About

I would like to share a reality about windshield covers for snow and ice. They are pretty much all the same, everything from fabric to cardboard, or some type of plastic cover.  But at the end of the day, they're all the same, just a cover, with no performance. With today's technology, performance is the name of the game. You want something fast and easy to install in any condition, especially windy conditions. And it should look good too.  You're putting it on one a your biggest investments, your car.

Hello my name is Les Robbins, the creator and one of the partners for Snow Guard, the world's most advanced windshield cover ever created to protect your vehicle's windshield against snow, ice, frost and even freezing rain. Our patented technology is the only windshield cover of its kind, that is a duel layer of nylon coated material, with flexible gloves and a wire-frame inner structure to give it stability for easy installation, even in the windiest conditions. The Snow Guard's flexible gloves protect your side view mirrors from the freezing elements and allows for automatic positioning on your windshield. There is no cover like the Snow Guard!

I am confident, It's the best anti-scraping device you'll ever find for your car's windshield.

Windshield covers have been around a long time, there's everything from bolts on the sides of your windshield to suction cups, magnets, tie downs, as well as straps inside your car.  This product is like no other cover, and has flexible gloves for your mirrors that actually holds the Snow Guard in place so well that, in some cases, you don't even need the wind or security straps.  It also depends on the type of vehicle.

All the covers on the market today are a single layer of material and have no inner structure and are cheap to produce. Yet you can spend anywhere from $10 to $100 on one and they're all non-performance-based products.

Anti-fogging

Our dual layer of material gives more insulation from the freezing elements, which helps to eliminate the fogging of the interior of your windshield and for easier removal in extreme temperatures. The Snow Guard has no equal!

Easy installation in high wind conditions

Between the dual layers of material, lies two metal frames, which allows for it to fold up to a 10" circle and open instantly to full position. This also allows the Snow Guard to be easily installed in windy conditions, because it stays structurally sturdy as you install it on your windshield, rather than having it fly around like a flag in the wind.

Universal fit

Another great advantage to the Snow Guard over any other cover, is its flexible gloves that have built-in elastic. This gives Snow Guard the ability to adjust itself on your windshield to provide a good fit, as well as the ability to have a universal fit for most vehicles with standard size mirrors.

Fastest cover in the West

 Snow Guard takes only 30 seconds or less to install and even less to remove.

5 star rating

We managed a test launch of 900 pieces on Amazon in November and December of 2012 and sold out in a short period of time. The results were, over 95% of the customers gave Snow Guard a 5 Star rating.

Test market reviews:

Excellent,

By Rp*ger_Lsdge

I was at Walmart looking at the winter car products and saw a windshieldcover there. Intrigued by the concept, but I didn't buy one. After some thought, I went back hoping to get one but they were all gone. So I hopped on Amazon and discovered many different manufacturers of windshield covers. It was difficult to choose one. what I definitely did not want to deal with is the locking strap that you have to feed inside the car through the front doors. My car sits in a parking lot all night at work and I just want to get in my car and go home in the morning without scraping the windshield. If it's a hassle to put on and take off I know I won't use it since the whole point for me is saving time. I chose the Snow Guard because you can just put the pockets around the side view mirrors and you're done.Yeah, there's a short strap at the top for the doors but I think it's just for security, so the cover doesn't get stolen. It's not necessary to just keep the cover on the car. I've been using it for two weeks and will continue using it because it works great at keeping frost off the windshield. The inside of the windshield doesn't even fog up anymore.

Fits smaller to bigger vehicles

By LRB                                                                                                  Verified Purchase

I originally purchased this snow guard for my Acura RSX and its easy to put on and take off. I really like the mirror covers. I recently bought an Acura RDX and it fits just a bit more snug, since it is a bigger vehicle, but still works great. I would recommend this product for anyone who parks their car out

Pretty nice windshield cover.

By Mark D. Schnittman                                                                      Verified Purchase

I purchased this for my 2011 Mazda 3, which isn't currently being parked in my garage overnight. The cover is well made, and comes with a handy zippered pouch to keep it stored in. It doesn't cover the entire windshield on my car due to it's height, but it does fit well, and the gloves for the side mirrors are awesome. This will definitely be a time-saver for me in the morning, as I have to get up pretty early as it is, and not having to worry about visibility issues are worth the money to me. Compared to others that I've seen, this looks the best -- due to the construction and the integrated mirror covers. Recommended.

Snow Guard Windshield Cover

By Robert M. Zarinelli                                                                      Verified Purchase

This product works really well. First snow of 2012 today. Placed snow guard on last night with very easy effort. Came out this morning, took snow guard off with no effort, shook off and put in car and drove away. This product is well made, easy to put on, easy to take off. Shake off snow and put away and you are ready to go. I do not believe you will be disappointed.

Perfect Snow Guard

By Karbearon

I love the cover, it does what its designed to do. Sturdy material and has endured strong winds here in PA. Easy to wipe clean and store inside the trunk.

Top of the line product.

By NotTheDron                                                                                Verified Purchase

Works fine very flexible with a profession finish. Easy on & Easy off when its cold is an important factor for me.

Special Thank's to our Sponsors!

Smart Phone Tag
Smart Phone Tag

And as an added bonus, we thought to do something special for our sponsors.  There will be a tag on this special edition of Snow Guard that will have a code on it, that you can scan with your smart phone and it will take you to our website's interactive sponsor page, where there will be two videos. The first one thanking you for being our sponsor and supporting our product. The second one is "The Making of Snow Guard". This video will take you on a journey through the factory of what it took to actually make this product. This is only available to our sponsors and will be cool to show your family and friends, that you helped bring this product to life.

And this is why we need you. This product is all handmade, of the highest quality materials and is very costly to manufacture, because of the inner working parts. It weighs nearly 2.5 lbs., where most covers typically weigh less than 1 lb. The Snow Guard is heavy-duty and in a class of its own.

Kickstarter sponsors get this great product for a pledge of only $65 USD and even less, if you're one the Earlybird shoppers.  We have a manufacturer in place and are ready to go.  We just need to know how many to make.

If you choose our product, please tell your family and friends through all your social media, so they can have an opportunity to purchase this great product at such a wonderful price.  Thank you for checking us out on Kickstarter and have a great day!

Les Robbins 

Risks and challenges

Like all projects, there is a certain amount of risk. We believe the risk is minimal, because we manufactured this product successfully for the 2012 test market launch on Amazon.com. We filled and shipped 900 orders for Amazon and we are confident that we can provide the same great customer service for our sponsors. The only obstacles we could possibly foresee, if any, would be in production, shipping or US Customs delays. We will be in direct contact with the manufacturer and getting weekly updates on their progress, as well as final inspection before delivery. We don't anticipate any delays, but rest assured, after the funding of Kickstarter, we will keep you posted from the beginning to completion and everything in-between.
