I just bought some winter blades , made by AAnco and I am P.O.ed .
They would not lock on to the arms.
I needed wipers , and where I work we have a variety of glues so I glued them on , so far so good.

What ever the blue & yellow package is. Not the "el cheapo" but not $20 each. Two sets a year per vehicle normally.

I replace mine yearly, or as needed before that. I have found that the "Rain-X" wipers, along with either the additive for your system, or the "Rain-X" included type Gallon jug is the best. But I NEVER put anything but PURE Windshield Washer Fluid in the reservoir!!!! NEVER WATER! I rarely have any Freeze-up problem in the cold WISCONSIN Winters that way. If you go to an oil change place, make sure they don't put any water in it either. I have used TRICO blades, and ANCO blades, but i usually wait for a sale. I have 6 vehicles to buy for.

I just bought some refills from Fleet Farm. Only place I could find refills to keep my stock stainless blades.
