This Wind Restrictor for the Chevrolet Camaro is in a class of its own. After two years of intense development work, the manufacturer felt they'd come up with the perfect wind screen. Being solid and translucent, the Wind Restrictor will block as much wind (or more) than the factory wind screen. It's clear, so you will not have any loss of visibility at night like some report with the black netted style screens. The patent-pending design allows for full top movement while installed, and is the first Camaro screen (and the only, to our knowledge) to have this feature. Unlike others, you can actually leave this in place while still having rear seat passengers. Installation requires no drilling or permanent modification at all.
The innovative bracket system is one of the most attractive features of the WR. Velcro-type straps don't belong on a car like the Camaro. This unique technology makes Wind Restrictor a leader in the industry. Thousands of satisfied customers will abundantly confirm this. They have developed a high quality black powdercoated stainless steel bracket system that makes this product perhaps the most solid and rigid on the market. The screen is securely mounted into specially designed steel anchors that are inserted into slots on the frame of your car. The center "light bar-stability bracket" is constructed from high quality black acrylic and has the Camaro text logo laser engraved into it.
Since this product is officially licensed by General Motors, you can choose from any of the available Camaro graphics to have laser engraved into your Wind Restrictor to personalize. If you want something unique, you can personalize your deflector with custom laser graphics for an additional charge. The manufacturer has a graphics artist that can help you with this after you order.
Finally, if you're looking for something else to help set your Camaro apart from the rest on the streets, the high quality illumination system offered as an additional option can do just that. Choose from a fixed color or go with the Extreme Light Kit for a multitude of colors and color changing options. The lighted windscreen also helps make your vehicle safer on the streets by allowing other drivers to more easily see you at night. This design is patent pending.
How does it work?
The Wind Restrictor is designed to significantly reduce back draft. Back draft is created when wind pressure inside your car's cabin is less than the wind pressure outside the car. The cabin acts as a vacuum and gusty wind enters from behind the passengers, creating noise and buffeting. The WR will block this wind from entering the cabin at highway speeds. You can control the amount of wind by adjusting the side windows. The lower you put your side windows, the windier it will be inside your cabin. Put them up completely to reduce wind as much as possible.

Some more details you might be interested in:
Made from double-sided AR Polycarbonate This very durable acrylic type material is also scratch resistant. Others are made out of much cheaper materials and dangerously breakable plastics. Some are Lexan; the disadvantage is that it scratches easily and won't emit illumination and may also discolor with etching.
Professionally and precisely designed and laser cut Others are produced at home using table routers and jigsaws leaving rough edges and defective shapes. Wind Restrictors are professionally produced from the finest materials using state-of-the-art equipment.
Illumination available The only wind deflecting device on the market that has this patent pending feature! You can have the Wind Restrictor Light Kit hard wired to any 12 volt wire in the car. Most car audio/electronic shops or dealerships can wire it or you can do it yourself in less than 1 hour. A cigarette lighter plug adapter or AAA battery pack can be added for an easy, convenient connection.
Laser etching available Etched with a high powered laser to really make your roadster unique and stand out. The engraving will also emit light and give off an awesome glowing effect with a light kit installed. Personalize your roadster with a custom logo or any of our standard graphics
Perfectly formed to the contours of your Camaro Others won't fit as nicely as this.
Attaches to your Camaro without permanent alteration or tacky fixtures No drilling or permanent modification is required.
Extremely smooth crystal-clear edges Others are sometimes sharp and ridged; ours are laser cut smoothly to perfection and then flame polished so that the Wind Restrictor looks and feels like "a million bucks" as well as emitting the best quality illumination
Glow Module Add-On
The Glow Module will work perfectly with the extreme lighting kit offered above. There is no need for the dimmer control switch, the on/off switch, battery pack, or 12V adapter if you have the Glow Module. Below you'll find the six options provided by this new and improved module - there is nothing like this on the market anywhere! With five different functions (plus off) to choose from as well as a slider to set intensity, the drive and show possibilities are endless with this incredible option!
Glow Module Functions:
Light Mode: Allows you to have the Windrestrictor lit up at any desired intensity with vehicle or running light power. It is constant and the intensity is only determined by the slider on the module.
Show Mode: This is the perfect mode for evening car shows or showing your Windrestrictor off while parked. It will not drain the car battery in any way. Intensity is determined by the slider.
Ghost Mode: No lighting while driving, but whenever the brake pedal is activated and then released, the Windrestrictor will produce a bloom in full 12V power and then fade out in a ghost effect. This patented lighting effect is a must see!
Brake Mode: The intensity while driving is determined by slider. (We recommend having the slider set to a mid level). When the brake pedal is activated, Windrestrictor lighting will kick up to FULL brightness along with your brake lights turning the Windrestrictor into a third brake light. When the brake pedal is released, intensity will go back down to the slider setting. If you set the slider to zero, no light will be present when driving, only when you brake.
Ghost PLUS Mode: While driving, the slider determines the lighting intensity. (We recommend having the slider set to a mid level.) When brakes are applied, lighting will kick up to FULL brightness with your brake lights. When the pedal is released, the ghost function allows the intensity to slowly fade all the way off, then slowly fade back to the slider setting.
OFF: Windrestrictor will produce no lighting at any time.

Extreme Lighting Kit: With our new Extreme Lighting Kit, you can choose which color you want your Wind Restrictor to light up in - no longer do you have to choose a pre-defined color. Choose from red, white, blue, pink, yellow, green or cyan any time you wish. The unit comes with a remote control that you can use to turn the lights on or off or change the color. The controller features a cool "fade" option and also a "blink" option for use at car shows or gatherings. Requires a 12V plug and can be either hardwired or used with a 12V outlet in your car for maximum flexibility.
We assume you're here because you're looking for something to block the wind in your car. There are a lot of names people might use to find such a device, words like wind screen, wind deflector, wind stop, wind blocker, wind block, etc. Hopefully you found us and like what you see. These are awesome, show-stopping wind blockers that do a lot more than just help you stay un-breezy.
2011-2013 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible (all models)
I purchased the windscreen for my 2011 camaro ss/rs. Not only does it help keep my daughters hair from whipping her in the face while sitting in the backseat, at night it really sets the whole car off with the illumination. Very nice product that has brought me countless compliments.
Nice addition to the Camaro, 12.8.2013
Reviewer: Shales C (Buffalo, NY)
The Wind Restrictor is a nice, but expensive addition to my Camaro. I had my own logo engraved and it was perfectly done. It looks really good when its light up. The glow module works great especially in the brake mode. The instructions for the installation were very clear and made the installation easy. It helps a little with the wind, but looks better than what it helps.
Wind deflector for 2011 Camaro COnvert, 5.28.2013
Reviewer: A. K. (Rochester Hills, MI)
Ordered in winter, finally put it on. At freeway speeds it cuts down the backflow in the rear seats, but I feel it more in front. Works well in the rear. Works REALLY well with all the windows up, BUT that REALLY make the driver a DWEEB- like why did you buy a convertible?
At 30/45mph, it's more noticeable in the front than without a deflector. Bottom line, if you need to keep the backseat gals hairdoos under control, then get it. If it's just ya'll in the front seats, it's a pretty costly piece of hardware- looks good, though.
Installation is ok, One of the back pin nuts kept spinning, so couldn't really tighten it - Blame this on the CAR. Oh, and I dropped the allen wrench. Some DARK crevice and I'll never get to it unless I pull the rear seats, etc.
The order missed the LED lighter adapter plug- had to phone that issue in. Couple days later, they sent it.
Missing Pieces, 4.17.2013
Reviewer: Daniel (Arlington, VA)
Cool product and excited to install... once I get all of the parts. I'm missing the on/off switch and the bolts are too short to clamp the wind restrictor on. It would be better if they just offered all of the needed pieces in a single package instead of nickel and dime'n you. All in all good product, a bit pricy but GM wants their piece too.
