Bug Shields, also known as bug deflectors, hood deflectors or wind deflectors, are attached at the front of your car, truck or SUV hood to help prevent bugs from smashing into your windshield, or “deflect” them away.  They can also keep bugs, rocks or other road debris from damaging the front of your hood.  Most bug shields are made from tough, high-strength plastic material. 

One of the best known bug shields in the automotive aftermarket industry is the Interceptor Bug Shield by Lund.  The Lund name is synonymous with high quality accessories for nearly every make and model of vehicle on the road today, and the Interceptor Bug Shield by Lund is no exception.

The Interceptor Bug Shield by Lund is made from a polycarbonate material that makes it lightweight, yet super strong.  It is a full height, wrap-around style that gives your car, truck or SUV maximum protection for the hood, fender and windshield.  It mounts slightly away from the hood, making it really easy for you to clean the portion of the hood behind the bug shield.  Most applications require no drilling, although some vehicles will require some minor drilling with small sheet metal screws to install their bug shield.

The Interceptor Bug Shield is available in a dark smoke finish, or in a clear finish which can be painted to match your vehicle’s color.  You can also get a set of Auto Ventshade Ventvisors (part of the Lund family of automotive products) to complete the look of your vehicle.  These products can add style, great looks, and added value to your vehicle for many years to come!

Want to add a touch of elegance to your car, truck or SUV, while allowing some fresh air into your vehicle on a rainy day?  Try a Window Visor!

Window Visors, which are also referred to as Rain Guards, Weather Guards, and Window Deflectors, have come a long way since they first hit the market with their “tape-on” design to the outer window channel. (These designs are somewhat notorious for falling off after a year or two)  Putco’s Element Chrome Window Visors do not tape on to the outside of your window, they actually fit IN your window channel….just “pop” them into place and you’re all set. They’re nice and secure in the window channel, so you never have to worry about them falling off on a windy day as you’re driving down the interstate.

The Element Chrome Window Visors are made from automobile grade ABS plastic and feature a triple chrome plated finish for a sleek look. They are also an injection-molded design for a precise fit to your vehicle.  They are virtually unbreakable and are made to perfectly match OEM chrome. What’s more is the Limited Lifetime Warranty that Putco backs them with. You can’t go wrong with that.

If you like the dark “smoke” look, Putco also has a Tinted Element Window Visor.  Like the Element Chrome visor, it is also made of injection-molded ABS plastic, and features a beaded edge to move moisture away from your window.  Both window visors are custom-made to fit specific vehicles, to ensure a perfect fit every time.  Each style comes in a 2 piece or 4 piece set.

Not only do they have great features and a great warranty….the price cannot be beat. Pick a set up today as a gift for that “hard to buy for” friend or family member.  Or better yet, pick up a set for yourself– you’ll be glad you did.
