Visor with retractable glare shields

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4728142.

An improved visor assembly for motor vehicles is disclosed which includes one or more retractable glare screens which are integrated with the visor structure such that they can be extended and retracted from the visor as needed. The glare screens are preferably made from a transparent tinted material which reduces the intensity of bright lights or glare which the driver may be exposed to. The glare screens are guided for retracting movement through using slot followers which travel in elongated guide slots formed by the visor center board member. Clearance slots are formed along the perimeter edge of the visor by using elongated reinforcement members. The visor according to this invention can be produced economically and enables the glare screens to be extended and retracted without binding.
