Tips

  • While making a purchase decision, be sure to choose a small sunglass holder. Do not buy anything too big as it will obstruct your view and will also look out-of-place.
  • Sunglasses with thick plastic frames work well with all types of sunglass holders. Don’t worry about whether you need to buy slide-in style or clip-on style sunglass holders, just choose based on your personal preference.
  • If you have a clip-on style sunglass holder, attach it to the visor sideways to make it easier to hang or remove your sunglasses. Note that this cannot be done with wide, strap-on style organizers.

FAQs

Q: I have thin, wire-framed sunglasses. Will the sunglass holder bend the frame?

A: A slide-in style sunglass holder carries the risk of bending thin wireframes. Instead, you can consider buying a clip-on style sunglass holder with soft cushioning on the clips, which will not bend the steel frame.

Q: My visor is too thick. Will the clip fit?

A: Most sunglass holder clips are designed to fit visors of all shapes and sizes. However, you can also consider buying a sunglass holder that has elastic bands that can be strapped onto the visor.

Q: Will the sunglass holder clip leave a mark on my visor?

A: It depends on the strength of the clip and the thickness of your visor. However, if a sunglass holder does leave marks on your visor, they are only temporary, so you don’t have to worry.
