Top critical review
Mostly plastic, not metal as described
on November 16, 2011
I bought two of these thinking they would be an improvement over the ubiquitous bug-shaped clips you find anywhere. They're not.
To begin with, they may have some metal in them (they all do), but they're mostly plastic. I doubt they'll hold up any better than anything else I've tried so far.
Secondly, the latch for opening the clip is hard to access with the sunglasses in place.
Third, once open, there is a piece with foam on it that hangs about halfway into the jaw space, so that it's easy to slip the glasses behind it rather than in front (where the foam is), thus making it a two-handed job. The bug clips are easier to use in this regard.
Lastly, what's with the little plastic clip (chrome-colored) on the face of the item? There is no explanation for it in the packaging and it seems to serve no function. Worse, it can catch onto things like the loops on my sun-shade.
I don't get the positive reviews for this thing, particularly considering what they charge for it plus shipping (each).
PS, after fooling around with it some more, I realize now it's designed to be attached to the TOP of the visor rather than the bottom. That position doesn't work for me; I like to put my eyeglass clips on the bottom of my visor where it's easier to reach and doesn't interfere as much with the visor operation.
I'm probably going to return them if I can figure out how to do so without spending more money.
