The New DAS Screw-in Windshield Modification Kit allows the operator to replace the existing OEM windshield retainers with quick change out retainers. While the OEM retainers are riveted in place and are difficult and time consuming to replace, the DAS kit provides durable retainers that are screwed in place and that can be easily removed to allow for quick windshield replacement or removal. After initial installation of the modification kit, windshields can be removed or installed in less than 2 hours per side.
· Compatible with OEM, AAI and Tech Tool windshields
· Easy removal and replacement of windshields
“The convenience of being able to change out a windshield in the less than two hours means that every operator should be ordering this kit whenever they need to change a windshield.” Quote, Bill Beckett, VP Canadian Operations, Dart Aerospace Ltd. (DAS). He went on to say “Customers have been asking for this for a while and we are pleased to provide them with a solution.”
