TRICO Encourages Routine Vehicle Maintenance With Reminder For Drivers To ‘Change Your Clocks, Change Your Blades’

As the fall season kicks into high gear and Daylight Savings Time ends on November 1, TRICO encourages drivers to use the time change as a reminder to inspect and replace their wiper blades.

“Clear vision is essential to safe driving and changing your wiper blades regularly should be part of a standard vehicle maintenance routine,” said Dawn Gonzalez, brand manager at Trico Products Corporation. “Our bi-annual ‘Change Your Clocks, Change Your Blades’ campaign is a reminder to drivers to take safety into their own hands and be proactive about preparing for upcoming harsh winter weather.”

It takes a tough wiper blade to hold up to the slush, snow and ice that Old Man Winter throws at your windshield. TRICO recommends that drivers purchase the TRICO Ice blade, designed to provide maximum performance in extreme winter weather driving conditions. TRICO Ice is designed to conform to the windshield for even distribution across the blade to clear away snow and ice buildup. The ruggedly constructed armor protects the blade from severe weather, yet allows blade flexibility for a low-profile contour to maximize line of sight. The wiper element, designed to resist tearing and ripping in sub-zero temperatures, is infused with Teflon surface protector for a smoother, quieter wipe. Additionally, a SWIFT “one click” connection system is integrated into the wiper design for quick installation, which is much more critical in cold, icy weather.
