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.

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.

The deflector itself is fair. They cheaped out and 4 of the 6 mounting screws are plastic. Yes plastic and a poor gauge plastic too considering they have to hold the rubber hood seal in place and prevent wind whistle and debris from entering the Compartment. During the install two of the plastic screws didn't cut, they could not hold the pressure of the rubber gasket and the big deflector had to stop and go find substitute metal fasteners. Additionally, the first one showed up broken in a 2 boxes taped together poorly packed attempt at shipping. Jammed inside the box rubbing all over the long bug deflector were my mudflaps (which are garbage) They sent me out another one but I had to wait an additional week, they didn't even upgrade the shippIng,



by:

Installing the WeatherTech Bug Shield would have been a whole lot easier if the hold down anchors and screws used with the rubber hood seal were long enough to secure the bracket and seal to the hood. I had to use longer plastic anchors and screws to get the brackets secure. This issue was raised in other reviews, so apparently these reviews are never read by anyone at WeatherTech. Otherwise, a very nice useful product.

Customer service from Noah was stellar!!! Quality of the Weather Tech shield is excellent as would be expected - would be five stars if the mounting hardware wasn't just plain garbage!!!! The clips are just OK for mounting the outside edge of shield to hood - but the screws and anchors for the inside - 4 each of them are completely useless - throw away and go to the hardware store - anchors are way to small (just spin in the factory holes of my new Ford F-150) and screws are way to short to go through gasket and shield - I have installed numerous Weather Tech shields with absolutely no issues!!! Use license plate screws with no anchors and they fit exactly the factory holes for a snug fit - short enough so they won't reach the outside hood but long enough to attach both seal and guard - worked like a charm but you shouldn't have to do this on something with the reputation that Weather Tech has - whoever the engineer was that came up with this fiasco of mounting needs to have his/her credentials verified - I called Weather Tech - they said I must have the wrong anchors and screws - they sent me the exact same ones as replacement!!! Very disappointed - but it looks great now!!!!

IMO WeatherTech has gone straight downhill. This bug deflector is confirmation. The deflector itself, average, but the attachment system is complete garbage. One would think stainless screws would be included but instead WeatherTech includes cheesy push rivets that don't expand enough to even work. Never again.



by:
2018 Ford F-150

it seems ok quality ways however the plastic hardware that comes with it is usesles save your self time and aggravation and go and buy some good stainless steel screws washers and anchers before your try to install it the plastic stuff that is provided with the deflector is junk and easily brakes



by:

Great fit and easy installation. Weathertech makes only top rate products. Etrailer.com had fast delivery and I'll continue to be a repeat customer.



by:
2017 Ford F-150

Product is as described, looks great. Installation was explained but video would be an asset. Difficulty with and some muscle needed on the hood/ gasket expanding screws. Clips needed to be expanded A LOT...



by:
2017 Ford F-150

Overall this is a very good product...the rear covers could be a little tighter. I put a small piece of mounting tape in the channels to make sure they do not bounce loose.



by:
2019 Ford F-150

looks good but fasteners are junk replaced with stainless screws



by:

Install was difficult due to small fasteners provided. Had to get longer ones at auto parts store, and still was difficult to get tight. Havent driven with it on yet.



by:

Airflow caused by air deflector appears to now cause the hood to vibrate at high speeds.

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


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.

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.
