What is the Windshield Stick Pro™ used for?
The chisel end is great for removing excess sealant or adhesive. The curved end fits easily into tight gaps, and it also works as a pry tool without damaging the auto glass. This plastic windshield stick can be used to remove suction cups from windshields without scratching the glass. Just push the sharp chisel edge of the tool under the suction cup to break the vacuum seal to release it from the glass.
Another use for this plastic windshield tool is for installing window film tint. When placing the film on auto glass side windows, this tool is used to push the rubber gasket down slightly. This lets you place the bottom edge of the film below the top of the gasket. Not only does this make a more professional appearance, but it also stops the gasket from rubbing the bottom edge of the film each time the window is moved up or down. This stops the gasket from tearing the film or peeling it away from the glass. As a result, this assures a long-lasting installation.
How to use a windshield stick to remove decals?
The Windshield Stick Pro™ is the perfect hand tool to get rid of windshield stickers without scratching the glass. Begin by thoroughly cleaning the windshield since dirt can act as an abrasive. Then apply an adhesive remover to the decal per the instructions provided by the company. After it has softened, then use the chisel and of the windshield stick to scrape it away. Use a microfiber cloth along with the adhesive remover to wipe away the goo from the windshield. These steps may need to be repeated a few times until the sticky residue is gone.
A great tool to have in every toolbox, the auto glass chisel sticks have countless uses including windshield installation and removal, for prying on the glass, tooling adhesives and sealants, removing auto-trim, and much more. Made in the USA at our plant in Ohio.
Can a metal razor blade scratch a car’s windshield?
Some auto glass pros do use a razor blade. In most cases, they are able to do so and not scratch the glass. But just search the Internet and you will find there are many horror stories of scratched windshields caused by the use of a razor blade. All it takes is a bit of rust on the blade or scraping it on the windshield at the wrong angle. Plastic windshield sticks are popular among auto glass professionals for a reason. The only safe way to avoid scratching auto glass is to not use a hard steel blade.
Made of a specially made plastic, these windshield installation tools will not scratch, chip, or damage glass. This item is known by many names including a gasket push stick, fiberstick, fiber stick, windshield tool, windshield stick, windshield installation tool, plastic windshield tool, windshield bone tool, and universal tool.
Additional Information About Windshields
In order for a windshield to be properly installed, time must be allowed for the adhesive to cure all the way and form a strong bond between the glass and the auto frame before the car is driven. The main reason for this is safety and not the quality of the install. Professional windshield installers know this and thus follow the laws for safe drive-away time (SDAT) and minimum drive-away time (MDAT).
