Seamless vs. In-Channel Vent Visors: What's the Best Window Deflector?

Seamless vs. In-Channel Vent Visors
Videos & Sounds

You’re a fan of fresh air. There’s something to be said about breathing in cool, crisp air rather than re-circulated stale air. But, unfortunately, fresh air is only a luxury you get to enjoy half of the year—when it’s not raining or snowing outside. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. When you install vent visors on your vehicle, you can keep your windows open and enjoy fresh air all year long. The way vent visors help you achieve this is by channeling rain, sleet and snow away from your windows so that you get that cool and refreshing breeze even during lousy weather.

The Benefits of In-Channel Window Visors

Now that you’ve decided to purchase a set of vent visors, you have an important decision to make—in-channel or seamless vent visors? Before you can make such a decision, let’s compare seamless vs. in-channel vent visors so you fully understand the differences.

Visors of the in-channel variety, such as the WeatherTech Vent Visor, boast an innovative mounting method. Rather than requiring tiresome drilling, taping or clipping, in-channel rain guards for cars fit firmly into the window channels of your vehicle. So, not only do they install easily, but they have a sleek, streamlined appearance.

The Benefits of Seamless Window Visors

Seamless vent visors, like the AVS Seamless Vent Visors, feature a different kind of installation. Rather than fitting into the channel of your window, they install at the edge, using automotive-grade 3M tape. So, you can simply stick them into place. While the installation is different than in-channel rain guards, the result is basically the same—a smooth, seamless finish and useful upgrade to your driving experience.

To bump up your vehicle’s protection and style to an even higher level, consider setting your ride up with bug deflectors as well. Bug deflectors come in a variety of styles to match your ride, from snazzy chrome to logo-embellished Also, all of our bug shields are designed to keep squadrons of Kamikaze bugs from splattering on the hood of your Chevy truck, SUV or other vehicle.
