I've got a pair in the sunglass holder in the overhead console. I also have a the pair I wear most often in the center console, and another pair in the glovebox. I can say that the pair in the sunglass holder seems to have gotten hot and has affected the tint. Mainly, it's bubbled the tint on my Oakely Monster Dogs, and of course they're out of warranty.

That is where I lay my sunglasses between the e brake and the middle console. With the folding side facing the ground, it stays pretty well and they dont move. Of course im not sure how well it would work if you have a Titanium.

I keep my Oakley's cased and in the center console. I haven't had any problem with them getting too hot there. I'll bet it does get pretty warm in the overhead console with the sun beating down on the roof.

I bought a twelve pack of baggies and I just hang one on the turn signal stalk. Stays up and out of the way.

I tried a visor clip, but the sunglasses hung down too low. Finally, I came up with this:

A couple of rubber self-adhesive pads from the hardware store on the top of the visor.


The glasses fold over the visor where you may normally try and store them, but the pads against the arms keep them from sliding off.



The visor is in normal position against the headliner and the glasses aren't going anywhere until I pull the visor down.



Works great!

I can't stand things hanging by my knees. I have two key rings. One for the car key. One for everything else.

That's quite crafty.

Nice idea. I would have just used the passenger visor instead. That is what I did in my old car.

Just put mine in the glove box.

Another problem is the sun visor is too fat to have my garage door opener clip on it. :[

Are you a modder or not?! Just craft something so you will be able to attach your garage door opener to it. I have faith in you!
