How do I properly place a car sun shade?

I just moved to Florida, and I read that the constant sunshine can harm the interior of your vehicle. I bought a sun shade to protect against the damage, but I’m not quite sure how to use it. What should I do to properly position a sun shade in my car?

Congrats on your recent move to Florida! While the sunshine is great for outdoor activities, it’s not so great for your car. Fortunately, you can place your sunshade with these simple steps:
  • Start by unfolding the sun shade inside the car so you don’t struggle to fit it through the door.
  • Slide the bottom edge of the sun shade onto the lower edge of the dashboard.
  • Press the upper edge of the sun shade against the upper edge of the windshield.
  • Pull the sun visors down and press them into the sun shade to hold it in place.
  • And you’re done!
