Bugflector™ Hood Shield by AVS®. Protect the leading edge of your hood from stones and other airborne debris and keep insects from splattering your windshield with the Bugflector™ Hood Shield. The Bugflector™ is made from tough, impact modified acrylic for long lasting durability, and its low-to-medium aerodynamic profile will complement your truck, van or SUV’s styling. Car wash safe and designed for easy cleaning, Bugflector® installation is simple and straightforward with 3M™ adhesive and/or mechanical fasteners.

  • Protects hood from dings and stone chips
  • Deflects airflow, directing bugs and debris up and over vehicle to protect windshield
  • High profile design for efficient protection and sleek, aerodynamic appearance
  • Custom designed for each application
  • Off the hood design for easy cleaning and waxing
  • Molded from tough, impact modified acrylic
  • Car wash safe

  • Includes all necessary mounting hardware and instructions
  • Backed by a limited lifetime warranty
  • Proudly made in the USA

A well-designed bug deflector hood shield protects your vehicle in two ways: First, it shields the leading edge of your hood from stones and other debris borne by the wind or thrown up by other vehicles, keeping your hood 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 Bugflector Hood Shield is one of the best-selling automotive products in North America because it’s so effective at both tasks.

Besides protection, the Bugflector’s low-to-medium aerodynamic profile and smoked finish will perfectly complement your truck, van or SUV’s appearance. The Bugflector is custom designed to perfectly match the contours of your hood and be aerodynamically efficient. It's made of rugged impact modified acrylic to resist wear and tear, 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 the off-the-hood design enables you to keep your vehicle clean and waxed easily.

The Bugflector 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 Bugflector 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.

Bug Deflector
The deflector's double side tape was on the outside, however it needed to be in the inside, awaiting the tape from CARiD.

Nice Bugflector
This bugflector was easy to install. All the holes matched up making the installation simple and easy. Good quality in general, but it only came with 4 screws, which is not enough, as for me. Reasonable price for this product.

Great Product!
Perfect fit, relatively easy to install, and looks great on the truck. Durability remains to be seen since we just installed the hood shield last week, but we had previous excellent experience with AVS products (the bug shield on our 2004 F150 has "weathered" the last 11 years with only minor blemishes.

Nice Looking Product
I am happy with the product but did not think the plastic push anchors were a good idea. Don't think they will last. Had a hard time getting them to anchor with the stress of the shield pushing against them.
