Is the Cool Cap® hard to use?
No, a Standard or Cockpit throws over a car very easily. We put them on in about 20 seconds. The larger units are a bit more work, but the pay off is huge... your car stays cool and protected. To take them off you just release the straps and/or hooks and pull it off the roof and crumble/fold it into your arms. We just throw them into our trunks or rear cargo areas. If our mom can do it with no problem, you can too!

Is the Cool Cap® Waterproof?
Yes! No problem leaving them out in the rain – water shakes right off them.
Are the Cool Cap's® Breathable? All the other car covers tout breathability
Car Covers are a pain! They are big and bulky and they don’t block heat. Sun Shades don’t work! That’s why we invented the Cool Cap®. The car cover industry touts breathability – but they use fabrics designed to protect cars, not block heat. Modern car paints don’t need the protection – but your car’s interior does! Breathable fabrics allow heat to penetrate to the interior of a car. Lighter color fabrics help, but not much. Our mirror-like Reflectionite Fabric® is non-breathable and waterproof. It won’t let the heat in and it won’t become a soggy mess. And since it only covers the roof and windows, they are way easier to use than cumbersome car covers! Yuck! Watch this video!
How does the cool cap® stay on your car?
Velcro mirror straps, soft hook tabs sewn alone the edge of the Cool Cap®. The tail, locks into the trunk for sedans. Every Cool Cap® comes with three (3) bendable soft hooks. See this video.
If you are worried about theft, which we none of our customers have ever complained about, we sell a nice little rubber-coated retractable cable lock. You can also pull out a sharpie and just write your license plate number on it.
Jimmy, how often do you use your Cool Cap®?
I hate getting into a hot car, so I throw my Pickup Size Cool Cap® over my F150 Crew Cab all the time... even if I am just running into the store. It takes me about 15 seconds to put on, less than 10 to take off. If you have a sedan or a sports car its really easy to use it the way I do – because it’s fast and the protection is amazing. For the larger vehicles it’s a bit more work, so those customers tend to use their Cool Cap's® when they are parking for a bit longer. Some of our customers leave them on their parked cars 24/7 – which is not a problem, since the air circulates pretty freely underneath the units. Extra car in the driveway, airport parking, construction site,that baking parking lot at the office – perfect places to use a Cool Cap®.
How long will my Cool Cap® last?
Use it on and off the car and you'll get a few seasons out of your unit. The Cool Cap® is waterproof, but exposure to rain repeatedly and 24/7 use will shorten the products useful lifespan. However, in typical on/off use, customers can expect to get at least two seasons of use out of their Cool Cap®, and often more. Put anything out in the sun and it is going to eventually dry up, crack, fall apart. The same goes for a Cool Cap®. Better the Cool Cap® than the interior of your car! A Cool Cap® costs about as much as cheap pair of running shoes, and just like the shoes... when your Cool Cap® wears out.... you simply replace it.

Can you really cook eggs on a car?
