  • Contoured, beam-style frame applies uniform pressure along the entire length of the blade
    • Creates streak-free wipe
    • Ensures even wear along blade

Latitude Blade Flexibility

The all-weather Rain-X Latitude wiper blade provides superior visibility in rain, snow and sleet. The contoured, beam-style frame applies even pressure along the entire length of the blade so that it tightly conforms to your windshield. This helps to ensure a clean, streak-free wipe and uniform wear along the blade.


Latitude Squeegee

This windshield wiper blade sports a heavy-duty, graphite-coated rubber squeegee that withstands freezing conditions and ensures smooth, noiseless operation. UV inhibitors in the rubber help fight the damaging effects of strong sunlight.


The blade's aerodynamic shape combats lift when you are driving at high speeds. Also, the sleek, closed design and durable rubber casing of this beam-style wiper blade prevent snow and ice buildup, which is a common problem with frame-style blades.


Windshield Wiper Connector Types

This blade installs quickly and easily with the included hardware. It works with existing J-hook, pin-and-hold (P&H), pin-style, bayonet-style, pinch-tab button (PTB), or insert-and-lock (I&L) connectors on your Chevrolet Sonic's windshield wiper arm.

Video Transcript for Rain-X Latitude Windshield Wiper Blade Adapters Review

Today were going to cover changing out the adapters for the Rain-X windshield wiper blades. Well be working with the Latitude windshield wiper blade today. Were going to show how to remove the pre-installed small adapter and install the new universal adapter. You would use a larger universal adapter for bigger size J-Arms. The original one works good for the small one and then for a larger one you would want to use a universal adapter. To remove the original one first, you should rotate it 180 degrees and it can pop out, however if it is a little bit on the tight side, you can put a small screwdriver in the pinhole to give it something to work against to pop it out as well.

Once you have the original out well go ahead and put the universal in. There are three slots on the adapter and well lineup the center one and then push it into place into the windshield wiper blade. Now we can go ahead and rotate that one out of the way to, to remove it or once again we can go ahead put a screwdriver into the small pinhole and push against it to pop it loose. Well go ahead and remove it and then well go ahead and install the adapter for the P & H arms. We just line up the pin on the adapter with the larger hole in the windshield wiper blade, slide it into place and then push down.

We would normally be doing this with the arm in place; however were going to show just how the adapter itself works. Lets go ahead and remove the P & H and well change the whole thing out to work with the INL and PTB connector systems. Theres a small tab to push and we just slide it off to the side. Basically to install inaudible 00:01:36 we just line it up, push down the center with the blade to make sure its seated and then slide it back into place where it locks in. Now for the other windshield wiper blades, such as a Fusion windshield wiper blade and the Weather Beater line, the universal adapter will install and uninstall in the same fashion.

With that, thatll finish it for removing and installing the connector systems on our Rain-X windshield wiper blades. .

I had gotten my windshield wipers replaced at Goodyear. They either put them on incorrectly or out the wrong size. I went back to get the issue fixed and ended up with 2 different wiper blades. I went in etrailer and found these for a great price and easy installation and am extremely happy with my purchase. They are great. Thank you! 117128

Review from a similar Rain-X Latitude in Windshield Wiper Blades


The communication from this company is great. I have not found a company that has kept me in the loop on what was happening with my order as well as this one has. Almost to much communication. The blades were exactly what I ordered, well packaged and really fast shipping. Will be ordering more items soon. 111546


Comments

I have never had a company follow through a year later. I love the communication. Great way to move up sales without being pushy. Also a great reminder to buy replacement blades. The blades worked great for about 6 months, then they started to do the same as my prior blades. They will not hold to the window and clear the complete viewing area. I thought when this happened before it could have been a combination of windshield and blade issues. However after new windshield and blades, the situation has returned. So not really sure what to do now.

Review from a similar Rain-X Latitude in Windshield Wiper Blades


I had some noisy, old wipers on my Lexus RX330. Installing the new Rain-X Latitude blades was easy and fast. Since we are still in our rainy season in Florida, I have had several opportunities to see the blades in action in light and heavy rain, and in slow speed and highway speed conditions. (I won't ever know how they do in snowy conditions LOL) They do a great job and are very quiet. I am very happy with these blades. On top of this are the outstanding customer service and excellent communication by the etrailer team. Thanks!! 149112

The wipers are excellent and the websites service is awesome! Very user friendly and the service was fast. I highly recommend this company and the product. I am extremely satisfied. I had no idea what I needed, all I did was type in wiper blades for my vehicles year make and model, an entire list popped up and I was able to get exactly what I needed. The price was also very reasonable, it was over half the price of getting these wipers at a repair shop or car wash. Keep up the good work etrailer! 161423

Product was exactly as ordered. The service from this company is fantastic!!!! The representative who took my call really went the extra mile. I wasn't sure what size blades to order for my vehicle and he took the time to go on the Rain-X website to look it up for me. Followed up with emails letting me know the progress of my order. This is the second time I have ordered from this company and will definitely order from them again. The order arrived the day after I ordered it!!!! 116444

Review from a similar Rain-X Latitude in Windshield Wiper Blades


Very difficult installation. Poor instructions and the website instructional video is a pure deceit. The removal of the clip shown in the video is performed by a woman and it is shown as an easy click disconnect. That is Hollywood production. In a real world it is an extremely hard pull and you worry if the clip is going to break. I found this really unbelievable. It is far more productive to buy the blades from VW (you pay more) and save yourself a frustration. Never again. 133982

Review from a similar Rain-X Latitude in Windshield Wiper Blades


High rated wiper blades - for 2 cars. I expect good results. Seems odd to me, though, that they do not carry the rear wiper blades. Nonetheless the buying experience was among the best - I made a change to the original order and a phone call to customer service rep Julie fixed my oversight. Prices were fair and shipping was very reasonable. Products were shipped out next day and arrived ahead of schedule. Could not ask for more. I AM VERY IMPRESSED!!! 176736

Bought these wipers to replaced the OEM wipers on our Mazda 3. Night and day difference. We'll have to wait until next winter to see how they handle snow, ice and generally frigid conditions but so far they have been excellent during heavy rain. Purchase and delivery from etrailer.com was first rate plus the YouTube video link for my specific car made installation a snap. 131010

  • Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blades Not Making Full Contact With Windshield of 2010 Chrysler Sebring
  • For proper performance, make sure you are using the correct size wiper blades on the vehicle. The Latitude blade you referenced, part # RX5079281 is a 26 inch blade. It is recommended that on the 2010 Sebring, a 24 inch blade, part # RX5079280 be used on the drivers side and a 22 inch blade, part # RX5079279 be used on the passenger side. I have confirmed that the Sebring does indeed use the J-hook type attachment. I would recommend removing and reinstalling the wiper to ensure it is...

  • We do offer the windshield wiper blades for your 2009 Honda Accord. For the driver's side you would need part # RX5079281, and for the passenger side you would need part # RX5079276. Because of the various connectors that your Accord can have these wipers come with all the hardware needed to connect them to J-hook, pin-and-hold (P&H), pin-style, bayonet-style, pinch-tab button (PTB), or insert-and-lock (I&L) connectors on your Honda Accord's windshield wiper arm.

  • First, thank you for your recent purchase from etrailer of a set of new Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blades # RX5079281 and # RX5079277 for your 2013 Volvo S80. I have used these on my car for the last few months and they do perform far better than standard blades. These replacement blades, and just about all others, come with a range of adapters and clips to allow them to fit a very broad range of vehicles.

  • Windshield Wiper Blades for a 2012 Toyota Avalon
  • On your 2012 Toyota Avalon the driver's side wiper is a 26 inch and the passenger side is a 20 inch. I use Rain-X brand wipers on my car and they have worked flawlessly for me. For your Avalon you would use Latitude blade # RX5079281 for the drivers side and Latitude blade # RX5079277 for the passenger's side. I have linked a video showing installation on a similar vehicle.

  • Windshield Wiper Recommendation for 2004 Toyota Prius
  • I've been using the Rain-X Latitude blades on my vehicle, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. The blade sits flat against the windshield, and doesn't chatter or make noise. The blade uses a closed design, which lessens the chances of snow sticking to it. The Prius uses unequal length wipers. The driver's side uses a 26 inch blade, part # RX5079281 and the passenger side uses the 18 inch # RX5079275.
