TRICO is a major OEM supplier of high-class windshield wipers, wiper blades, and wiper systems both for aftermarket consumers and OE manufacturers. A subsidiary of cooling system and radiator cap leader Stant, TRICO has been manufacturing plants on five continents. Not content to make the best wiper blades on the market, TRICO’s unending innovation continues to make it easier for drivers to see where they are going when the weather is bad.
The principle of a wiper blade is simple: sweep a rubber blade over the windshield glass periodically to squeegee water, snow, sleet, or mud off, allowing the drivers to see everything everything behind them. The problem is to do so at high speeds, when the windshield glass has a steep compound curve, after the rubber blade bakes in the sun at rest for a year or more, and inexpensively.
When you buy a TRICO® Exact Fit™ blade, it doesn’t come with an assortment of adapters in the box to allow you to make it fit your wiper arm. Exact Fit means just that: it fits exactly and is installed in seconds without any confusion or fumbling. In fact, no other wiper manufacturer makes windshield wipers to fit more vehicles than TRICO®. From an Exact Fit™ blade that replicates the appearance and function of your traditional blade, TRICO® offers choices.
Many newer cars use a beam-style blade, which uses a long stainless steel beam, precurved to your windshield, to keep the rubber blade on the glass. And TRICO® may well have been the supplier who made the original blade on your car for the manufacturer. If you live where it snows, you may well have had to pull over to clear ice out of the wiper’s structure. When ice locks up the small claws that grip the blade, the blade can’t articulate over the curved surface of the glass, leaving streaks where the blade doesn’t touch. By the time it gets that bad, the only recourse you have is to get out and manually clear the blade, or wait until it gets warm out. TRICO® Ice™ blades use armor to keep ice out of the blade, keeping your windshield clear.

Yes you will spend a little more now but save in the long run. These wipers last longer than you normal or standard blades and you don't have to replace them as much. Great Product!!!

I really did not know what type of windshield wipers to get for my Range Rover. But in seconds after contacting you, I had the correct wipers on the way. Great service. I will always contact you for any of my car needs. Thanks. BW

Product looks and works like an Acura factory part. Found it easily on the CARiD website, it showed up at my front door two days later and installation was a snap. Now I can see out of my rear view window when it rains!

Unlike driver side, this side did not adapt to windshield surface as well. Needed some additional twisting of the arm blade to make product work as described. Once modified, it worked well. Cleared water away cleanly and minimal drag or noise.

I purchased Trico Exact-Fit blades for one vehicle so far and they work fine. Perfect match so they were easy to replace, and they work really good. So far, I cannot tell any difference in performance compared to the OEM part.

I was able to remove my old original rear wiper and install this wiper with ease thanks to the provided instructions on the back of the packaging. Item is nearly identical to the factory wiper. Works like a charm.
