DIY Car Tint Kit by SnapTint
Released January, 2012
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.
