DIY Car Tint Kit by SnapTint


$75.00 Released January, 2012

Product Shot 1 The Pros:99% UV Protection. Glare reduction while driving. Blocks 40%-60% of solar heat.

The Cons:NO support. Their phone system has not worked for years (at least from 2006 to July of 2008) so you never can talk to someone. Near impossible installation - bubbles and creases are inevitable. Product images on website do not match actual product.

The Do It Yourself Car Tint Kit by SnapTint lets you install your own tinted windows without having to pay for a mechanic. The instructional video describes the process as "three easy steps" though when watching the video it's more like 10.

Included with the kit are some of the tools necessary to apply the tinting film to your car's windows. These are:

  • Gasket jammer - used to jam the tint film into the weather gasket area
  • Olfa knife (exacto knife) - if any trimming is needed for a better fit
  • Lil' Chizler - for removing creases
  • 4" card (similar to a credit card) - for removing excess water beneath film, though it seems like the Lil' Chizler could perform a similar function.
  • Window tinting film

The film comes in precut arrangements for a particular model of car, so cutting customizations should be kept to a minimum. Alongside the included tools you'll need some household tools of your own to apply the tints. These include

  • spray bottle
  • baby shampoo
  • lint-free cloth
  • distilled water

View the installation video to see how it all comes together.

Anonymous: #diy_car_tint_kit_by_snaptint The best company for Do it Yourself Precut Automotive Tint Kits is TintZoom.com. All of my friends and i have been ordering their tint kits for years and not only do they answer their phone, their customer service experts all have a minimum of 15 years of installation experience and they have provided us with numerous installation tips for the particular vehicles that we were tinting. Great Company and excellent fitting tint pattens! May 4, 12

    Anonymous: I also ordered my automotive tint kit from TintZoom.com. The tint patterns fit perfectly and the LLumar film looks fantastic! Oct 2, 13

ericheatherh: #diy_car_tint_kit_by_snaptint This looks like a simple system but it is NOT. I am quite a handy guy and I ended up having to just rip the stuff off and throw it away. There is a reason people make a living putting tint on car windows. I normally like DIY but SnapTint simply doesn't work.

The company itself does not stand behind its products. They cannot be reached by phone (their phone system has been "down" for over 2 years now) and will not give any refunds.

Just remember, do you really trust a company that you can't talk to and won't give any money back? I should have listened to the red flags! instead I just ate $120. Sep 18, 08
