Description
Delivery
Why us?
Driving into direct sun can be very dangerous, especially when the sun is low in the sky. The Sun Zapper fits onto any sun visor (over 28cm wide) and reduces glare and reflections, without impairing vision. When not in use, the 2-way clips allow the Sun Zapper to clip up behind the visor out of the way. Removes for easy cleaning. Shatterproof.

Suitable for sun visors over 28cm wide.

A good idea, but.......
Poor design and manufacture lets it down. Because the clips are made of plastic, the thickness and addition of the reinforcing makes them bulky. As a result, the car sun visor, in its stowed position is lower. In a car with low headroom (Volvo V40 in my case) the razor sharp corners of the plastic clips is far too close to my bald head, and incautious movement has resulted in painful damage to my scalp. Ideally, the clips would be metal and thus of a much smaller profile keeping the visor closer to its normal position. Otherwise, redesigning the mould for the clips to have rounded edges would at least reduce the potential for injury. The optical quality of the visor makes it risky to use.

As, having thrown the box away, I can't return it, it is sitting on the back seat awaiting recycling. Definitely a bad buy.

Does the job
I agree with one comment that it would be nice to buy the visors as a pair.

My hinges don't squeak so I'm not sure when these other reviews were written.

There can be the odd blind spot for the odd second but overall I have no problem using this whilst driving.

Solution to a problem.
I discovered a problem with varifocal glasses when driving toward setting sun. Like others I am too short for the standard visor so instinctively tilt my head back when dazzled but found myself looking through the 'reading' part of my specs. Bought this on a friend's recommendation. Have yet to test it. Not enough sun!

Great idea, but disappointing
The product is a great idea and it fitted well in both our cars. The operation was very straightforward. However it is let down by two significant issues that will probably result in it eventually being discarded. The plastic screen is not optically neutral, resulting in a disconcerting distorted view of the road ahead. The other problem that I found was that the screen is very vulnerable to scratches from fingernails, and from contact with the sliding secondary panel. Cheap materials?

Bought one of these about 3 weeks ago and now buying a second one. They are absoutely superb at cutting out glare from the sun and the shine on the road when the winter sun is low. Second is for passenger so road signs are easily read. Should be a run on these as all our friends and family are keen to get one having seen this.

Very disappointed in this product
I have a lot of trouble coping with the glare of the sun so I had great hopes that this would be the answer to my problems. It wasn't.
Tried to use the device several times but always had to remove it from the car. The shade has two shades to it, the upper one is fairly light in colour and the lower one is much darker. I found the lower one, i.e. thje one through which any normally sized person would look, to be too dark for me to see the road clearly. In addition, there is a gap between the two shades which is not that great but it always seemed to be directly between my eye and the sun so the only way I could have used it at all would have been to duck my head down when the sun was in that position.

Stunning Sun Visor
Having read previous reviewers comments, I was a little concerned about buying this item. However, No worries. Taking on board the fact that people reckon it is noisy when opening and positioning, I would have to agree but, as to being flimsy, I disagree, it is the nature of the type of acrylic used.
All in all a stunning piece of equipment and an asset to any cars visor.
You never know, might just save your life with the low winter sun able to blind you and, for the price, would rather save my life than worry about it breaking.

My smaller-still grandson also loves it, as he no longer needs to wear a hat when out with Grandad, my sister-in-law thought it was a brilliant idea (another shorty!) so I have been asked to 'get me one'.

Noisy Sun Visor
Being a short person, I sometimes find regular sun visors do not come down far enough to shield my eyes in low sun, so I bought this to give me more options. On unpacking the visor, I felt sure I would break it straight away. The plastic is of a very hard brittle-looking kind with integral 'hinges' which make an alarming crack when you move them. However, it does seem strong enough, and you get used to the noisy action. Next I found the clip spacing, though designed to fit any car, did not really fit on my Corsa, but I have managed to wedge them in, just. I can't really use the main car visor now with this additional one fitted, but that's okay. I like the option to bring down a further flap for really low sun conditions. So, after initial disappointment, I will say I am reasonably happy with this product, the light filtering is comfortable and I would recommend it for use in a larger car than mine.

My convertible has a very sloping windscreen and so the visor had to be pushed way forward to touch it. This meant it was not doing what it was intended to do, keep the sun from my eyes. If simply pulled down to be in front of my face, it was touching the steering wheel. I agree it seemed very brittle and inflexible and think it would easily break. I did not keep the product for these reasons.
