About The Invention

Introducing the Sun Shutter™

Keeping your car from becoming an oven when left in the sun has been a age-old problem. In most states you aren’t allowed to tint the windshield which means using clumsy cardboard or foil shades to block the sun’s rays. Not only are these awkward to put up but they take valuable space when not in use.

The answer is the Sun Shutter™! This innovative product is built into the side window frames and is activated with a button on the dash or key fob. The side panels open up and the shutters guide out along a built-in rail. Each blade is connected together in an accordion fashion with a pin along the button that is pulled by a belt. The two sets of blades (one in each support column) meet at the middle around the review mirror completely closing the light, heat and UV radiation (which is responsible for cracking the dash).

The Sun Shutter™ is something that could benefit any vehicle owner. Leaving your car in the sun can cause inside temperatures much higher than outside. It can easily reach over 150° which is not only unhealthy for you and your pets but a strain on the vehicle’s air conditioner as it struggles to cool you off.

The Sun Shutter™ also prevents easy viewing of your belongings as well. The shutter blades are very thin but aluminum, preventing any light getting through.

When not in use the shutters retract back into their respective holding compartments, the cover doors close and the Sun Shutters™ disappear from view.
