The Best Wind Deflectors, Vent Visors & Rain Guards

The Best Wind Deflectors, Vent Visors & Rain Guards

It doesn’t matter if you call them window visors or rain guards, the car window wind deflectors you are seeking are available at NAPAonline. An in-channel wind deflector is designed to divert rain away from slightly opened windows, which typically draw moisture and wind inside the vehicle cabin. You can add rain visors or wind vent visors to your sporty sedan, hard-working pickup or deluxe SUV for a little outside ventilation even during a complete downpour. 

What Do Window Deflectors Do?

There are four main reasons why a vehicle owner chooses to customize their ride with a set of side window wind deflectors: a more refreshing ride, noise reduction, releasing trapped air and an attractive aerodynamic upgrade. Placing wind deflectors on cars is vital to cruising down the highway. Let the fresh air in without moisture or debris even on a windy, rainy day. Even a low-profile vent visor allows air in without the roaring, whistling effect of gusting wind.

The NAPA experts recommend that you install a set of car window deflectors to release trapped heat and humidity fogging up your glass, both while driving and when parked. If your vehicle often sits in the sun on a summer day, vent visors allow you to crack the window to let hot air escape without allowing in thieves, pests or pop-up showers. On the road, your SUV’s backseat and cargo area is filled with excited dogs, smelly teenage athletes, take-home food containers and wet swim gear. A set of four high-quality window deflectors allows you to move the odor out of the vehicle without letting in any more elements.

Finally, attractive rain guards (specifically designed to complement your vehicle) enhance the style of your ride. And, this sleek, streamlined upgrade is both an aesthetic and aerodynamic improvement, which means you get more miles out of each fill up or charge.

And, keep in mind, AVS vent visors and WeatherTech wind deflectors are the perfect additions for any hybrid or electric vehicle. 

If you are searching for side window deflectors, the NAPA experts recommend selecting a long-lasting, durable, shatter-proof product, typically made of scratch-proof, fade-resistant acrylic or polycarbonate material. Look for descriptions like “guaranteed not to bend, warp or crack.” Most visors and deflectors are offered with either a smokey tint treatment or matte black finish. One popular model is the EGR In-Channel Rain Guards, which is backed by a Lifetime Warranty. The easy, pop-in installation is confirmed by the great customer reviews!

Not only do these visors incorporate a flat design, but they also come in a range of color options, including silver, gray, white and black.

How to Install Window Deflectors on Your Vehicle

To make car window deflector installation as easy as possible, most products utilize a computer-engineered design for a seamless fit to your exact make and model. Most window deflectors are offered in either a two-piece front set or four-piece front and rear set. Whether you opt for tape-on sidewind deflectors (using the provided 3M adhesive tape) or snap-in rain guards (inserting directly into each window channel), your window deflector installation should not require any drilling or specialized hardware. This makes installing wind deflectors an easy afternoon project in your garage, driveway or parking lot. 

The NAPA experts are here to guide you through how to install window deflectors, but your deflector kit will include clear and easy-to-follow instructions. Start by cleaning and drying the window and window channel to remove any dirt, grime and moisture. If you are installing a tape-on wind deflector, clean off the door frame at the top and sides of the window.

To install in-channel wind deflectors, place the front end of the deflector flange on the top of the outer windowsill weatherstrip. Then slide the flange into the channel. It is important that the front edge is on the outer sill and not within your vehicle’s window well. Once the front end is in position, gently bend the deflector toward you. The rear end of the flange should slip into the rear vertical window channel. Work from front to back, tucking the flange into the window channel.
