What's the difference between in-channel and tape-on window visors?

In-channel window visors install within the window channel, while tape-on window visors install outside the window channel. The tape-on visors tape on to the painted part of your window frame.

The in-channel visors look more streamlined, and are the version that most people want. To most people the in-channel visors look better.

The tape-on applications usually cost a little bit less, and are less of a hassle to install than the in-channel visors. The in-channel visors can sometimes be a little tricky to install, especially with modern "auto-down" safety window mechanisms.

My window automatically rolls down when it hits my in-channel visor. Help!

This is a somewhat common problem with modern vehicles when installing an in-channel window visor.

Modern vehicles have a safety feature that automatically roll down the window when it detects a foreign object in it. This makes sense -- if you or your child sticks their hand or finger in the window, you wouldn't want the window to keep trying to roll up. That would be painful for your finger, and may break your window regulator motor! When it detects a foreign object, your window will automatically roll back down to free the object.

If your window is automatically rolling back down, this means it sees your in-channel vent visor as a foreign object. For safety reasons, it's automatically rolling back down.

This is normally an easy fix, but will require you to dig into your vehicle's owner's manual. Your vehicle should have a mechanism that will allow you to re-adjust the "stop" location on your window, so that it no longer sees the in-channel visor as a foreign object. Yo

Does a window visor really help cool the interior?

Yes, a window visor can definitely help cool the cabin. With a window visors, you'll be able to crack the windows an inch or two to let cool air in. The smoke-colored visor will also help deflect the sun - or rain - from getting into the vehicle while your windows are cracked.

This can help re-circulate air, or just let you get a nice breeze in your vehicle, without letting the blistering sun or rain in.

What colors do vent visors come in?

Almost all vent visors you see are a smoke color, either a medium or dark smoke. This is - by far - the most common color for a vent visor.

Some vehicles may have a chrome option available, if you're looking to match the chrome trim on your vehicle. We also have black and matte black options available for a select few vehicles.

To see if a chrome option is available for your vehicle, just select the year/make/model of your vehicle. You can then use the filters to narrow down by color.

Another option is to use a vehicle wrap and wrap the visors if you want a specific color. Be sure to first check with your local DMV to make sure this is legal to do in your state!
