Big Tape for Broken Car Window
It is so frustrating to have a broken car window! Whether is gets smashed by a break in or the window motor just fails, nobody wants to have to deal with the frustration of a temporary fix. That's why we came up with Big Tape - we couldn't find anything for sale that was easy to install, would handle highway speeds, and came off without leaving a sticky residue.
So, if you need a temporary fix for your car window - order a Big Tape!
There are two sizes - Regular and XL. Regular has enough for one side window repair. - there is 6 ft of tape on each roll. We typically use 4 or 5 ft to fix a side window. XL gives you 12 ft on a roll - plenty to cover your window with some extra to spare. We also sell Two Packs with a handy safety slitter to make cutting Big Tape easy - and keep you from accidently scraping your car's paint.
Order at this website, on AMAZON (including Prime!), or on AutoZone.com.
Bugs and Boats
Get tired of having bugs splatter your boat when you tow it somewhere? I live in Florida and in May and September we have "love bug" season! These black flies will cover your car/truck and boat! And their guts have some kind of acid that will literally eat away at your paint or gel coat.
So, I've taken to covering truck and boat with Big Tape - goes on easy and peals right off when I arrive! No more bugs to wash off after a long trip! Ah, bliss! Try it!
Can you see through Big tape?
People often ask if you can see through Big Tape once it is on your window. Yes, mostly! It is not as good as a glass window, but it is a whole lot better than a trash bag! I've seen some ridiculous things people use as a temporary fix! Here is a picture I took looking through a Big Tape window.
It is amazing how many car windows are broken every day by thieves smashing the window and grabbing what they can...Last year in San Francisco there where 31,000 reported smash and grabs! That's a ton! Crazy article by Inside Edition HERE. Tips on how to avoid it by Nationwide Insurance HERE.
My friend Hal had his truck's window smashed....
Using gloves, he removed the rest of the broken glass....
The police had already been by...so now he made an appointment to have it fixed. Since it was the weekend, it would be a few days. For a temporary fix, we put a Big Tape on - and he was good to go!
Temporarily Fix a broken car window
Black trash bags are a common fix to temporarily cover a broken car window - but they don't work! Obviously, you can't see through it, you can't use it on the road, and - in this application -you can expect rain to get in the car. Big Tape is a better solution until you can get your window fixed!
Window Smash and Grabs
Did you know over 1 million vehicle windows are smashed every year in robberies? San Francisco alone last year had over 25,000 windows broken and thieves broke in to grab stuff out of cars.
