SPF 60 has nothing on the Dash Designs Original Car Sun Shade. Crafted from a highly reflective, pleated fabric, the sun shield protects your ride from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Direct sun light can cause cracks, warps and fading of your dashboard—cover up with the Dash Designs Original Car Sun Shade and keep your ride up to 60 degrees cooler.
This car shade installs easily with high-temp 3M tape and windshield mounting brackets. And, when it’s time to block the heat waves, simply pull the auto shade and latch into place. Two stainless steel, tension springs ensure a smooth motion across your windshield and an easy retraction.

I like the shade alot; however, one of the pieces that you attach to the window on the driver's side is missing so I haven't been able to enjoy the sun shade yet. However, I do plan on contacting Customer Service to see if the missing piece can be sent to me.

Product is awesome as far as sun blockage. The retractable feature seems to diminish the the longer it is streched across your dash. If it stays extended for more than a few hours it is difficult to get it to fully retract. It takes several attempts.

As we live in "rainy" Washington state, we haven't used our newest sun shade yet. Our last one was identical to this one and it finally broke. It was the most convenient sun shade we've every had. It kept the sun out...the car cooler and we loved it. Wish they would come up with an easy inexpensive solution for the back window.

This is the 2nd Sun Shade I bought from your company and love them. I had a piece break on the first one and you were kind enough to send me replacement pieces. I love your site and the free shipping is such a treat for us on a fixed income.

Fold up shades have always been a nuisance for me -- where do you keep them? How do you fold them up with out smacking your passenger in the face? Why do they always end up bending and falling down? Why can't somebody make a mountable window shade for my car? Turns out someone did! Easy to mount, easy to use. Just reach and pull and your shade is up. Lift and slide and it's put away. And it really keeps my car cool!

How is it removed? Does it leave any blemishes or are there any difficulties with removal?

The brackets are double face tape, so you will have to use a razor blade to scrape all the tape off. Not that hard.flag Accept Answer

how does the side of retractable shade attach, to the winshield or to the plastic side moulding? How does the receiver side attach, to the windshield or to the body side moulding?

We have one of these, it works pretty well. It attaches to the windshield with double face tape. It easily opens & closes (the pleates keep it well sittuated)& hooks onto the center hook ( for lack of a better term) on the opposite side. I recommend attaching it to the passenger side with the center hook on the driver side for the best driver visability. I am ordering another for my pickupflag Accept Answer
