Thread: Window Vents

  1. #1

    Default Window Vents

    is there an advantage of having the window vents that are in channel compared to the ones that are of the stick on variety?

    I think they're mosted called Vent Visors around here. I think the in-channel ones offer some advantages overall.

    I put the ones that just go on with double sided tape on my dads titan for his birthday and he loves them. He smokes and it rains alot here so he hasn't had any problems. Also when he would open the window in the morning the dew would drip all over the controls, now it goes straigt down the side of the truck.

    the main problem with the stick on ones is that they don't last as long with the original adhesive, the in channel ones have constant pressure on them from the window pushing against them, but the stick on ones are in the weather and don't have that pressure, go for the inchannel ones.
