Awkward and Not So Hot
on January 23, 2014
I have never tried these sorts of clips before but now have several pairs of glasses and sunglasses I use while driving and was looking for a good setup.
For starters, I don't think I am happy with the visor clip idea in general because I have a little car and there's just not much extra space. Either the glasses are hanging downward from your visor, in your face, or they are crammed between the visor and the roof, causing imprints on your roof and potentially damaging your glasses. And if you actually use your sun visor to shade the sun, you will be knocking your glasses against the windshield or side window.
The best use I found for this clip was for my clip on sunglasses but they didn't fit in all that great and the clip would sometimes loosen from the visor.
No matter how many times I used this clip, I had to remind myself which end to squeeze to open, because it's the opposite of what it looks like. There is an end that curves up, with sort of a lined finger grip but that's NOT the end you squeeze. You squeeze the smooth rounded end that looks like it is the "hinge" end. You can see this in the pictures but you have to really visualize it in use to see how awkward it is.
It's just goofy and I had to think it through every time and I really couldn't do it one handed. It was more difficult than my old arrangement of using slip-in soft eyeglass cases in my little open stash box in my dash.
