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

The Bugflector II's high profile, wraparound aerodynamic design will provide full protection and will perfectly complement your truck, van, SUV, or crossover vehicle's appearance. The Bugflector II 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 the off-the-hood design enables you to keep your vehicle clean and waxed easily.

Cleaning the Bugflector II is easy with soap and water, and cleaning solvents or other chemical products should not be used. The Bugflector II 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.

Great Shield, Crummy Hardware!
AVS® 25956 - Bugflector II™ Dark Smoke Hood Shield
If you are installing one of these on a late model GM vehicle, do yourself a favor and don't even attempt to use the useless plastic hardware that AVS supplies. Go down to your local auto parts store and get a package of quality Dorman 1/4" push rivets. Once you have good fasteners, the installation will go smoothly. The hardware is the only reason I can't give this 5-stars...for the price of the kit, I shouldn't have to supply my own fasteners. The bug shield itself fits perfectly and looks good on my 2020 Silverado RST; the color of the plastic blends right in with the black-out kit!

AVS "Matte Black" Bug Deflector
AVS® - Bugflector II™ Dark Smoke Hood Shield

I normally do not write reviews but hope my review will save others from the same experience. I am not an auto parts installation specialist but I have installed no-drill hood shields on most vehicles I own. I chose this brand because I have had good luck with their products in the past and it was the most cost efficient. Product came with scratches on the shield itself that would wipe off (included) and the AVS sticker was partially peeled off (photo included). If I was smart I'd have sent it back but my wife's new car is black and I understand hood shields take abuse so I proceeded with the installation. Installation was straightforward enough but the inserts needed to secure the deflector to the car were miserable. They were extremely difficult to insert to full depth and two of the four twisted off. Another would not tighten all the way leaving one insert currently holding this shield in place (of four). This product was miserable from the moment it came out of the box and I am 100% this piece of crap is going to come loose in the near future and fly off the hood of my car.

I got this installed on my 2017 F150, but I had to get new hardware to make it work. If you go to AutoZone, and get some 1/4" nylon clips (part #479700) and trim screws (part #455770), it is MUCH easier to get this to work. You'll have to drill out 4 of the factory holes to 1/4", but if you aren't opposed to that, pop the new clips in after you drill out the holes, line up the deflector, and put the screws through the holes in the weatherstripping and deflector. They thread in those clips easily and securely. Once I found that method (someone on Amazon came up with this solution), I had it on in 45 minutes or so. Bug deflector itself is pretty good quality, but the hardware that comes with it is pretty much useless. Follow the above method and things will go much easier.

The hardware that comes with this is absolute JUNK. The plastic clips do NOT fit the pre-drilled holes in the hood, even completely tightened. Also, the tabs on the bug shield itself are too long and do not properly fit the hood. Instructions are printed in a tiny font that is very difficult to read. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS.

Very Easy Installation And Very Attractive Result.
AVS® - Bugflector II™ Dark Smoke Hood Shield
I went at it with my drill thinking I'd at least have to 'redesign' a few holes on the deflector but to my pleasant surprise everything was dead-nut. Highly recommended.

Seems well-made and was fairly easy to install. So far, so good.

Arrived next day after ordering. Perfect fit - instructions very clear, though I chose not to use the rubber bumpers for now. I will wait and see how it performs/flexes in the wind and decide later. Installation took no more than 10 minutes. I did not know this, but AVS is part of Lund, which has more expensive deflectors. This has same warranty as other Lund products. Should this get damaged, I will defintiely buy another.
