The Comprehensive WindRestrictor® FAQ
The Comprehensive WindRestrictor® FAQ

What is a WindRestrictor®? It's not a thing, it's a company. We make #windblockers for #convertibles and #Glowplates for #coupes.

What's a wind blocker? A wind blocker is a device that attaches to your vehicle and redirects the airflow out of your cockpit. It's also called a #windstopper, #windjammer, or #winddeflector. Our models come with laser-etched graphics and the ability to light them up with one of eight different lights.

What's a Glowplate? A Glowplate has the laser-etching and ability to light. It obviously doesn't block wind, because you're in a coupe.

What's laser-etching? Laser-etching is a type of engraving we perform on an acrylic compound. It obviously uses laser, and isn't going to fall off like stickers or decals. Also, it won't block your vision.

Why should I just get Joe Blow's wind blocker? Many wind blockers on the market are unsightly and/or unsafe. We've seen them made with pieces of net, thin and rigid plastic, or even small sheets of glass. Be very careful with such products. They have thin plastic straps or belts to anchor their products in. Remember, besides looking ghastly, your safety should have the quality bracketing we provide.

This all sounds great, but I don't know. What if I have more questions? PM me on Facebook, Direct Message me on Instagram, or Email me. I'll provide all the information below.

I purchased a Windristrictor and just waiting to get car out of storage. I didn't purchase the light strip at the time and then regretted it. The Windrestrictor version is too expensive and then shipping and exchange was going to make it a $100 CDN upgrade. I purchased a light strip for $5 and now need to get the wire t-taps and connectors. Does anyone know what gauge the brake light wires are? My guess is between 18-22 but the car is in storage so I can't easily look at the moment and I want to have the supplies on hand to do all the mods when it gets back home.

JohnWR 03-16-2019 02:41 PM

Wire gauges are listed in metric now, and the brake lights are 0.8 mm, or slightly larger than 18, which is 0.75 mm.

Hey guys! Sorry, I couldn't respond. Unfortunately, had someone close in my family pass. If you have any questions let me know.-Paul

Robotech 03-26-2019 11:27 AM

Very sorry to hear that Paul.

davhamm 03-27-2019 01:41 PM

Sorry to hear that Paul...

Is a new Brake module ever going to come out?

Wind Restrictor 03-29-2019 11:27 PM

Hey guys. Appreciate the kind words. I'll check on the brake mod for you @davhamm .

I was running through the FAQ's and I did have one Sky specific request. When going over the install differences on the WindRestrictor site "version 2" mentions mounting via Dual Lock. Is this the same as the 3M Velcro equivalent and what does it mount to? Can't seem to find a Sky install video of the Version 2 method anywhere. Thanks in advance.

Wind Restrictor 05-08-2019 08:07 PM

Hmmm I thought that was for the version two. Let me double check that.

Wind Restrictor 05-08-2019 08:13 PM

From the boss: "Dual Lock is a 3M product. It’s similar to Velcro yes just much more powerful. It mounts to the silver trim panel known as the tulip panel behind seats. The 3M Dual Lock comes inserted into grooves that are routed into the glass."
