They may not be the first thing that you look for when checking out the streamlined curves and gleaming paintwork of your new car, but it's well worth getting acquainted with your headlights. After all, unless you exclusively drive during sunny daylight, chances are that you'll be reaching for their activation switch more than just about anything else on the dashboard.
Without headlights, driving would be a whole lot less safe, even in weather as commonplace as light drizzle - where they can provide that little bit of extra visibility. This isn't just for you either, other cars will be able to see you much clearer if your vehicle is illuminated. It make sense then, to keep your headlights in good condition, as their position makes them vulnerable to debris kicked up from the road.
That's where headlight protectors come in, attaching in front of the glass to prevent damage. They're also incredibly easy to install, and can be easily removed for cleaning or to be replaced.
It's not just a practical decision either, headlights are expensive to replace, and even if there are no cracks, lots of small scrapes can cloud the glass and reduce the power of your beams. A far cheaper option is to simply prevent that from happening with a quality pair of headlight covers.
