About Bug Deflector
Bug deflectors are intended to prevent insects, as the name implies, from spraying on your windscreen and hood. Also make sure to cover your hood, fenders, and windshields against rocks, gravel, and other debris. Bug deflectors are placed right on your car's front hood. Such deflectors are typically constructed of hard materials in order to withstand harsh conditions.
What is the purpose of Bug Deflector?
The main purpose of installing a bug deflector on your vehicle is to shield your hood, fenders and windshield from smacking rocks, gravel and other debris. If you're driving your vehicle at high speed, bugs or even small rocks could hit the windshield of your vehicle and cause damage. These deflectors are designed to protect your windshield by preventing bugs or small rocks from being smashed into your windshield.
How Bug Deflector Works?
If you look at a bug deflector, you might wonder how one piece of plastic can protect your windshield and hood against insects, rocks, stones and other road debris, even without covering your entire hood or windshield. The error deflectors are actually working by altering the vehicle's internal aerodynamics. The acrylic strip placed on the front edge of the hood of your vehicle creates an upstream air in front of your vehicle while the car is driving, This upstream of air created by the bug deflectors sweeps bugs, tiny rocks and other road debris over your car.
Where is Bug Deflector Located?
