How To Install A TAC Visor: A Step-by-Step Guide

The TAC visor is a new design from TAC visors that improves night vision for drivers. The visor is a tinted replacement part that easily installs over the factory visor. It can be installed in minutes—no tools needed. You pop off your existing visor, put the TAC visor in its place, and stare through it. The design allows you to see everything going on around you outside of your vehicle, except you won't be able to see the TAC visor's tint.

When you first buy a TAC-VISOR, you'll need to decide if the installation process is easy or hard. You may want a TAC visor with an integrated receiver, but the installation may require removing a heavy clamp or adaptor first. Then you'll be better off with a TAC visor with no integrated receiver.

The TAC-VISOR is a mechanical device that requires maintenance to keep it working properly. If there's something wrong with your visor, you'll need to visit an auto repair shop to replace it. A break or fatigue or any damage may lead to problems like torn visors, which could adversely affect night vision.

Determine what type of TacVisor you have

Make sure your car has a power outlet for the GPS and monitors installed on your vehicle. Check the voltage of the outlet and be sure that it is 20 amps or more significant. The TAC visor needs to be wired to an electronic system with the correct voltage for it to operate. Make sure your GPS unit is on a battery charger. If your GPS battery dies, you're out of luck.

The installation guide will explain the battery connection as well. Always have working tail lights before installing the TAC visor; you will need to ensure that your tail lights work correctly. If the taillights have dimming bulbs, you will need to replace them with brighter ones. If they have fog lights, you will need to change the bulbs out.

How To Install A TAC Visor

  1. Pull off the side of the visor and take out the TAC visor. 
  2. Cut out the TAC visor using a razor blade. The blade should go through the visor in one quick cut. 
  3. Put the visor back into place, and the tint will go on your window tint. 
  4. Install the TAC visor. You can apply it to your existing unit using the included double-sided adhesive. It may take a few attempts to get the TAC visor exactly where you want it. The TAC visor is tapered at both ends, and a screw goes in the middle of the TAC visor for stability. 
  5. Repeat steps one and two with your other side of the visor.

Tips On How To Get The Perfect Fit

Using the tape measure, measure the length of your head from ear to ear and then measure the length from your chin to the top of your head.

Step 1: Remove the Existing Visor

The first step in installing the TAC visor is removing the current visor. To do this, you must be equipped with all the proper tools. The visor must be removed entirely to pull out the TAC visor fasteners. This isn't as hard as it may seem. However, there are still a couple of points to keep in mind. If you are applying the TAC visor yourself, wear protective eyewear such as safety glasses.


If you are replacing the visor, follow these instructions on how to remove the TAC visor fastener. Remove the visor bolts one at a time by using a small flathead screwdriver and metal oxide heater (NOH) or a flame. Remove the TAC visor fasteners from the factory visor and then install the new ones.

Step 2: Remove the TAC Visor from the Package

The TAC visor comes with a thick plastic case that houses the tinted TAC visor. Remove the plastic case. It's used to help keep the TAC visor clean. The TAC visor will come with a new plastic case with a threaded center to ensure the tinted TAC visor can go on securely. It's so simple, and you'll wonder how you ever put on a tinted TAC visor without the TAC visor.

Step 3: Plug the TAC Sublimation Connector into Your Vehicle

The TAC sublimation connector is the part that is installed at the bottom of your car. To get it installed, you can do this yourself. We suggest hiring a professional if you need help. You will need to remove the cables that connect the defroster, power steering, and power brakes.

Step 4: Position the TAC Visor

This is where your sunglasses come in handy. Although you can still look through the TAC visor, the tint is slightly smaller than that of your stock visor. This ensures that the tint covers the whole area of your car, regardless of the color of the tint. With this video, the tint covers the entire driver's side of the vehicle and does not extend to the passenger side.


The tint can be as low as 10 to 20 percent. If you don't need the tint to the bottom of the visor, that's fine. Just make sure that it's low enough that it doesn't shine through from the back of your car. If it's not low enough, you may need to tint the rest of the back window or your mirrors. The tint will not be as bright as a sun visor or even a cat-eye style.

Step 5: Install the TAC Visor

You'll want to use clear packing tape over the top of the TAC visor to keep the adhesive from flaking off. And make sure that your new TAC visor is facing the same direction as your factory visor. (It should face up, but you can flip the visor over if you need to.). You also need to ensure that the TAC visor is properly sealed and fully supported when installed over the factory visor.


Make sure you tighten the screws down. It's also important that you get the visor in place exactly where you want it. It's easy to place the TAC visor in its proper spot when you view it from a safe distance. If you try to put it at an angle or to the left, it will always pull into your field of view.

Step 6: Reattach the Visor

To reattach your visor, start by removing the pins that hold it in place. Using a small pair of pliers, grab each pin and separate it from the visor. Using the pin ends as a guide, grip the back of the visor and slowly rotate it until it snaps back into place. Make sure it doesn't pop off in the middle, and bend your visor. Make sure you don't look directly at the visor for over 30 seconds before doing this.

Step 7: Assembling TAC-VISOR

The last step is to assemble the TAC-VISOR. Turn the visor over and with a wooden block, align the hinge pins with the holes in the visor and reinforce them to break while driving. Use two handpieces to hold the hinges in place and align them with the original screws.

Step 8: Ensure the TAC Visor is in the Correct Position

When installing the TAC visor, you need to ensure that it is installed in the correct location. This way, you won't experience any eye strain or eye damage. If you have 20/40 vision, you should not install the TAC visor right in front of your vision; instead, it should be placed above it. If you don't, you may risk a severe eye strain, which can affect your vision.

Step 9: Adjust Your TAC Visor

Once you've installed the TAC visor, you can't just forget about it. After all, it is a replacement part. When you are done setting the camera to the perfect tilt angle, you should adjust the camera's angle of view. This involves shifting the TAC visor up or down, depending on your height. It is essential to do this carefully.

Step 10: Clean the TAC Visor

After installing the TAC visor, wipe it down with some soap and water to make sure it is clean. For best results, please put it in your cupboard to dry completely. If you don't do this, the TAC visor will not work correctly. 

Step 11: Clean Your Fenders

Since the visor is tinted, it needs a tinted protective film on its rims.

Step 12: How To Use the TAC Visor

Turn on the headlights and interior lights. Get ready to scan. First, get in your vehicle and put on the TAC visor. The visor requires a good seal between you and the mirror. It is effortless to achieve this, and the TAC visor comes with pre-molded gaskets that fit together. Slide the mirror into the housing that is on the visor. Place the TAC visor inside your vehicle; make sure the windows are all down, and all the doors are closed.

Before you install a TAC visor, there are a few things to consider. 

1. How to adjust the TAC visor Before you fit a TAC visor into your vehicle, you need to ensure that the tint you choose will fit. When you're installing the TAC visor, you will see whether it will fit in different positions. You should test fit it to your head to determine the best position. If it doesn't include a particular position, upgrade to a tint of higher quality. Sometimes the TAC visor is adjustable up to 20 mm (0.8 inches), but you need to make sure that you're going with the right tint. 

2. Don't forget the best practice. Make sure that you keep your TAC visor clean. This includes removing any of the dust and debris that's left on it after using it.
