The plastic mounts on the shade broke very quickly despite very careful operation. Autogeek gave me a hard time about the warranty saying I had to contact the manufacturer, who in turn told me to talk to autogeek. I finally got a replacement which broke again.
ProsCool idea, worked great for a while
ConsBuild quality. Warranty support

Have struggled with one screen retractable shade for my Honda Accord for months! What a piece of junk! Finally found what I was looking for on line and bought it. A bit expensive but worth every penny! I had a double screen years ago but this one even has retractible springs so, when unfastened, they snap open and stay put. Instructions are easy to follow and installation is a breeze. Trust me. I am a 76 year old broad. If I can do it, you're out of excuses.
ProsWell made. Easy installation.

This is my third set of Sun Shades and they all have been great. The second set snapped a vinyl cord but I used it for over 10 years and let it snap back into place a couple times.
ProsStores back out of the way.

Easy to Install and Effective
Very easy to affix to the windshield. I've used it for a week and it makes a big difference in the temperature of the car. It also looks better than any other sun shade I have seen.

All I have is a small, extended cab pickup (with only one fold-down seat in the back); so just enough room for me and my two boys. Behind my seat, is a storage compartment against the "wall" where my jack goes, and nothing on the floor, although I normally try to keep a cooler bag or two for grocery shopping there. Needless to say, i don't want a lot of extra stuff laying around in my truck, so this shade was PERFECT for me. I don't have to worry about moving it around and finding a place to keep it. It was super easy to install, and as long as you follow the directions (give the mounts 24 hours to adhere properly), you shouldn't have any issues. I've had this for a week or two now, and it's still holding just fine in this Louisiana heat/humidity. I love how quick and easy it is to use and then open again when I'm ready to leave. Definitely worth buying!
ProsEasy to install, Covers almost all of the windshield, Convenient, Easy to use

sliding window shades are really convenient!
I like this item a lot - it is perfect for covering the window and protecting the interior from the desert sun
ProsThey are really easy to pull over and velcro together, but the velcro is hard to take apart when you want to open them up!
Consyou have to make sure to stick the blinds far enough to the edge of the window or they will not evenly cover the window (they will arc away from the window and look like they are bending too far into the interior of the car

Consno way to fix a little plastic tab on the end of the retractable part.

Keep the Heat Out!
I have used Eclipse Sun Shades on my last three cars and they are always one of the first items I order after every car purchase. Having lived in Florida for many years, I can say that the Sun Shades were excellent at keeping the interior temperature down inside the car, reducing the fading of interior finishes and improving security for the car. I would highly recommend the Sun Shades to anyone who has a car and wants to extend the comfort and interior finishes.

Since I purchased my car I was searching in vain to find a sunscreen to fit. I went to the dealership. Then I saw your product in someone's window and got your online information.Although I had a friend install it for me after watching him I realized how easy it was and probably could have done it myself! Best shade available
ProsAlthough I had a friend install it for me after watching him I realized how easy it was and probably could have done it myself!
ConsMy fault really because I didn't understand your online image I failed to have it cut to fit around the rear view mirror. None the less the fit still works well

Best thing ever. No one likes the shedding of conventional sun shades or dealing with breaking your mirrors trying to keep the panels in place...
Easy to open, easy to close.
Be the envy of the parking lot, do you know how many people ask me "WTF IS THAT???" in excitement. I tell them all, honestly, im like a vegan about it.
I love it.
Installation was pretty easy, one foot did fly off at one point and I kinda just used some superglue on the tape and stuck it back to the windshield. Looks kinda bad up close but hey it worked.
ProsEasy to use
Easy to install
Cool looking and feeling ;)
ConsPeople be like, "Damn, whats that thing." And I feel obligated to tell them lol

No response to calls for help
Love the product except the glue released on a hot day. Can't seem to find decent adhesive meant for plastic mounts. I called them and no response. I'm not paying $15 for more of the same mounts.
ConsCleaned and mounted properly, but glue comes off.

Great Sun Shades
We have used these on 4 different cars and have really enjoyed having them. They help protect the dash and upholstery from the hot sun and keep the car so much cooler. The shades that meet in the middle - like these - are much easier to close and open than the one that is one long piece and fastens on one side or the other. Keep up the good work - this is a good product.

Awesome Retractable Sun Shade
This is the third retractable sun shade I have had over many years - the Arizona sun is hard on plastic. But it sure beats fishing in the back seat for the other kind, hitting people in the head as you bring it up front, and fiddling with it to get it in the window. I wouldn't bother with that kind. This retractable sun shade is so easy, cut to fit, and a necessity in Arizona.

I always use these blinds in the summer.
My husband installs these, but due to the shape of the windshield he couldn't get them
I may have to use something else when it gets hot.

Best shade ever.
This is my second car with this shade installed. It is very well made and very convenient to use and store. Installation is a bit tricky so make sure you read and understand the directions. You only get one chance to get it right because once you stick it on, it stays there.

Clean the widshield thoroughly prior to attaching the adhesive mounts.
I installed the shades in my 2010 Accord soon after I bought it in 2012. The installation was pretty straight forward and they have worked well. I get lazy and won't use the shades that you take down and roll up. One of the 4 adhesive mounting clips came off of the window and I am ordering a new set. The clips being available separately is also nice if you want to install them in another car. They also don't require you to cut or drill into the car. The shade is supplied with cleaning wipes but I would go a little further. Buy some 91% Isopropyl alcohol and use clean paper towels to thoroughly clean the inside windshield surface where you apply the adhesive mounts.
ProsVery convenient. Takes seconds to deploy. Great coverage.
ConsNone if you read the instructions and are patient during the installation.

Eclipse Retractable Windshield Sun Shade
I first started using the retractable windshield sun shade when my 1992 Buick Park Ave was new. Only a couple of years ago I had to replace them as the mechanism to retract the left side broke. Pretty good for 22 years in the desert sun.
In September of this year I ordered the sun shades for my new car, a 2014 Buick LaCROSSE. As my new Buick has lane change alert system in the windshield, it was necessary that they be customized. After I installed the shades, I discovered that the space allowed for the lane change alert system was cut about 3" too low, so some sun does come in, but it is only a small area.
In my opinion, these shades are a necessary part of the interior of an automobile here in the hot Nevada sun. They are easy to install and easy to operate. Much more convenient than the shades that have to be taken down and rolled up. We have them on both our vehicles.
ProsEasy to install
Easy to operate
They work to keep the interior of the car cooler
They pretty much last for the lifetime of the automobile
I have recommended them to friends and relatives

Retractable Windshield Sun Shade
I have had this windshield shade on my other automobile--but one side of this shade does not stay attached to the clips and each time you close it the shade falls off the clip the rest stays attached to the windshield. Not too happy with this shade.

I like the fact that you don't have to reach behind your seat to grab the sun shade, but the left side takes up some of the visibility of the windshield. At first I did not like it but I am getting used to it. When installing I did it perfectly, but you have to
be in a good frame of mind to make sure you line everything up. You really have to read the instructions several times and pay close attention to the details. If you do not like reading the instructions, I would not recommend this item. The reflectivity is average. My foil type sun shade with insulation for my other vehicle is much better. I have no idea how long the velcro will keep working properly, since I have only had this for one week.

So far so good!
I like this shade a lot. Have not used it much, haven't had to yet, but I am sure it will give me peace of mind as it protects my dash board. Thank you
