Chris Fix: How to Install Rain Guards and Bug Deflectors

What are rain guards?

Rain guards (also known as vent visors) are an easy DIY accessory to add to your vehicle. The rain guard will enable you to roll down your window partway while deflecting the rain. This provides a way for fresh air to enter through the windows and helps to vent heat out of your vehicle in the hot summer months.

What are bug deflectors?

Bug deflectors (also known as bug shields) work to deflect bugs and debris, bumping them up and over your windshield with the help of the wind while your vehicle is in motion.
