tape on w/s

Having been in this business longer than anyone with any sense should, I have a question that just confuses my simple mind. why do some installers put 3 or 4 strips of tape on top of both sides of the w/s they install? the tape is placed in a way that has nothing to do with holding the moulding in place. and Ive seen it done to car and trucks that I know have stops. If you do this what is your reason, and is it a good practice for all installions? Lets see some good posts so I can understand.

Re: tape on w/s

i know i do it only when there aren't stops or the stops have been broke off. otherwise i don't know of any other reason.

Re: tape on w/s

Blocks get cut,blocks dont line up,windshield sliding,alot of shields dont have blocks,better than drilling holes,no need for blocks when top set with two techs.There are alot of reasons,alot of techs do this so they know the shield will stay put until safe drive times.

Re: tape on w/s

We do it to help hold th glass in the up postion so vin # and all mouldings line back up on old lines , not all windshields are the exact same height as the orig. oem glass you pull out even if its ppg replaced with a ppg
