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!
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!
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.
