Just an FYI, get a bottle of alcohol and clean the channel the visors stick to literally until you see no black smudging. I literally had to wipe the entire channel about 40 times. I did not want a half-a$$ seal, I did not want to have to go back and do any re-work. I was also lucky because right after the install you role the windows up to apply pressure, I had to leave town for 5 days, so they set up for 5 days. That was well over a year ago and mine are still perfect and tight everywhere. So take your time, clean, clean, clean and allow a few days to set up just to be sure


P.S. The only downside to In-channel is sometimes you hear grit on the edges of window when rolling up and down, I used to try and vacuum, now I use compressed air and works good.

Re: Vent Visor Preference: Stick on or Channel?

I see the OP already ordered the in channel and everyone so far has said go for in channel. So I'm going to say you should have gotten the stick on.

Re: Vent Visor Preference: Stick on or Channel?

I have the stick on's, only one's I could find around my area (think I found them at PEP BOYS), I have not had any issues with them so far. I've never had in-channel one's before so I can't compare to two. But again, no problems up to this point.
