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.
