Rear Window Savers
Protection for your rear windscreen.
Now isn’t this a great idea? If you tow a van or trailer (particularly off road) you need this product!
Not many people understand the cost of having to repair a rear vehicle window which has broken as a result of a stone bouncing up from a van or trailer. Rear windows can cost up to 5 times more to replace than a front windscreen and some insurance policies may not even cover it. On top of that there’s the inconvenience. If you bust a rear window out at whoop whoop you’ll be eating dust and flies all the way back to the city.
Custom made from impact resistant clear polycarbonate (250 times stronger than glass) the Rear Window Saver provides cheap insurance against a spoiled trip.
So, how do our Rear Window Savers work?
- Well, we have developed templates for many popular makes including Land Cruiser 100 and 200 series, GU Patrol, Prado 120 & 150, Landrover Discovery 3 & 4 to name a few.
- They are cut to specifically fit and mould to the curvature of the rear window.
- They attach with a series of high quality, double action suctions cups so that they take only seconds to install and remove.
- So there is not need to permanently attach any fixing to your vehicle.
- No messy hook and loop fixing that can get clogged with dust and mud either.
- And we have never had a customer tell us that the Rear Window Saver has fallen off using our system! The suckers can be replaced if needed and we always have spares available in stock.
- We have customers all over Australia and our Rear Window Protector can be delivered to your door no matter where you are.
According to our customers they’re are a pretty good thing.
“We have just returned from a nearly 5000km trip to Birdsville and other outback areas, across a lot of rough road. I am happy to now let you know that the Plasweld rear window shield suction caps worked pretty well, and I certainly didn’t lose the shield as I had previously feared. A few of the caps needed to be ‘restuck’ occasionally as the moisture dried out and dust getting under the caps made them come loose but this was readily fixed – I just needed to remember to check the shield periodically and restick when required.
So I just wanted to let you know that your product performed well and I am most happy with it now. In fact, there were a few people interested in the protector and took down your details so you might get a bit of referred business!”

“Just wanted to give you a quick ‘thumbs up’ for the window protector we purchased from you for our 200 Series Cruiser. We are finally back from our trip down the Canning and what a trip it was. I was really impressed with the way your Rear Window Saver held on over even the roughest roads. I noticed that the back of the Cruiser suffered a number of stone chips so I can only imagine what would have happened if my rear window was unprotected. Having broken one on our previous vehicle I was not about to let it happen again and your product certainly boosted our confidence in that regard.
So all in all we are very happy and thanks again.”

I inquired about your product back in September 2012 and baulked at having to spend yet more money on safety equipment. Consequently I did not purchase one at the time.
We have recently returned from a trip and, I am sad to say, broke the back window in our 200 Series Landcruiser. It cost us $635 for a replacement window plus $185 in freight. Our insurance covered it but we were stuck for a week and the back of the vehicle was a hell of a mess with broken glass and dust. It was cold comfort that we were not the only ones in this situation as we heard of four others who suffered the same fate. I now concede that protecting the window would have been cheap insurance.
So I thought you and others may be interested in our story and, yes, I am coming back to you with my tail between my legs saying “please can I buy one?”

I have probably gone into “overkill” in prevention as I use both your product and “Stone Stomper” both purchased for this last trip to Central Australia & return, both fitted prior to leaving & not removed until back home; Stone Stomper only used when towing the T-Van. The Plasweld product stayed there the entire trip.
The Rear Window Protector stayed in place for the entire trip to Central Australia & return, so yes removing the sticker &/or a portion from the rear window that effected the suction cups was the key to getting them to stick as you advised by phone when I contacted you last. Sorry I was getting a bit stressed as I was well over a day late leaving for my trip and seemed to have one thing after another go wrong, trouble when you haven’t done a long trip in 5 years.
Happy for you to use the testimonial on your web page. All too often there is only negative feed back and customers forget to give praise when deserved for good service or products.
Have been spreading the “word” about the Product and where I got the product from.
Thanks and cheers

The Plasweld Rear Window Protector arrived at our door on Thursday just 4 days after I placed the order, fitted it that weekend and left for Robinson Gorge on Monday and we tested it over an 800k trip of nearly 200k’s of gravel road sandwiched between 300k’s of highway driving. The Plasweld RWP did the job, one suction cap did work loose but I simply cleaned it and that part of the window, re-stuck it, and then had no further problems despite some fairly rough gravel tracks. We are very happy with the Plasweld Rear Window Protector and the excellent customer service provided by you and the Plasweld Team.

We’re now back home after our month long trip to the Red Centre. All went well and the RWS certainly did its job. Have attached a couple of pictures of it fitted to my D3.
We did a total of about 8800 kms and, of that, about 3600 kms were on unsealed roads and tracks, including the Oodnadatta Track, Mt Dare and Finke Roads, Plenty Highway, Birdsville Track, Walkers Crossing, etc. Some of them were OK, but we also had some of the most corrugated and rough / stony stony roads that I’ve seen in my travels.
The RWS handled the dust and corrugations well and never seemed like coming loose.

Your Rear window protectors didn’t move on our trip to the Gulf of Carpenteria.
We did 10,000 ks on some of the roughest roads. None of the suction caps let go.
We are very impressed.
Thanks. Photo attached (Eric’s GU Patrol is pictured)

our Plasweld rear window saver has just completed another big trip – this time 4300k (650k on gravel) to Lawn Hill in far-north-west Qld and back. Again the PRWS didn’t move, despite some really rough roads and unbelievable bull-dust. And its been to Hervey Bay and across to Fraser Island in recent weeks. In all since June 2014, our RWS has clocked up 11,072k.
all the best for the festive season to you and your wonderful staff who make a great Aussie product.
