My husband was shocked to see that I had installed the shades. Very easy and fast to do.
The only thing to watch is my toddler did push the shade and it flew out the window as we were driving. I was able to go around and pick up and no damage occurred to shade.
I would really love to see this design be applied to a front windscreen protector. I loathe the ones currently on the market and I hope in the future SnapShades will extend their product range to include these too.
It was so easy to install and came so quickly. Product is amazing and my little one who would complain about the morning sun whilst driving to school is super happy not to have the sun in his eyes and can continue to read his books easily on his way. They arrived so quickly, I will purchase again if I ever require more.
Worth every penny
The shades came within 2 business days- COVID delay? Nah. Very easy to use, looks great and kept the bugs out at night while sleeping in the converted suv. I highly recommend these shades if you’ve converted a van or suv and want air movement with no insects.
Simple, and easy to use
Snap shades are the best car window shades out there. Super simple to install, and aren’t ugly like those ‘sock’ style ones. The shade covers all of the window including the quarter corner. My only criticism is that they were slightly too short ( by about 5mm) on my Mazda 3. I couldn’t poke the bottom into the rubber. However, the magnets are strong, and I have no issue with the operation of the shades.
I don’t usually buy things that are continually advertised at me when im online, I like to do my research!
We have an 11month old baby and the shades I bought from baby bunting were pretty useless, i kept seeing snap shades adds popping up and in a moment of weakness made the purchase. Wasn't really expecting that much, but when I received them and put them in the car, wow! I have a new Pajero and i got the set that fit 2nd row and 3rd row, they fit perfectly and i can open the windows
Even better than expected!
I watched the videos of them fitting perfectly and the car driving with windows down and the shades just holding on with magnets. I was very skeptical but ordered anyway. Blown away at just how good they are. They fit perfectly in my Mazda CX-5 and do hold on. I drove with all the windows down to test it and they just stay there. Awesome product!
Even better than I imagined! Both kiddies fell asleep on the first drive because it was so dark and cosy. I enjoyed my quiet drive & didn’t have to worry about the harsh Aussie sun burning my little precious ones. Have already recommended them to multiple friends and family.
So much better than the old shades where they go over the windows. Great shade from the sun, looks like my back windows have the dark tint. Very stylish & would recommend to family & friends. Easy to install.

These shades are great bought a set for our Pajero so easy to install and more effective then those you buy from auto shop. Just bought a set for our Kia carnival and they were easy to install and cover the whole of windows. Would highly recommend getting a set of snap shades.
Questions & Answers
Is it normal that I can’t see out my the back right passenger window (behind driver side) when these are installed?
I now a have a huge blind spot that I’m sure is not safe and wondering if it’s also illegal.

Hi Alicia, that is an excellent question.
You will need to install the shades in the correct direction as the weave of the material is direction hence there will be a left and a right shade for your car. On top of that, there is always going to be a reduction of vision while using a shade. There is a ratio for protection and vision and we chose 84.6% as it needs to provide sufficient protection or there isn't really a point of a shade. Factors that change vision is the angle you sit at, the design of the vehicle, the height of the driver, the weather, window tinting etc.
Car window shades are not illegal as window sox have been around since 1988, we have refined the installation and increased visibility of an existing product on the market.
Unlike other companies, we provide 30 days return policy so that customers can test the shades out. If they are too dark for you liking and you are within the 30 days return period, please contact us with your order number to arrange a refund.
Hi! I have some questions before purchasing your product.
1. Will the magnet damage the painting? Since it’s not a fridge magnet, the car vibrates all the time when driving.
2. Is it possible to just purchase 1 instead of 2?

Hi Erika, the magnets on the shades are covered by fabric so there will be no direct contact of the magnets to the paint. We currently only sell Snap Shades in pairs. Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Snap Shades Team.
On my car the there is tape on 1 side of the magnets, which is stuck to door frame on the bottom section which is leather on my car and top is metal. Tape similar to 3M double sided. Magnet used to connect bracket/clip to actual sunshade. This allows you to take sunshade out when not required very easily.
