A well-designed bug deflector hood shield protects your vehicle in two ways: First, it shields the leading edge of your hood and fenders from stones and other debris borne by the wind or thrown up by other vehicles, keeping your hood and fenders free of dings, dents and chipped paint. Second, the lip of the shield redirects airflow enough to propel bugs and debris up and over your vehicle, instead of crashing and splattering into your windshield, preserving and maintaining your visibility and keeping your windshield free of chips and scratches. The Chrome Hood Shield’s high profile and wraparound design makes it one of the most effective shields you can buy because it excels at both tasks.
The Chrome Hood Shield will provide maximum protection and perfectly complement your truck, van, SUV, or crossover vehicle’s appearance. The thick OEM quality chrome plating will be a welcome styling enhancement that perfectly matches the rest of your vehicle’s chrome trim. This shield is custom designed to seamlessly match the contours of your hood and front fenders and be aerodynamically efficient. It's made of strong, rugged ABS plastic, which is impact, chemical and heat resistant, and widely used by the OEMs. ABS is tough and durable enough to withstand the elements and stay looking good, so you’ll get many years of style and protection. The Chrome Hood Shield installs simply and quickly with 3M double-sided tape and/or mechanical fasteners, depending on application.
Once installed, you’ll find that the included rubber bumpers will keep the shield from contacting the body, to protect the paint finish, and the off-the-hood design enables you to keep your vehicle clean and waxed easily. The Chrome Hood Shield is car wash safe; however automatic “brush-style” car washes should be avoided. Cleaning the shield is easy with soap and water, and cleaning solvents or other chemical products should not be used. The Chrome Hood Shield comes with everything required for installation, including hardware and detailed instructions, and it’s covered by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. The warranty applies to the original purchaser as long as he or she owns the vehicle on which the product is installed.
AVS® is the innovator of the auto Ventshade, first produced in 1935 to mount above a car window to keep rain out and let fresh air in. In testimony to its effectiveness, the Ventshade is still manufactured by AVS today, albeit in a much more modern form. The company also manufactures a wide range of other Ventvisor/side window deflectors along with hood/windshield protectors and vehicle styling/protective accessories. In 1998 AVS was acquired by prominent truck accessory manufacturer Lund International, and today is one of that company’s leading brands. AVS products are precision engineered and crafted from the finest materials right here in the USA.
