Ok now lets see what the users have to say about the Weather Force 360 windshield cover:
ScratchesThese complaints about the magnets scratching the hood and the windshield of the cars is abundant. Almost 80% of the reviews mention about this issue. Whether you want to put the cover on or take it off – the magnets scratch the surface.
Sticks to the WindshieldThe second most common complaint mentioned by the reviewers is that the Weather Force 360 material being very thin and lightweight it flaps a lot even in not-so-strong wind and some snow is able to pass through the gaps at the bottom, this ice fuses the cover to the windshield – making it difficult to remove. You have to be careful that you do not pull it apart or that would tear the Weather Force 360. You will have to start the car and let the ice melt to remove the windshield cover.
Not a Single Person’s JobInstalling the Weather Force 360 is very time consuming particularly when it is windy. Many reviews mention that it is not one person’s job to put the Weather Force 360 on or remove it. You need one person each on the either side of the vehicles, as the magnets keep sticking to the surface of the car when the cover is being slided across.
Not a Full Proof SolutionThe Weather Force 360 still leaves gap at the bottom from where the snow can still go inside though not a whole lot of it. Also, the flaps that go inside your car from the doors get wet and soggy.
Too ThinReviews mention that it is too thin to be used as an effective windshield cover. It flaps a lot when it is windy. Lightweight material has its own drawback, the Weather Force 360 cover gets blown even by no-so-strong winds. Heavy winds, heavy downpours cause the magnets to move from their place revealing the windshield to the forces of weather and scratching the surface. One reviewer suggests to ask the weight of the cover before buying it.
Not For Windy ClimateThe Weather Force 360 name makes it sound stubborn and durable but the reviews mention that it would not stand the very strong winds. Reviewers warn not to get carried away by the fancy claims made by the promoter. The Weather Force 360 is just another windshield cover and there is nothing special about it. When the forces of nature are furious it is bound to fail.
Tall Trucks and Short PeopleThe Weather Force 360 is particularly hard to put on tall trucks without sliding it over the surface. Short people will find it particularly difficult. So unless you can reach across the windshield.
Is it a scam?
Nope. Weather Force 360 is not a scam. All the pros and cons associated with the Weather Force 360 also apply to all the magnetic windshield covers out there in the market.
You cannot have one windshield solution for all the weather conditions. Windshield covers have their limitations and they have to fight against the forces of nature. Weather Force 360 is no exception to it. The promoters of Weather Force 360 make it look like a “360 degree solution”, like a miracle product which can take on the toughest of weather conditions – well this is not true.
