    window sox - please post if interested

    Hi folk,

    I mentioned window sox the other day and had some interest.

    If you have questions, or would be keen to order, let me know, PM or post. I will find out prices next week for you.

    The "sox" is mesh and pulls over your entire window frame, blocking light off the window, no ties, no interferance with car seats/belts etc.

    The window can be wind down, and the mesh stays in place, inside and out. The child cannot climb out and no debris can come in.

    They are great to use, however you can not use them on the Subaru Forester because the back window does not have the frame around the window. I had to get the ones from Subaru.

    The just pull down over the window like a sox.

    You still can open your window w/ them on too.

    yes their great...we had them on our car windows , but i found even with the window down not alot of air got through...though i loved how dark the back seat was ..easier for the kids to sleep on long trips.they are about $50 AU here for the two soxs.

    I've actually either seen them, or seen something similar around here lately. The ones I have seen on the freeway though are not tight around th e window, they do stay on, but they flap quite a bit.

    seems like a nice idea, definitely safe, but i imagine the outside half of the sox may get dirty, being exposed to the outside of the car? plus they look kind of silly on the outside of the car. but functionally, seems like a neat idea.

    wow those are cool looking.

    Do they fit a lot of vehicles (as long as there is a fram around the window?) or do they have different sizes (SUV, sedan etc?)
