Video Transcript for WeatherTech Easy-On Stone and Bug Shield Deflector Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the WeatherTech line of Easy-0n Stone Deflector and Bugs Shields. Now here's a look at one of the Easy-0n Bug Deflectors installed. Now these do a great job of following along exactly with the contours of your truck. And they can offer you a lot of protection for that paint up here on the leading edge. You can see it's kind of unique on our Tundra here. The way it really comes up, comes over, it's not blocking any of the ventilation here on the top of the hood.

And still helps to maintain a really good look while giving us a lot of protection.Now, just like on our Tundra here, all of these are designed to be an exact fit for your vehicle, so we're not just taking a universal piece of plastic and trying to bend it and flex it and make it work. This has been designed exactly, just like WeatherTech floor mats, they get an exact map of the front of the vehicle and they can help to ensure that it's going to fit each and every time.Now with this Easy-On system, installation is going to be very, very quick. In our case, it took us maybe five minutes. Two of those we're just cleaning the surface to make sure it was ready. Each application is going to be a little bit different, but generally if we look through the reviews and everything, think five to fifteen minutes is really going to be all the time you need to spend on it.Now to help that installation along, this is going to be, again, custom design, so this hole that's in this tab lined up perfectly with an already existing hole in the bottom side of our hood.

Now some people have given a few complaints about these. They call them screws, but basically what this is is it's just like a push pin fastener. So the outside is going to go in and then you'll push that center in, you really don't have to turn it with a screwdriver or anything like that. Eventually when it is all the way flush like this, you could continue to turn it. So it's not exactly like a screw in that it's threaded, so keep that in mind.

Some people have commented that they don't like the way these fasteners hold and they'll replace that center section with a steel, stainless steel screw of their own. It's kind of going to be up to you, but in our case anyway, on this Tundra, it seems to work out really well.Now also, you can see right along this bottom edge here, most applications you're going to have the double sided foam tape. That gives us a great hold. So while we're traveling down the highway, we don't have to worry about wind getting underneath here and lifting it up or causing any flex.Now, each of their deflectors are made from an aerospace grade acrylic. Acrylic is a very, very durable material.

They say this is something that's virtually indestructible and it's also really good at resisting scratches. And that's going to complete our look at the WeatherTech line of Easy-0n Stone Deflector and Bug Shields.

The bug shield works great - still get a few bugs up high one the windshield but my line of sight is unimpaired. I don't have to stop every couple of hours to clean the windshield. Now if you could only come up with a shield for the 5th wheel.

Took a while to install this product. Did not fit great at the sides and was harder to close the hood. Had a large scratch on one end but looks okay.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


I’ve owned six chevy trucks. My current trusted steed is a 2008, silverado 2500HD, ext cab, long box. I bought it new and now have 339,000 miles on her. I added this bug shield to offer more protection and grace. It worked! Love it.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


I have purchased and used WeatherTech products in the past, always had good quality and concise installation instructions. I recently added the Stone and Bug deflector on my 2019 Colorado, it looks great. Having a new windshield installed because of a stone crack, hope to avoid these in the future.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Weather Tech products are great fit and finish. Etrailer shipped my bug shield order out quickly and arrived undamaged. This is not my first order from Etrailer. I’ve bookmarked their web page and they are one of my vendors of choice when I need something for our RV.


Comments
After a year on the vehicle and a lengthy camping trip last season. The bug deflector still looks like new. I’ll also add I noticed my class C RV drives down the road better. I think because the deflector is causing less wind to build up under the front cap and windshield.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Great quality, good fit overall…BUT, once again WeatherTech is “cheaping out” on their fasteners! Those ridiculous plastic push pin type fasteners DO NOT inspire confidence at all…the etrailer installation video acknowledged this. Come on WeatherTech…these things are IMPORTANT!!

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


The deflector itself is of good quality but the mounting hardware (plastic) sucks and caused me to engineer my own fasteners.

I would NOT purchased from Weather Tech again and believe etrailer should stop selling their products… The provided (4) fasteners have what felt like plastic, very finely threaded, undersized screws. In order to install the fasteners you have to apply a significant amount of pressure to the screw head. Three of the four screws just slid into the fastener and did not enlarge the buried section of the fastener enough to secure the bug shield to the hood (to the point that the hood would not even latch because the bug shield was held on so loosely). I tried several other of my own fasteners with varied results. I finally found some screws that were about 2-3 times the diameter and had much more aggressive threads. I had to cut them down to size and file the ends smooth. When I applied pressure to these screws the fastener sunk to the correct depth and the screws were large enough to cause the buried portion to spread out and anchor the bug shield to the hood. Surprise! The hood now closed properly at this point and the shield felt like it was attached solidly. From start to finish I spent about two hours trying various fasteners. At one point I considered drilling new holes in the bug shield and using screws and washers to attach it, but I was so frustrated with the installation that I was strongly considering returning the product. I eventually put two and two together and figured out the issue was the provided incorrect size, plastic screws that weren't working. Once I replaced them with the thicker screw with larger threads it all came together.


Comments
I will have the manufacturer reach out to you.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Had this bug deflector for a year now. Very happy with it. Easy to install yourself using existing parts on the stock truck. Better than the adhesive only on other brands. Solid and looks great.




by:

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Item arrived quickly and was as described. Only complaint was that the plastic fastener screws were either too short or too cheap because they wouldn't "catch" in the fasteners. I substituted my own screws and then it was a breeze. That isn't etrailer.com's fault though. Everything on their end was great!

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


It's a great bug deflector
Only thing
was I had to get longer plastic snaps to hold it onto the hood
But a year later it's still on and going strong




by:

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Very nice profile & a perfect fit for my 2011 E350 Super Duty. Came with a few scratches, so we got that outta the way. All screws provided are steel. Really not thinking that the bumpers provided are needed for this application. Time/Miles will tell.

As expected; the self tapping screws are not going in easy

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


I was frustrated by the supplied fasteners until treating them like pop rivets rather than screws. Push hard with a twist

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


2018 Toyota Rav4 Adventure. Item arrived quickly! The shipping box was damaged but the defector inside was fine. The product was described as on the website.
Only complaint really is with WeatherTech they are know for great products but screw up in other areas. They shrink wrap the defector and they really need to cover it before doing that because mine had a few scratches. The next things is the plastic fastener screws are too cheap and break and need to be longer.




by:

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Etrailer did your job,except shipping.
A
package this size should not be sent USPS even if it does not weigh that much.
Package took almost a month to receive.
Oh yeah make sure you have correct zip code.
