Wiper Shaker Wiper De-icer

I don't know if it works as good as advertised but I'll find out and report back

It looks to me like to out of balance motors attached to the wiper blades that break the ice off. Hopefully it works because I could've used them a couple dozen times last winter.

That's a great question! One I don't know the answer to yet. Been dragging my feet about getting it. I still hope to get it in before the snow flies but I guess I better get on it!

And, I still plan to report back when I get it installed.

I don't remember how many threads I posted in about this but I'll try to post back on all of them. If not, I'll definitely update my write up with a full report.

Wiper Shaker

Hi Everyone: Caught your reference to the SHAKER Wiper De-icer, so thought we'd take the time to provide a product descritpion. Firstly, feel free to visit us on the web where you can view FAQ's (everyone we've ever been asked), Demo's, testimonials etc. In one of the comments, someone indicated that they were hoping the SHAKER would "break the wipers out of ice" - here to tell you, thats not what the SHAKER is designed for.

The SHAKER is pretty simple in how it works, so I'll keep the answer simple.


The patented, innovative SHAKER simply clamps onto a vehicle's existing wiper arm / blade assembly. Once activated, from inside the vehicle, the tiny, yet powerful SHAKER induces a momentary vibration to help rid the wiper blade of trapped frozen debris that could otherwise cause windshield streaking and thus, impair a driver's vision. While activated, the SHAKER will cause a moving wiper blade to "skip" ~ 1/16th" off the windshield - it is this skipping effect that allows the wiper blade to deal with the trapper frozen build-up. Note: The SHAKER is a Wiper Blade De-icer for in journey usage. So, it is not a windshield de-cier and thus you still need to start your journey with a clean windshield and clean flexible wiper blade. Once into your journey, should your wiper blade encounter any trapped frozen debris, simply activate the SHAKER for a few seconds. The SHAKER is a proven technology of choice, that has been used for years by professional drivers, e.g., U.S. and Canadian Highway Snow Plow departments etc. Professional drivers know how effective the SHAKER is in the toughest winter conditions. You can check out various testimonials etc. from our website.

If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. If its possible to let your forum colleagues know about SHAKER, many thanks.

Mike Kelly.

Ok... just now I single-handedly put an end to all the snow & ice in WV for this winter. I did this by finally getting around to ordering the wiper shaker kit which means I'll install it and then not have one single opportunity to try it until next winter.

I'll keep everyone posted on it...........

I believe it was the PT-1290. I borrowed it from a buddy.

Those symbols aren't there. I found most of the symbols on the web someplace and used photoshop to make them the right size. Then I installed the software (free from p-touch I think?) to connect the label maker to my PC. In that software, you can bring in the images and then print them to the label maker. It was definitely a convoluted procedure.

Here's a good source of symbols. From the Carling data sheets...
http://www.carlingtech.com/pdf/vl_serswitlegends.pdf

You might contact Clay at riff raff ("Riffraff Performance" on here), he sells these switches and can engrave symbols on them. He offered to do mine if I mailed them to him, even though I didn't buy them from him. For a fee of course but it might be worth it. It will probably be cheaper than buying a label maker and the 3/4" tape.

Here's a link to check out...
Riffraff Diesel: Riffraff Custom Auto Dash Kit

Looks like actuator engraving is an additional $20 right now. Hope this helps!

Haha... well we've had light snow for the past three days but its been real fluffy so no chance to test them yet...

In order to not keep bumping this thread, I started a new thread in the SD forum that I'll update....
