    StowAway Exhaust Shield

    The StowAway Exhaust Shield is exclusively designed to deflect engine exhaust away from the back of your StowAway Cargo Carrier. The correct installation of an exhaust heat deflector helps eliminate potential exhaust heat damage to your cargo carrier.

    If your vehicle's exhaust pipe points at or directly below your StowAway Cargo Carrier, we highly recommend adding an exhaust shield.


    All of the necessary hardware is included. If you have a Fixed Frame, you'll need to mount the exhaust shield directly to the cargo box.

    The exhaust shields are a great attachment for any vehicle with rear exit exhaust and even though they require some additional effort to attach to an already existing setup, the exceptional customer service makes it well worth it. Best customer service in any market in today's society comes directly from StowAway Cargo Carriers without a doubt!


    Exhaust shields worked well. Could have been made of a little heavier metal

    Passenger Side Exhaust Shield

    • quality%20price
    • self-tapping%20drilling

    I received the product and since I had already assembled the StowAway carrier previously, I had to remove it from the frame prior to installing the exhaust shield. Once the carrier was removed, I marked and drilled the holes as noted in the directions. I then mounted the shield and attempted to tighten it to the frame using the self-tapping screws provided. However, this proved to be a futile attempt since the screws would not self-tap fully, only inserting into the frame partly. I remedied this by removing the screws and adding lock washers and then tightening the screws as much as possible. It would seem to me that these holes should be pre-drilled and tapped on both the driver and passenger side of the frame at the factory. If they are not used, no harm but it would make it much easier for the user by having them already predrilled/tapped.

    Exhaust Shield Review


    Installation was easy according the directions. Just make sure you have the proper tools and it should only take 15 minutes.

    With spending $700 for the stow away cargo carrier, it only makes sense to purchase the exhaust shields to protect my investment. They were easy to install as you have to have some knowledge of how to use a drill, but other than that, no issues and compact enough to be "out of the way".
