static window tint

i bought a sun screen that fits at the top of the windshield to reduce glare. all you do is clean the window,trim to fit & install. over the years i`ve done about 8 of these but this 1 WONT stay in place! it`s been in about 5 weeks. i`ve recleaned the area, took my time installing but this POS strip just keeps falling off !
anyone ever correct this/have this trouble ? suggestions? thanks.

Fast Ford. I know nothing about this myself but my youngest boy just called and he did this part time for 4 years while in college.
He said there was either silicone on the windshield from road or rainx and regular window cleaner will not take off, he said they used ammonia for that reason.
But here nor there he said the strip will only stick once and thats why it keeps coming off.
Hopefully we are talking about the same thing??!!

i think we talking about the same thing. this is a 4" strip of window tint installed on the inside of the windshield. they are sold at most auto stores,some have designs or logos on them. the instructions state the window must be clean & at 70 degree temp or less. it sticks by static, can be removed & reinstalled. as i said before this is not my first time doing this but this 1 WILL NOT stay up. from day 1 this strip has slowly peeled itself off, sometimes starting at the corners or at the center,top or bottom. it just wont stay. the bad part is , i trashed the receipt & packaging when i installed this so i cant return it. it was only $8.00 but it really ticks me off that it wont stay in place. i guess i`ll have to bite the bullet & try another 1. thanks.
