I like this car ice scraper. You do need to reach a bit more but I have a Mitsubishi Mirage so it's somewhat small. I live in Springfield and we had a snowfall and ice storm lately. This product was really useful. It truly does get rid of the ice and cleans it up much better than the long-handled thing and to be honest, I employed both. I had my long-handled ice scraper which I have made use of for many years though, granted, not on this car as it is currently but I don't think it would have made a big difference. I was cold and snowing so I didn't stop to take pictures but I'm sincere in my evaluations and I liked this. If you have arthritis or a condition that makes reaching difficult or if you have a massive vehicle, it might not work. I just know it functioned great on my vehicle and I will be purchasing more for Chanukah and Christmas gifts... Mine delivered 10 days. I'm very pleased and strongly recommend it for at least average-sized cars.
I don't know how I find this magical product thing, but I am happy that I did. I used to utilize (like everyone else) the standard flat blade ice scraper with the sharp edges by the end of the flat blade. I never ever liked this due to the fact that those sharp-edged corners would dig into and damage the rubber around my windshield. I often had to beware not to jam the blade against the rubber. BUT, with these amazing round scrapers, there is no sharp edge and I can just go in wild circles using this product and get the ice off my windows. Very awesome idea.
