Top 5 Retractable Screens of 2013

Like if this guide is helpful
In order to create a comfortable ride for young passengers in a car, parents often purchase a retractable screen for a back window. A screen blocks some sunlight, which leads to a more comfortable ride and protection from harmful UV rays. With the wide variety of car window configurations, and the large number of shades available, it can be difficult to find the best fit. The top five retractable screens thrive in areas such as ease of use, effectiveness, size, and durability.
1 Brica Retractable Smart Shade

With a generous area of sun protection, the Brica Retractable Smart Shade filters 90 per cent of sunlight, which includes potentially harmful UV rays. The slim-fit design creates maximum coverage from top to bottom. The easy installation process attaches the shade at the bottom of the window, between the glass and door panel. A clip attaches to the top of the window, allowing maximum coverage when in use, and maximum visibility when not in use.

The Safety 1st Complete Coverage Deluxe Roller Shade comes with a versatile set of features that protect children from uncomfortable beams of sunlight. The shade clips to the top of the window, or to a stationary point with the use of a suction cup. An automatic roll button allows quick and easy retraction. The shade is partially see through, so children can still enjoy the sights of their ride, and driver visibility is not completely gone.

In addition to its ability to keep uncomfortable UV rays out of a passenger's eyes, the Disney Pooh Deluxe Sunshade from The First Years features a delightful Winnie the Pooh design. The shade has two suction cups that attach to the top of the window. The shade pulls down and locks into place at incremental lengths. This shade is a great choice for parents of young children who are fans of the legendary cartoon character.

 

4 Sunshine Kids Solar Max Retractable Window Shade

For protection all year round, the Sunshine Kids Solar Max Retractable Window Shade features wide solar mesh that blocks a substantial amount of sunlight. With adjustable lengths and a rewind button, the shade is simple to use. With suction cups and clips, this shade works great for stationary windows like those in a minivan, and for windows that roll down.


5 Eddie Bauer 2 Pack Deluxe Roller Shade

The one-size-fits-all deluxe roller shade from Eddie Bauer is suitable for year-round use.

The plastic mesh is white and slightly see-through in order to maintain the driver's visibility.

 

The Top 5 Retractable Screens of 2013 Compared

While most retractable shades come with suction cups and clips for stationary or roll-down windows, the selection of screens varies in size and functionality. The larger the screen, the larger area of shade it creates. A bigger shade may limit the vehicles it can fit, however. Another point of variation is the colour and functionality. The Eddie Bauer shade comes in white, which creates a lighter shade than other black screens. While most shades pull down from the top of the window, the Brica Retractable Smart Shade attaches at the bottom of the window and stretches up. This position keeps the shade out of view when not in use.

Considerations When Choosing Retractable Screens

The decision of what retractable screen to purchase revolves around a few features. Shoppers must first consider the window for the screen. If it is a stationary window, they must ensure the screen comes with suction cups. If the window rolls up and down, the screen needs a clip to attach. The second consideration is the size of the window. The screen must be large enough to shade the necessary area. A shade that is too small lets in pesky beams of light.
