I bought one of these kits to fix a stone chip. The package states it is only good for one repair but don't let that fool you folks. If you don't over use the resin you can get 4-5 repairs out of one kit. The directions tell you to use 3/4 of the resin tube on a chip but if you do that it will ooze down the windshield like a river. Also the sticky pad, plunger, curing sheet etc can be used multiple times. This product works well, is only $10 and the directions are easy to follow. I ended up fixing three chips and could have done more had I not overused the resin. Instead of paying $25 per chip to have it repaired by a glass company, try this first.
Works great and a lot cheaper than having a windshield guy come out and repair a little chip. If you can read and have common sense, you can successfully use this kit.
This product sealed the chip on my windshield, and it is not so noticeable anymore. The instructions were clear, and there was more than enough resin in the tube, so I could have repaired several chips.
I bought this kit to repair a chip in my van's windshield. The "tool" you use to clean out the pit is a cheap push pin. The steps are easy enough to follow. But on step 8 where you depress the plunger, the entire pedestal popped off the adhesive seal and sprayed resin all over the windshield and myself. Then the tip on the plunger snapped off inside the pedestal. Can't finish the job nor undo steps 1-7. I will probably have to have this professionally redone. What a waste of money.
followed all instructions to the letter - I still have a noticable cresent in my windshield. I was lucky that I cleaned my windshield the day of the pebble strike and place some clear tape over the chip to keep debris out till I could fix it.
The resin I scraped off of the windshield when I was finished; was the consistancy of silicone sealant - Not epoxy! I may upgrade this rating; if this stuff prevents a crack from walking across my windshield over the winter months.
Followed directions to a T - went well, takes about 1 hour to do the job, small mark still left, but glass is smooth to the touch. For $10, works fine.
I applied this product as directed. Improved the damage a small amount. I had hoped it would at least stop it from spreading, but it started to spread so I took the vehicle to a professional. Because I had used the kit, they were unable to help me much as the kit had gummed up the damage so their resin could not get where it needed to go. Before I took the car to a pro, I had emailed Glass Star asking if doing the kit twice might help. That was about two weeks ago and never got a response, so product support by mfg for consumers appears to be zero. Kit cost around $10 - the pro charges $25. If you cannot swing the extra $15 or so, go with this, but not otherwise.
I've used other kits before, this one was the worse. Don't waste your money.
The same product is sold at Walmart for $10. The only change is the package. Overpriced and the information provided is not accurate.
