Product Details

Shade™ Retractable Sun Shade by Dash Designs®. Dramatically reduce interior temperatures in your car with the Shade. With one-handed operation, it's so easy to use, you'll use it every time you park in the sun. It's simple to install: no tools necessary.


  • Retracts into 1.5” housing on passenger-side A-pillar
  • Simple and quick installation with easy instructions
  • Made with highly-reflective fabric that shields your vehicle from harmful UV rays
  • No folding or rolling
  • Uses 2 constant-tension stainless steel springs
  • Reflective Metallized fabric blocks 99.5% of UV and 85% of the total energy from sunlight
  • Lowers peak interior temperatures by 50°F
  • Made in the USA

Sure, roll-up sunscreens work great. But only when you use them, and who can be bothered with folding or rolling them up, finding a place to stow them where they won’t get stepped on or damaged. They’re a pain, frankly. The Sun Shade is painless to use. Just reach across the dash with your right hand, grab the edge of the metalized fabric screen, and pull it over to the driver’s side A-pillar. It will then block 85% of the heat and 100% of the UV rays. You’ll reduce the temperature of the dash itself by as much as 50°F, and the temperature of the driver’s seat by 20°F. When it’s time to leave, just unhook the Shade from the clip, and let it retract smoothly into the housing. Installation takes 5 minutes: just stick the clips to the inside of the windshield with durable 3M foam tape, and hang the Shade on the hooks. With a pair of stainless steel springs, the Shade pulls out and retracts smoothly every time. The housing on the passenger side A-pillar is only 1.5” thick, so it blends right in and doesn’t block your vision.

Since 1983, Dash Designs®, in Tempe, Arizona, has been a leading manufacturer of Custom Fabric Auto Accessories.

I love the way it looks and the best part is retractable and I don’t have to be putting it on and off

Retractable Sun Shade Is a Lifesaver!
Dash Designs® - Shade™ Retractable Sun Shade
In the intense heat we're having in Colorado, this Sun Shade is a must-have. It makes a huge difference in the temperature of my car. I have had many compliments on it from passengers. I also use it in the winter because our sun is so strong. I have bought this item for myself, my 85-year-old sister and other family members. I highly recommend it.

Easy Peasy!!
Dash Designs® - Shade™ Retractable Sun Shade
Easy Peasy!! No struggling or wrestling with those obnoxious window shades that take up your back seat & are such a pain in the butt to put in your window. It's easy to attach to your windshield and so easy to close & open when using. Does the job of keeping the blazing sun & heat at bay. I live in Vegas so this is heaven-sent for me!! I highly recommend it. If they say they don't have your exact car, get one close to your car's model, it will work (measure to get as close as possible)

I've had other sun shades before. In 2011 I found Dash Designs. I had it on my 98 Astro van and loved it. I just got my 2020 4 runner and knew I had to get one for it too. The good thing about this unit is that you don't have to look for it. It's always right there. No folding anything up and putting it in the back. Just reach across and it's there.

Dash Designs® - Shade™ Retractable Sun Shade
This is the second shade we've ordered for our pick-up. It is a God-send when you live in a dry, desert area, where the temps can be anywhere from 90- 108 degrees. It especially makes a difference when you're a farmer, and you've had your vehicle out in the sun all day in those temperatures. It's SO much cooler inside when you're needing to use your pick-up!!!

This retractable shade was a life saver. We live in a arid, dry, desert area of Washington State. The temperatures can get up to 108 degrees. The average summer temp. can be brutal from May through September. I can honestly say I probably depend on the shade 8 months of the year. It makes such a difference in the temperature inside of your car. And, you don't have to furiously deal with a flopsy turn every-which way shade!!!! We gave this car to our daughter and bought a 2019 Lexus RHX. I immediately came back to see that no one carried the same shade for our new SUV, and was told that no other year would work! I'm happy to say that you now carry the same type of shade for my new car. I can't wait!!!

Easy to put on, easy to slide cross the windshield. Holds up pretty good. I really like it.

This is my favorite car shade. It is hidden from view and blends into frame of car. Easy to pull out and retract and I never have to deal with trying to fold up and store a shade inside my car!

I had this car shade in my previous car and it is a joy that I installed it in my new car. It beats the standard fold up and it is so easy to use. It does keep the sun from heating up the interior.

Perfect fit on my husbands truck. This is our fourth purchase and we are never disappointed! Everyone thinks they are stock. We are in Florida and a shade is a must.
