shade to the proper position
Shade really works well. Helps to keep the car cooler. Of course nothing will completely block this Arizona heat, but it sure helps.
Pulls across smoothly and goes around the mirror without any problems.This is the second one we have had. Next new car will definately get another one.
This is the second item, same type, I have purchased, because the first one was a very good solution for my particular problem: to many sunlight trhough the windshield while my car is parked.
We live in Vegas & the sun is always out so we bought one of these for all our cars, they are easy to install and work great!
I really like the simplicity and ease of use of this sun shade. It was easy to install and is very easy to use. The only 2 areas of slight concern are:
1.On our van, it is a long ways to reach across to grab so the larger the vehicle the less user friendly it can be.
2. I havent had any issues with the adhesive but if those lose their seal how do you get new ones?
Love it, no fuss no muss. love it.. No more reachinging into the back and try and find your shade, half the time you do not use it. with the retractable sunshade you will use it daily. love it
First let me say these are great products, I have 12 friends who have them in various makes and models of foreign and domestic vehicles. This is why I decided to order one for my 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
The shade is too large, fortunately I went ahead and sold it to a neighbor who wanted one for their 2012 Toyota Prius V and it fit perfect.
Looks like I'll still be shopping for a product for me. :(
Received the sun shade in good condition and installed as directed. Works easily and retracts completely as advertised. Probably a little over-priced with shipping and handeling!
THIS DOES NOT FIT AS SHOWN IN THE PICTURE AND IT IS CERTAINLY NOT A CUSTOM FIT JUST FOR YOUR CAR. THEY SAY TO PULL IT CLOSED "OVER" THE REAR VIEW MIRROR. BECAUSE OF THAT IT HAS A HUGE AMOUNT OF SPACE OPEN AT THE TOP OF THE WINDSHIELD ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE TOP. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE PURCHASE.
Love this product easy to install. saves a lot of time and very user friendly. Properly lining up the sticky mounts was a bit annoying, but worth it inn the end.
I have tried many different sun shades before. Have been looking for one which is less cumbersome to put on and pull back. This shade is the best I have bought so far. Super easy to install. I would certainly recommend it to my friends.
this product easy to install. Once installed it takes very little effort to slide it across the windshield. this is better then the folded sunscreen which take two hands to put up. this product one finger and little effort to pull ti over to the driver side hook
Just moved to FL from KY and knew the sun would be a major issue. The unit was simple to install and fit great. Very easy to use, slight issue for passengers but nothing big. Wife says it's a bit of a bummer.
I have used my new Retractable Auto Sun Shade for 3 days now & find that it is one of the most useful, convenient, and easy to install items I have ever put in my car. I would recommend this item to anyone!
Honestly, this car sun shade is the best idea since sliced bread! I have gotten one for each car in the family and we love the ease with which we can keep the car cool even in San Antonio summer heat in excess of 90 degrees!
I am not a mechanically inclined person, but the shade was very easy to put in...I live in Colorado where it's sunny most days so it's a necessity here!
Easy to install. Easy to use. Keeps my car so much cooler while protecting my cars interior. I LOVE IT!!!
The instructions received were easy to use. Love it
Just received it, will have to modify as they are too long and won't fit, hope they will last after it.
We wanted to buy a retractable sun shade and looked all over, but when we read about the shade from Skymall we decided to stop looking any further. We were concerned about the seeming gap with the rearview mirror, but it turned out not to be a problem at all. Another plus is it pulls easily from across the passenger window, even in our van. With the temperature at 112 degrees this week, this proved to be a winner!!!
mounts to windshield with adhesive.. multiple hot days and adhesive bracket will surely fall off windshield.. I thought it would connect to the A pillars.. needs to have a cutout for rearview mirror also.. Stick with the cheaper ones
Easy to install - easy to operate - almost invisible when retracted.
I have been looking at this product for years every time I travel. Perfect product and very easy to install.
Overall it is a good idea item, but it doesn't shade whole front dashboard. It doesn't retract itself all the way, requires manual support to put it back to full retract position. This item is somewhat overpriced for my opinion. I would pay $25 worth if I ever buy again.
So glad to see that you carry this product. I have used this type of product for years on other vehicles and it is the best. The company I used in the past has evidentally gone out of business and was very happy to see you sell a similar type of sunshade.
This sunshade was very easy to install & works & looks great!
The sun screen is a nice addition to the Tacoma. It is easy to install and easier to use.
THIS IS THE SECOND SHADE I BOUGHT. BOTH OF THEM FIT PERFECTLY IN MY DIFFERENT CARS. SAME MAKE BUT DIFFERENT YEAR AND MODEL,
VERY GOOD FOR PROTECTING ONE FROM THE HOT SUN IN THE SUMMER.
I like this item so far. It works well and is convenient.
It was easy to install onto my Prius and keeps it cool. Much, much better than those fold out sun shades.
Easy to install, easy to use, NICE! Try it out for yourself.
It was super easy to install and use. It works great.
It's too difficult to properly install and the "ease" of it is questionable. I really would like to send both back for a full refund. The self putteruppers serve the purpose and not quite so frustrating.
I was very pleased with the promptness in which I received my order for the retractable auto sun shade. It does keep my car much cooler. This is something needed for cars in southern AZ/
I love this sun shade. Its the best shade i have ever had for my van. It gets up to 117 degrees here, so I hope the sticky things last.
Easy to install. So easy to pull over and fix. No more struggling with unwieldy sunshades. I'm happy
use it all the time terrific
I bought this shade a while back, maybe 2 or 3 months ago, and I installed it right away. And I really gotta say that installing it is the hardest part. But once you get it where it'll work it's awesome. When it's closed it's out of the way, when it's open it's not rubbing against the roof, which is a problem I had with my last cardboard one, and it lets in a little bit if light still which is good in winter and can be a little annoying in the summer. But all in all it was a great buy
I installed it on my wifes Honda Civic and she hated it from the beginning, said it was cheesy! I didnt think it was that bad myself. Anyway, it was easy to install but depending on the car, the rear view mirror can be a problem since the shade has to go over it.
My wife loves !the retractable sun shade
No more floppy sunshades all over my car! Seems to work great. I live in Vegas and sunshades are a must if you don't want burns from the seat or steering wheel. Interested to see how it handles the 100+ degree temps next summer...
My daughter has one, and I liked how easy it was to use - so I got one too!
How else to quickly shade the windshield? This works as advertised. Much simpler than butterflies that refuse to adjust and tuck in under visors.
I've been using the retractable auto sunshade for about 2 months now and I do love the convenience! No more fighting with the fold up thing that doesn't fit. Installation was easy and the accordion structure is staying intact. I think as long as you don't abuse it with too much action it wasn't designed for it holds up well enough. The real test will be next summer! I live in Florida and I'm hoping the brackets don't melt off in the heat. We shall see...
Easy way for sun shade compared to folld up units
I bought this about a month ago and it's great. I have no problems with my retractable sunshade. !
The car is south cooler and it is easy to use!!
Installation was as easy as the instructions indicate. !I have only used it a couple of times as yet, but it works as promised. !Don't know yet for how long.
I bought this for our new hybrid Avalon and it fits perfectly. Very easy to use and does the job.
Tried installing twice, once during the day and the tabs didn't stick so I waited for things to cool off and tried again at night. This must be the cheapest adhesive on the market, the tabs wouldn't even stay up on their own, let alone if I actually attached the sun shade. I loved the idea but horrible execution.
I bought this a couple of weeks ago and I love it! It keeps the car warm (on those in frequent days of sunshine). It is very easy to use and I don't know why I didn't get it before!
The best thing ever.....99 yesterday
This is the second one that I've purchased. I sold the car with the first one purchased and new owner loves it. He might be buying one for his wife's vehicle. I purchased this one for my new car as I live in Tucson, AZ and the sun is killer. The retractable shade helps to keep the interior cooler and is handier than the portable folding ones I've seen. Love it!!!
I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to install and use. It is small and doesn't take up very much space which is the reason I wanted it.
I didn't like the way it fit I'm returning it back.
Bought this for my husband's car. It is wonderful, and I will purchase one for my car as well.
It's much more convenient than those flimsy silver ones that you have to put up and take down all the time.
Second day of use, it fell off the front window. I'll be returning it and getting my money back!
I used to have a different company's retractable sun shade on a prior vehicle and thought I was buying the same thing. This one does not provide as much coverage and is not the same high end heat resistant material. I still like it better than the one I had to open and put up in the windshield each time.
This is the second sunshade like this we have owned. Why? Well, it is attached to the car so there is no "flopping around" as you try to get it into the windshield well, There is no storage issue, it protects you 100%. It so easy to use, and you do not need anyone in the passenger seat to use it. Once you own it you will ask yourself "How did I live without this?" See my pictures... I tried my best...
I purchased a new car and wanted to keep the dash board and interior from being so hot from sitting in the sun. This shade works great, easy to install and use. I also purchased on for my sister.
This is, so far, a very good shade. Hopefully it will last a long time
Definitely recommend. Fits well. Functions easily.
Works great. Works great.
I have bought these retractable shades for all the cars I have owned and have loved them. They are so easy to fit and use. They do not obscure the view whendriving but do a great job of keeping the car shaded in the sunshine! Love them and I highly recommend them.
We have owned three of these shades--I bought the last one because the first one literally wore out after 10 years! We have also given two as gifts. They are the best--so convenient for those who need sun protection in hot weather.
It took me quite a while to install this unit and I am not at all happy with the method used to secure the two ends...especially the driver side. All modern windshields are curved and the attachment brackets should be angled (not 90 degrees between the glus section and the attachment "fin") so the unit ernds up aimed directly accross the windshield, not into the windshield. The extremely small "post and notch" method of holding the unit open is horrible...especially for those with large fingers. One does not want to have to fit a very small post into a small groove everytime one exits the car. Much better would be a steel piece on the window and a niobium magnet on the unit. Trying to mount the two glued sections to the windshield was a nightmare...had to file them down to loosen the fit or risk pulling the glue off, then getting them into the exact place (large fingers will not fit around the unit at the extreme side of the windshield) was very time consuming.
Put the shade on today and it seems great. The instructions were somewhat confusing. I had to read three times before it sunk in.
The instructions were very clear and installation was breeze, no problem going behind my rear view mirror either. Does a wonderful job of keeping the interior car's temp down.
Easy to install, easy to use, no more shade in the trunk, definitely a must have
I just bought this item two weeks ago.It's hard to believe that I managed with out it all these years !...it's also very easy to install
My dear wife is thrilled with her sun shade. It's easy to use and really easy to store. We wish we'd seen it years ago.
I was excited to get this installed and going. I have to say that it works just okay. My Walmart sun shade works better as it covers the entire window and is thicker than this material. It's a neat concept, but I prefer the old fashioned sun screen better. This doesn't seem to cover but 70% of the window and I do have the proper size, it's just how its made.
Love this! I hate using the "normal" sunshades they are such a pain, but living in Arizona you have to use one. This is perfect! I've bought one for every car I've owned since 2009.
I bought this item last October. I did not need it until March of this year. I noticed that it had a tendency to want to snap shut, so I was always cautious when opening and closing the shade. On the fourth use of this product, I carefully closed it; however, I lost my grip with only a few inches left, when the shade snapped shut - crinkling the shade beyond repair. Very disappointing.
Easy to install and is so quick and easy to use. I am very happy with this product
Bought this sunshade, looking for something that would attach to the windshield. As soon as I opened the package I thought it looked cheap, definitely not worth $50.
We installed it, and within two weeks, one set of strings that support the shade had snapped. Your money would be better spent buying an independent shade that you just roll up and put in your backseat when not using it. Highly disappointed.
Quick delivery-- love the sunshsde--easy to install--works great!
I bought this a few weeks ago and I love it. So helpful with keeping the steering wheel cooler in the hot Texas sun . The car isn't cool but better than it would be much hotter without it. Stays tucked away when not in use. Easy to use
The add in Sky Mall and the order form makes it sound like Hammacher Schlemmer manufactures each sun shade based on your car's exact dimensions, however, when you receive the package you'll quickly realize that it's made by another company altogether and the shade delivered actually fits a number of vehicle makes/models.
If this feedback were going to the actual manufacturer, I would say that the idea is good but the actual product needs some work. The side that houses the shade will warp from the heat and the shade will no longer be able to retract completely. Furthermore, there is no slot for the rear-view mirror so it is left to bake in the sun - probably even more so because the sun is being reflected from the shade! Finally, I'm not certain how much sun was being reflected because the shade appeared more translucent than reflective. There should be some kind of backing on it.
Very good product. It does fit the height of the window. I am disaopointed it goes outside the mirror, since it doesn't block as much light as possible. Also, I wish it were a little more opaque, to reduce temperature. Take the time to attach it at the proper height, it will fill most of the window.
I am concerned about one thing: How long will the retractibility last?
I love the sun shade but am unhappy that I paid about $60.00 for it at Skymall and could have ordered it from Improvements for only $29.99.....
I bought this about a month ago and was easy to install. I have no complaints, other than un-retracting the sunshade it's a bit tough to snap out. But it does it's job and fits my Lexus CT 200h F-Sport perfectly. Also, looks clean and not intrusive at all. Way better than putting on a regular sunshade.
I have bought several of these shades - one each for the cars in the family, and everybody loves to have one on their car. When the outside temperature is over 100, the shade keeps my car cool inside. An added feature is that the shade makes it easy for me to find my car in a crowded parking lot.
I use it already couple days, it's very good and easy to install
We purchased two of them and overall they are an excellent product. Both the shade and the adhesive hold up throughout the summer (100-120 degrees). Only complaints are that one has recently stopped retracting and will need replaced and Pepboys advertises them for $24.99.
We purchased this item maybe a month ago and love it.
we are stilll wondering where this item has been. You will get more orders from our friends as they like it too.
I purchased the retractable sun screen for my husband as a birthday present. Now instead of unfolding an awkward aluminum one that most times falls and slips out of place he simply pulls it over across the window, locks it in place and not worry about coming back to a very hot seat or steering wheel. We live in Arizona where the car temperature can get up to 140 degrees in the summer. Thank you SkyMall.
The fabric used is too thin and is too easily bent out of shape for it to retract properly. Do not waste your time or money on this product.
I'm so glad I got this sun shade because I don't need to be fumbling looking and it doesn't clutter up my car as all the other sun shade do.
My second purchase of this shade. Love it.
I am very happy with my sun shade, no more trying to find it and it works great.
Love this product. fits neatly to windshield. keeps car cool. no more looking for windshield shade and fighting to keep it up.
I got this for my wife, she is just so very happy with it. hated strugling with the old type
bought for mmy daughter. tried it and kept it and ordered her one.
I have these in all my cars, it especially good in my Smart car because it doesn't take up space. My only complaint is occasionally the little peg falls out, if you can find it it goes back in easily.
I bought this for my daughter in law due to us living in the south to keep her car cooler in the summer and she loves it
Easy install, works great
