New York is known as the fashion capital of the world and this holds true for bumper guards too. Bumper protectors are in vogue and the attached pictures show some wacky bumper guards caught on the streets of New York. With parking spots in short supply, people have come up with all kinds of clever ways of protecting their bumpers. All said, constructing your own bumper protector or bumper guard may be as simple as going to your local hardware store, buying some rope, a rubber sheet or carpet remnant.
As long as you have some rope you can use almost anything for the bumper protector including....cardboard, bath towel, show mat etc. Kudos to all you bumper protection gurus who come up with ever creative ways of protecting bumpers. If you see any wacky bumper guards, door guards or bumper protection devices feel free to share your thoughts and pictures. Cheers.
Before purchasing a ParkingArmor please consider the following:
Your trunk width must be large enough to accommodate storing the ParkingArmor flat when not in use. Measure the interior width of your trunk space to determine the maximum size ParkingArmor your vehicle can accommodate. (For example, if the interior width of your trunk is 46 inches, do not order the 4.8 Edition, order the slightly smaller 4.2 edition, so it can store flat in your trunk).
The location of the vehicle’s exhaust pipes is very important when selecting the correct size ParkingArmor for your vehicle. Be sure to measure the distance between your rear exhaust pipes to ensure you have enough space between ParkingArmor and your exhaust pipes. ParkingArmor should never come in contact with exhaust pipes. Do not cover or block the vehicle’s exhaust (even after parking the exhaust pipes remain hot and any contact may damage the product or vehicle). (next para) Note: For example, the Porsche Cayenne has exhaust pipes located high in the bumper.
If you plan on parking on the street and your rear license plate is located in your bumper, please contact us (link) for alternative product recommendations. Do not cover or obstruct your rear license plate when parking on the street or you risk receiving a ticket.
