Q. What is the difference between AutoMirrorGuard and Aluminum guards?
A. Guards made with soft metal Aluminum is the reason thieves are able to steal mirrors, it requires drilling holes in housing for rivets and may also cause moisture to penetrate into electronics and rust parts you have to sacrifice the looks of your car, and loose resale value.
Our guards are made with Carbon Steel, Powder coated fits with screws above mirrors inside housing and do not require disassembling are one of the few reasons thieves are unable to exploit.

Q. By fitting anti theft guards would my car loose its resale value?
A. Actually if your car retains original mirror at the time of sale your car has more value than the one fitted with after market mirror. Fitting home made guards that require drilling for rivets does cause your car to look ugly and loose value.

A. We do not provide or suggest, please be aware drilling holes in your housing may permanently damage and reduce resale value of your auto.

A. We do not suggest the use of super glue, glue would cause hardening of housing surface and would stick forever, and could cause damage to housing and also reduce resale value of your car/truck.

A. We only provide powder coated stainless steel screws for installing the guards. We do not recommend using tamper proof screws as incorrect positioning of screws can hamper normal mirror movement and it becomes difficult to reinstall the guard again without damaging the housing.

Q. What is VIN Number, and where can I find it?
A. A vehicle identification number, commonly abbreviated to VIN, or chassis number, is a unique code including a serial number, used by the automotive industry to identify individual motor vehicle.
You can locate your vehicle identification number in a few different places, both off and on your vehicle itself.
Off the Vehicle, If you need to find your VIN, you can first check any documentation you have for the vehicle, such as:
Vehicle title, Registration card, Insurance documents, Owner’s manual, Body shop repair records, Police reports, Vehicle history report.
If you don’t have the documentation mentioned above, you can find the VIN on the actual vehicle itself.

VIN# helps us acquire genuine parts from dealer for your vehicle in order to custom design guards.

On the Vehicle, The VIN can often be found on the lower-left corner of the dashboard, in front of the steering wheel. You can read the number by looking through the windshield. The VIN may also appear in a number of other locations:
Front of the engine block. This should be easy to spot by popping open the hood, and looking at the front of the engine.
Front of the car frame, near the container that holds windshield washer fluid.
Rear wheel well. Try looking up, directly above the tire.
Inside the driver-side doorjamb. Open the door, and look underneath where the side-view mirror would be located if the door was shut.
Driver-side doorpost. Open the door, and look near the spot where the door latches, not too far from the seatbelt return.
Underneath the spare tire.
If you still can’t locate the VIN, try consulting your vehicle manual. Or, call a dealership or the manufacturer and request guidance. You will need it to do a VIN check.
