Check Vehicle Fit

Rain-X Latitude Windshield Wiper Blades offer great visibility in rain, sleet and snow. Use on either originally-installed standard or curved-style Windshield Wiper Blades. The Rain-X Latitude® blade is sold with a preinstalled small j-hook adapter and contains multi-adapter for side pin, large j-hook and bayonet windshield wiper blade arms.

Rain-X Latitude Windshield Wiper Blades feature a contoured design that applies even pressure along the entire windshield wiper blade length. The windshield wiper blade is made of specially blended graphite coated rubber that delivers a smooth, clean, chatter-free wipe with each pass of the wiper blade. WIth a built-in aerodynamic spoiler, drag, noise, and wind lift are significantly reduced.

The ice resistant frame helps to prevent snow and ice build-up by eliminating exposed metal components. The rubber-encased substructure helps to increase wiper flexibility and adherence to the windshield in harsh conditions.

Product Features:
  • Easy Installation
  • High-Performance Wipe
  • Ice Resistant Frame

I bought two of these on sale, and I had read some reviews about the wiper not making contact with the glass surface...this is actually die to the wiper arm tension not being strong enough to hold the wiper blade down. On my Avalanche the driverside was fine but the passenger side didn't push the blade down all the way. You either need to adjust the tension on the wiper arm spring or replace the arm itself. So its not the wiper blade itself they are made very well and its about a 20$ fix to replace the wiper arm.

Both blades wipe well, but the attaching hardware on the 22-inch blade fell apart as I cleaned the windshield at a gas stop, and how well it will stay together in the future is questionable. One weak item or poor engineering? Time will tell.

      I needed to Replace only One as it was squeaking .
      When I have to Replace both of them, I'll go to a Bosch Blade. I Don't like the holes, I have to look at where they attach to the Wiper arm

              I only buy Rain X windshield wiper blades for all of our vehicles. My oldest daughter is 23 years old and she no longer lives at home, but I still make sure to buy Rain X wiper blades for her car whenever I purchase replacement wiper blades for my own vehicles. I gave a set to my father-in-law last year as a gift for Father's Day and he loved them so much that he will only buy Rain X wiper blades. The quality and performance of these wiper blades make them well worth the slightly higher purchase price of most other brands.

                  Installed in mid December, rubber became loose from frame end of January.No harsh weather, just plain ol'e rain. Installed Bosch Icon on one car, Rain-X on the other. Guess what I'm replacing the Rain-X with?

                                Hi Jo! Good question! In general the Rain X latitude is good to use in snow & ice conditions. The Weatherbeater is an ideal part for rainy climate. Both are equally good in normal climatic conditions.

                              what blade size do I need for the left side. All I see is for the right side. I think they are different sizes for each side.
                              Thanks,
                              Jake

                              Will this product work for the front right side of the vehicle? If not, I don't see where to purchase the blade for the right side.
