Reviews around thing (4.56 of 5)

  • Another important thing to remember is that when you are using the razer blade to clean off the excess resin, you'll hear a screeching sound
  • The only positive thing is that it prevents the crack from spreading.
  • One important thing about this kit is that it uses the UV light from the sun to cure the epoxy, so keep that in mind.
  • The more important thing for me is that the kit stopped the cracks from growing.
  • I think the most important thing is to have valid expectations.

Reviews around result (4.14 of 5)

  • To get good results, be very patient and follow the directions very closely
  • The instructions were simple to follow and the results were great
  • I was skeptical after using a different kit on another vehicle years ago with poor results, but this kit worked very well
  • Awful result the only remark it did not make it worse the damage

Reviews around expectation (3.94 of 5)

  • I see the negative reviews, and I'm inclined to believe that those are from people who either tried to rush through the repair, didn't follow the directions, or had unrealistic expectations
  • I went into the repair with reasonable expectation that i would still see small cracks or lines.
  • I had only modest expectations when I bought this to repair a star-shaped break on my windshield
  • This product exceeded my expectations and honestly I can't even see where I did the repair.
  • However, it will be important that you set reasonable expectations

Reviews around money (3.68 of 5)

  • Dont waste you money, get the chip or crack fixed by a pro.
  • Well worth the money - and it takes less than 20 minutes!
  • They are not completely invisible but as long as they don't expand into cracks, its money well spent
  • Just replace the windshield because if you expect perfect results with these products you will just be setting yourself up for disappointment...and wasting money in the process.
  • Its great to have one when you do , this unit has saved me money more than one time

Reviews around kit (3.42 of 5)

  • It's an excellent, effective, simple and inexpensive windshield repair kit.

  • The kit does an excellent job of repairing pits and cracks in the windshield, actually too good
  • Kit was impressive but we needed full repair and left with a small dent.
  • This kit had enough of everything needed to repair the windshield

Reviews around advertise (3.35 of 5)

  • Worked just as well as when I paid a company to come to my house and do the repair for $120
  • Disappointing as I have 3 windshields that need repair.
  • Followed directions precisely, this product didn't quite do as advertised (difficult to drop resin into the chamber it needs to be in while that chamber is mounted to the windshield)
  • This was received as advertised and worked well for the small crack on my windshield (it was about 6 inches long).
  • It that regard the product works exactly as advertised.

  • Product works well, however the crack did not completely dissapear.
  • Did not work as advertised, my crack looks just like before I applied the product

Reviews around repair (3.08 of 5)

  • I have used other repair kits for star-chips that worked great
  • worked good, you can faintly see the repair but it worked held up to a winter and summer so far
  • but if you want to believe your repair will be virtually invisible you may be open to disappointment
  • However I was not able to get the almost invisible repair.
  • But, don't expect a full invisible repair unless yourcrack is shallow.

Reviews around windshield (2.21 of 5)

  • I followed the instructions and it ruined my windshield
  • My windshield had a tiny crack that I was able to fill & patch up with this product
  • my windshield is much improved, good enough that I basically don't see the "dit" unless I stare right at it.
  • Just be careful about how tight you put the applicator because it can crack your windshield more if you do it too hard.
  • There is no longer a crack catching the light, and the windshield looks great

Reviews around star (1.98 of 5)

  • My windscreen had a bad double chip-and-star, right in the line of sight
  • I had what shows as a bulls eye on the package as well as a star, both were 1/4 to 3/8 inch.
  • Left a translucent circle where the star wad, but easy to use and effective!
  • Be careful though when using the tool as you can (and I did) crack a star that I was trying to repair even worse than it was by tightening the device too much.
  • In my case, I missed a tiny star on the other side of the windshield and a huge crack later the same week.

Reviews around day (1.80 of 5)

  • This repair kit is easy to use and the results are just as good as when you went to a garage for a windshield repair
  • Lasted for about a month and a half and the first day below freezing the windshield spiderwebbed out
  • I even tested the durability by dumping warm water on the windshield on a cold day 3 degrees Fahrenheit and surprisingly no crack!!
  • However, I can still see the crack clear as day, but after 2 months it has not gotten any
  • Worked just as well as when I paid a company to come to my house and do the repair for $120

Reviews around inch (1.00 of 5)

  • I had a chip in my windshield and this piece of junk made it crack about 5 inches
  • I had a small bulls-eye chip with a radiating spider crack no more than 3/4 inch in diameter.
  • I tried it on a long windshield crack about 12-14 inches
  • Now I have to deal with getting a 12 inch crack fixed in my windshield when I should have just lived with a tiny chip from a rock

Reviews around user error (1.00 of 5)

  • Keep in mind when you look at many of the low star ratings that this is a product that has its limitations and the results are strongly dependent on the individual using the product and all of the 1-star reviews are usually a result of user error or simply trying to fix something this product isn't capable of fixing
  • This is the first time using this kit, maybe it was a user error
  • I`m sure this would work great, due to user error though the crack doubled in size
  • I think the product could be useful but there is a high risk of user error
