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.

  • Easy Installation

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.

      Purchased for my 2012 Expedition. Supposed to be correct fit but the passenger side wiper would not lay flat on the door end of the windshield and left an area untouched. Had to return and get original equipment wipers

            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.

                      Have had them for about a month and so far they deliver quiet wiping action that is 99% streak free. Stays in contact with windshield at highway and around town speeds. Beam construction means that snow does not build up deforming the blade.

                              I've been using this product on both a 2011 Ford F-250 6.7L King Ranch and on a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit. This wiper has performed well for approximately a year to when I replace wipers just before winter as a matter of routine.

                              The installation is extremely simple; just slide the arm hook over the clip and then slide it back until you feel a positive "click" when the lock engages. A slight tug in the opposite direction should confirm that the wiper is locked on the wiper arm.

                              I've been extremely pleased with this line of products for many years, as I've used them on my BMW M3s, BMW 325, and Yukon Denali.

                                  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.
