  2. Rubber Cover Boot – Top cover layer of the wiper that is exposed to the elements. 2 Made of durable high quality rubber compound. This boot has an aerodynamic spoiler which helps utilize wind velocity to reduce lift.thermal blade technical diagrammatic
  3. Metal Frame Attachment – Interlocks the frame rib and the cover boot together 3 and attaches to the wiper arm clip adapter. Made of high quality light weight metals for overall strength and performance.
    .
  4. Plastic Rib frame – Ribbed construction allows the wiper to bend and form to the curves of the windshield. The Rib Frame is also what holds the plastic slide rail for the squeegee. Made of high quality plastics for durability.
    .
  5. Plastic Slide Rail – Removable & replaceable part of the wiper frame which holds the squeegee in place. No hinge construction allows the squeegee to “sweep’” back and forth while wiping.
    .
  6. Silicone Squeegee – Made of a silicone compound for lengthened durability and a clear smooth wipe. The silicone compound extends the life of the wiper 2-3 times longer than rubber & produces active silicone coating action while rubbing against the windshield while wiping.
    .
  7. Thermostat is installed inline along the wiring harness and is mounted under the wiper arm on the outside of the vehicle. Once the Thermostat detects temperatures below 38 degrees F or 4 degrees C the thermostat draws power from switched power source and activates the heating element.
    .
  8. Heating element is encased in a silicone casing for added durability and extended life. this encased element sits within the squeegee itself and is no more than 1/8 of an inch from the windscreen surface during the wiping action.
    .
  9. Wiring harness has 8 feet of 22 gauge black ground wire and 10 feet of 22 gauge red power wire. During installation if more wire is needed crimp 1 butt connector per wire with 22 gauge extension wire. 22 gauge wire used = (7 strands of 30 gauge wire)
