Vent Visors?

What are our options for in-channel vent visors? I like to crack my windows when I go into work, and vent visors are the best way to do that and not worry about the rain. I'd prefer the in-channel type, as they don't leave any residue or risk damage to the exterior of the car. Anything?

Same here, waiting patiently for them … I’ve had in-channel vent visors in all my vehicles I’ve owned for the past 20+ years and loved them, the only drawback is that it scratches the very top of the glass. three years ago when I purchased my Colorado, I stumbled upon an easy fix. Self-adhesive Teflon tape or PTFE tape (TEMP-R T-36 1.0” WIDE x .005-THK TEFLON ). After trial and error I found that wrapping the tape around the backside lip helps to keep it from peeling off from the window rolling up n down. you are able to see the a little of the tape from sitting inside, but its a small trade-off imo …

I'm sure it takes a while to develop a product from scratch and especially with all the new vehicles that come out every year

I'm half tempted to buy the chinese stick on's, they look decent and have chrome molding to match the trim. I've read the only problem is the double sided tape they use doesnt work so I would just replace it before I installed them
