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 Carflector Hood Shield is one of the best-selling automotive products in North America because it’s so effective at both tasks.

The Carflector is the low profile version of the AVS Bugflector II, intended for cars and SUVs. It’s designed for those who want a sleeker, more aerodynamic appearance while still gaining protection from bugs, stones and debris. The Carflector is custom designed to perfectly match the contours of your hood and front fenders and be aerodynamically efficient. It's made of rugged impact modified acrylic which is virtually indestructible, so you’ll get many years of protection, and 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 if cleaning is necessary the shield can be easily removed.

The dark smoke finish of the Carflector will make it an attractive addition to your vehicle. It’s 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 Carflector 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.

This is the same deflector that goes on a corolla. it needs to be about 6 inches longer for a Camry. The fasteners are a bi to small for the holes in the hood. I had to add plastic tape to tighten them. the "bump ons" are not needed. I installed the deflector mainly because it was easier than going thru the return process and eating the shipping charge.

The part is just what it says it is, a bug deflector for my 2014 Subaru Forester. It looks good, is easy to install and will protect my hood from dings. It is really worth it and the shipping was fast and all questions have been answered quickly. Great customer support.

The reflector is very easy to install. Also it looks beautiful on my car. Few days after installation I went to a car wash and the reflector went through without any damage.

I really liked the way it looked on my "Attitude Black Metallic" Camry. It gave it an aggressive look and seems to send wind and debris over the windshield.

Added no noise. Less bugs hit my windshield. Easy to install. I just wish I closed the hood before I peeled off the double sided tape. Make sure you check it is centered. The centering screws work but you need to make sure the slight amount of play is even. Otherwise you will end up with one side slightly over the headlight. Not a big deal but I had to put a rubber stopper on my headlight where there is deflector contact and not on the other. I'll fix it eventually when my OCD drives me crazy enough. WD40 will remove double sided tape. My favorite thing about this is when people drive too close behind me, I spray my wiper fluid and it mists onto their window. Now with the added deflecting property, it really squirts them. Love mine. Love bugs here in Florida s*ck and eat paint. I was cleaning my car twice a week.
