Glasses Clip for the Tesla Model S

If you've ever wanted a convenient place to hang your sunglasses, driving glasses or reading glasses, GlassesClip is the perfect solution. The form factor is small, subtle, and unobtrusive in your Model S interior. This simple, strong, and inconspicuous black plastic clip slips under and into the front center speaker housing in the headliner of your Model S, providing a convenient place to put your glasses. Simple-to-install (and quickly remove), the GlassesClip provides a sleek solution to a common driver's problem—where to put your glasses.

IMPORTANT NOTE: GlassesClip will fit properly in all Model S configurations delivered before December 1, 2014. Some, but not all, Model S's delivered after that date have a different speaker housing design that cannot accommodate GlassesClip. Before, you order GlassesClip, see either our Specification tab or our FAQ tab to find out how to determine whether GlassesClip will fit your Model S.

FAQ

Will Flasses Clip fit my specific Model S?

GlassesClip will fit properly in all Model S configurations delivered before December 1, 2014.

If the card can be inserted about 0.75 inches (19 mm) before hitting an obstruction, GlassesClip will fit your Model S.

Why can't I use the cubby or center space to store my glasses?

You can, but the lens surface of most glasses is prone to scratching. When you hang your glasses using GlassesClip, only the nose piece touches another material, so your lens surfaces remains clear and unscratched. Also, your glasses are always within easy reach.

Are any tools, adhesives, or screws needed to install GlassesClip?

None!  GlassesClip installation is very simple and requires less than 30 seconds. See the 'Instructions' tab for more information.

Is it easy to remove GlassesClip?

Yes, removal takes about 10 seconds. If you choose to do so, you can store GlassesClip in your glove box or Center Console Insert and use it only as needed, but GlassesClip is so unobtrusive, it’s likely you’ll just leave it in place.

Can I put more than one pair of glasses on GlassesClip at a time?

GlassesClip is designed to hold a single pair of glasses. 

Do all types of glasses (and sunglasses) work on GlassesClip?

Because of the small, light, and inconspicuous form factor of GlassesClip, some glasses will work better than others. To that end, if (for instance) you have bigger, heavy sunglasses you may experience some issues with fitment.

What material is used to make GlassesClip?

GlassesClip is laser cut from 1/16" (1.6mm) ABS plastic—an extremely strong material.

Is there any possibility of GlassesClip damaging the headliner or speaker enclosure.

Not really. As long as you follow the simple installation instructions and take care as you hang your glasses, there is little chance of any damage.

Can I get GlassesClip in a different color?

No, GlassesClip is available only in black. We chose black because every model S interior emphasizes black in the dash and steering wheel area. However, if you really want another color, ABS plastic can be spray painted to any color you choose.

How long does it take to receive my GlassesClip?  

You can expect delivery in 1 to 2 weeks via USPS.

Does GlassesClip ship to international destinations?  

Yes, we ship the GlassesClip internationally using USPS.  For more information check out our Shipping and Fulfillment page.

Usage Notes

1.  We've found that placing your glasses in GlassesClip with the bridge (top of the frame) facing forward is the best way to secure your glasses and protect the lenses.

2.  Because we designed GlassesClip for easy installation with no tools and no adhesive, it may move just a bit as you use it repeatedly. Putting it back into place requires a simple nudge.

*EVannex® is not responsible for any damage to the headliner or speaker housing that occurs as a consequence of GlassesClip installation or from the weight of hanging items other than glasses from GlassesClip.
