For those of you with Magne Shades on your side windows...

Are you still able to open these windows? I know that some of the magnets get attached to the outside of the window and I was wondering if there was any interference.

We have the MagneShades on the windshield and front two side windows. The two side windows have magnets on the outside and we can open the drivers window (with the magnashade off) with the exception of the last 5 or 6 inches due to a magnet interfering with the window travel.

I don't consider it a problem at all as it opens about a foot or more before the magnet becomes a problem and we really enjoy the ease of the Magnashade install and removal.

yes - you can open the drivers side window if you want. I have never tried to open the passenger window with the magnashade on it, but I guess you can. Guess it depends on what kind of windows you have. We have frameless ones that just go out from the bottom. But, magnashades are only made for the front windshield and the driver/passenger and door windows.

If you give Roger the dimensions, he'll make you a shade for any window. He made me one for two parallel windows that were four feet long and 15" wide. One shade covered everything. Magnets were on the windows, which made raising them difficult, although I did raise them a little and put a piece of wood underneath.

Thanks. I'm guessing we have similar (If not the same) windows. I've made the patterns for the side windows but when I started tracing them it got me thinking what kind of interference I might have and I guess not being able to open the front side windows is not really a problem since I have so many other windows.

As it is now, During the summer I like to open the windows and turn on the fantastic fans when the early morning temps are cool so I'll just have to pick another window!

Cat320 - yes everyone at MS has been great to work with.
