Bug Shields To The Rescue

16 Jul  

Bumper Specialties is a manufacturer of self-adhesive polyurethane rubber bumper feet, but we could see how our name might be slightly misleading….

We get a ton of calls about car bumpers. No we can’t fix your engine or rotate your tires or replace your front bumper because someone backed into you. And as much as we’d like to be able to fix your ’57 Chevy’s bumper, that is not our specialty. But what we can provide you with is our own BS-57 bumper foot that is used on automotive accessories like bug shields.

Bug shields, or ‘hood protectors’ go on the front of cars and trucks directly above the headlights and extend across the whole hood. Their name is self-explanatory – but if you’re more of a visual learner:

Our bumper feet prevent the shield from banging against the car. Many automotive accessories manufacturers have designed hood protectors that successfully deflect bugs while also protecting the front body of the automobile. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they protect your vehicle from all types of weather and debris.

Our conical, BS-57 self-adhesive bumper is perfect for this application. Its tapered shape keeps the shield from banging against the car, thus protecting the paint and hood. Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, one of our other conical bumper feet may work better for you. If you like to take your truck though rough terrain and harsh weather, you needn’t worry. For this kind of outdoor application, we provide a strong acrylic adhesive that will stay bonded regardless of the climate.

It's only fair to share...
