Auto Shades For Children Most people fully grasp the need for car seats, restraints and safety locks when they take their children out on the road, however not everyone thinks about auto sun shades in the same light. Just as a car seat helps prevent injuries in the case of an accident, a sun shade can safeguard a child from the dangers associated with direct sunlight, such as overheating, burns and even damaged eyesight resulting from overexposure to glare. Sun shades for children can be found in different styles. Some are meant to protect car seats from becoming too hot, some protect the child from both sides, some function as a canopy and some mount on the window. Protection from Every Side Canopy-style shades are attached with adjustable elastic fasteners, snugly securing it to a car seat. Since they are adjustable, they can be utilized on nearly any seat and work just as well. Once installed, canopy-style shades form a tent around the child, blocking sunlight from all angles, whatever the direction the vehicle is heading. Children may feel contained and cut off from others in the vehicle which is one of the down sides of canopy-style shades. They may also feel mildly claustrophobic from the proximity of the “walls� produced by the canopy fabric. Moreover, children won't be able to see out the window, which can be one of the pleasures of a car ride. Open It Up Window sun shades provide more limited protection, but provide the child with significantly less restriction. Suction cups are used on many varieties to mount them to the window. Some roll down, which allows them to be stowed when sunlight isn't a problem, while others have suctions cups on all four corners and need to be fully removed to allow light in. The shade itself is often a perforated material, allowing tiny dots of light into the car, thus diffusing both glare and heat without completely blocking the sun. To achieve the same effect, other shades might use an opaque material. Children can remain totally engaged with those around them which is an additional benefit of window sun shades and although it will be with a limited view as the shade is not fully transparent, they will be able to look out the window. Although window sun shades can effectively diffuse sunlight, they do not protect from all angles like canopy-style shades. Sunlight and its heat and glare can enter into a vehicle as is negotiates turns and curves. Protective Actions Another kind of sun shade is meant for times when the car is parked. As sunlight fills the car’s interior, a car seat may become very hot, which can cause discomfort and even injuries, especially if a child touches metal parts. In order to prevent this from happening, some parents opt for a shade that is intended to do this. Essentially, the shade shields the seat from the blazing heat that can occur from even a few minutes of sitting in the sun. Ride Accessories
