The only links to the home made ones are contained within the Forum archives. Just a matter of reading through them.
Of course, each person's own invention is the best:-)

I too went for a commerical product with Obies Outback Rear Window Saver.

I used this one to make them up.

Rear window guards

Saved some $$$ on the commercial ones. Took about 2 hours after acquiring all the necessary bits and pieces.

Easy job.

Paul,

The photo I posted above is actually slightly out of date.

I found after six months or so, the full length strips contracted and expanded with weather conditions and lost their adhesion.

I have since changed over to Velcro Dots (hook side) for the window glass and they last about 2 years before breaking down from ultraviolet rays. Simple enough to replace with new ones.

One day, I will remove the original strips from the Obie's screens and reverse the Velcro so that the softer "loop" Dots remain on the vehicle glass and the harder "hook" nylon Dots stay on the screens. This is simply to make washing easier as I find the "hook" Dots pick up bits of sponge as I wash. The softer "loop" material may also not be affected by the Sun's ultraviolet rays.

All this aside, I cannot fault the adhesion properties of the Velcro Dots.

Bill.
