Soft foam rubber pads on the straps provide a cushioned surface and raise the straps off the bumper
The impact cushions on the back are in strategic locations of the ParkingArmor for minor bump absorption
Despite what most people think, not all bumper guards are alike. Parking Armor is made of an industrial coated material, resistant to rain, snow and sleet. Parking Armor is all about quality, made of an all weather rubber-like coated material, Parking Armor stays flexible even in coldest weather.
Parking Armor has a durable weather-resistant exterior, similar to that of a turtle's shell, protecting it from the elements and providing maximum coverage for your bumper. With a micro textured coating, ParkingArmor is resistant to not only the elements, but dirt and debris build up too.
For added security there is a vinyl coated steel cable embedded inside the heavy-duty trunk straps of the ParkingArmor. The straps are then triple stitched for durability. Traditional scissors or knives cannot cut the steel reinforced straps on the Parking Armor, so you can park with ease on crowded city streets.
Parking Armor trunk straps have 2” x 4” soft foam rubber pads on the straps. The pads provide a cushioned surface and raise the straps off the bumper. By raising the straps off the bumper, the soft strap pads add an additional barrier layer between the strap fabric and the vehicle bumper.
Using only the best quality products, ParkingArmor incorporates a full-length reflector, which provides increased vehicle visibility and better durability. The reflector is extra bright and runs the full length of the ParkingArmor, so it provides better illumination and vehicle visibility when parked on dark roads or during emergency stops.
ParkingArmor is composed of an industrial strength hi-impact foam core. The flexibility of the foam enables the ParkingArmor to conform to the shape of the vehicle’s bumper once the trunk is closed.
Designed with a Flex Hinge System, the ParkingArmor is able to bend and flex around the contours of the bumper’s top edge. Once curved around the top edge, the flex hinge system allows the ParkingArmor to sit flush with the body of the bumper.
ParkingArmor comes with an added layer of impact protection, soft foam rubber impact cushions in strategic locations on the back of the product. The impact pads provide an added cushioned surface between the product and the bumper, best able to absorb impact from minor parking bumps. It also provides support to for anti-skid protection
Soft Anti-Skid foam pads behind both of the trunk straps help keep everything in place. This also ensures things are easy on your vehicles paint finish.

This bumper protector is unlike any other I have been able to find. I live in NY and lots of people do not know how to parallel park. This is my 3rd one. The first I lost with my car in a hurricane. I lost the second one recently. You should always remove this prior to driving; however, I was in a rush last week and I forgot to pick it up and put it in the trunk. While driving I was hit from behind pretty forcefully. The car went up under my SUV. Because I forgot to pick up this protector, my car was saved from major damage. The bumper protector took the bulk of the impact and I ended up with just a few scratches and a mangled tailpipe. I've used this with 3 different cars/SUV and have never gotten so much as a scratch or dent in the area it protected while parked. I see so many cars with scratches, dents, bumps, and bruises on the backs of their cars from parallel parking in New York City. It looks horrible. I have never had that problem. Most bumper protectors on the market today seem to be very thin rubber pieces or only protect the middle section of your bumper. Not this one. I think this bumper protector is about 2 inches thick if not more and comes in three or four sizes in width. I always get the largest which is 48 inches wide. I wish it came in a size a little larger and perhaps one that kind of curves around but it covers almost entire back bumper. I will always get this for my vehicle unless this company or another comes out with an even better one. The only thing I didn't like was that if there is a snow or ice storm, you have to be careful. This product sticks or freezes to your car and will sometimes leave the pattern imprint in your bumper when pulled up. I usually pick it up if I know there's snow and/or ice in the forecast because it happen to me. But for me personally, it's hands down the best on the market right now. Its very wide and super thick compared to others. And the thickness makes it double as a scratch an dent protector.

Only had a few weeks but but it looks pretty good. It was easy to install and it is easy to store. The construction looks excellent.
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.
