Interior use or exterior? You can find interior ones in Wally world bathroom section cheap but they don't stick unless your window is real clean and then tend to slide with excess weight. I got a pair of small suction tiedowns from a local window installer that was going out of business. They are the size of a silver dollar and when you fold the handle down they provide "forever" suction

My interior sunscreen came with some heavy duty velcro. Six or eight 1 inch patches high enough to be in sunblock window tint. A strip of the opposite velco sewn across the top of the sunscreen. After installation you can start one side and stick all the way across in 30 - 60 seconds depending on how fat you are.

I use the interior RVQuickShades and really like them. They mount with suction cups that have a pin in the center. The pin goes through the fabric and into the suction cup shank.

The suction cups will generally hold on for about a month before having to push them back tight to the glass. Really good ones.

Here's a link to the cups:
