Returns, Shipping & Warranty
Snap Shades is a mesh-type shade, this allows you to see through the mesh. However, the visibility is not comparable as a window without one.
Please ensure that your blind spot is visible while driving and comply to your local laws and regulations.
During clear sunny days, vision looking into the vehicle from the outside is reduced, increasing privacy but you can still see through it.
We recommend to remove the shades at night. Please check with your local authority/laws on the legality of temporary sun mesh sun shades like Snap Shades.
Yes and No. Each Snap Shade will attach different to each vehicle, some are more suited for windows down than others. Thus, we do not recommend windows to be wound fully down when the vehicle is in motion. It also depends on the speed you are going and the environment you are in. As a rule of thumb, the windows should only be open 50%, travelling up to 30 mph.
Please ensure that when you open the window that it does not automatically open fully and only open the window while stationary.
Snap Shades will not provide free replacements for loss of your purchase. Please contact us to purchase a single replacement, shipping costs apply.
If you vehicle does not have any exposed metal around the car frame for the Snap Shade to attached to, you will need the magnetic mounts (magnets do not stick to aluminum). These mounts will be provided along with your purchase for free. In the product description and name there will be an asterisk (*) , this indicates whether your model/make will require the magnetic mounts.
Snap shades are made of high quality memory metal in the frame, with high strength magnets embedded in. The mesh is a UV resistance polyester material, which is also designed to reduce the heat from the sun.
We do not use PVC, ABS or any flame retardants in our products.
We expect fair wear and tear over time. However, as Snap Shades are installed on the inside of a vehicle, they are less likely to stretch, fade, become brittle and tear due to the sun, rain and wind.
We provide a one year warranty on workmanship and fading.
