    Well, after reading and learning so much from the members here I am hoping someone has some ideas??

    We tried seaching the threads and Nada so far...
    The 2014 Tacoma has fat a** sunvisors. Fatter than any other Toyota we've had here in the USA and other Countries below the border. The problem is we are unable to find a decent sunglass clip for the fat sunvisors. Even noticed this issue with shop/garage door remote.

    The one piece clips Glasshopper etc.. won't work as they do grab well, but don't need anything that requires 2 hands to assure you don't ruin sunglasses $$$, or shooting glasses $$$$$...

    Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.

    I guess your glasses don't fit in the overhead console? Might be a dumb question, but I don't know if you'd tried.

    Due to moving shrapnel in many locations I have to have special sunglasses that won't fit the overhead bins. When I need them it means "right now".
    I did finaly find a sunglasses/glasses visor clip that works! The Croakies Shade Dock Visor clip works so well that now I'm having to order 2 more for my wife's 2000 4Runner. Not for fitting fat ass sunvisors, but far faster and easier than others so far.

    Appreciate the help...

    Thanks so much! I've been casually looking for an extra sunglasses holder since I got my Tacoma in 2005. Ordered a Croakies Shade Dock Visor Clip from Amazon tonight, looks great, can't wait to use it!

    Any pictures of these "Croakies Shade Dock Visor clip" I know mine was just some cheap POS that I bent to fit on the visor.

    I've been wondering the same, but the wire fastner of the Croakies look to be the best solution to the thick sun visors of our Tacoma.

    I have the same prob with my huge shades (over-glasses). They do fit in the overhead bin, but it does not close. I just leave it open.
