Is your worry that the tape will fail? I had some stick-ons on my S10 P/U that I installed in 2003/04, and they were both firmly in place when I sold it this year.Can they damage the window gasket or window motor? I also dislike stick on rain guards for outside installation because of the 3M double sided tape. Do you have any experience with the in channel ones and is it OK with the CRV?
I am not concerned about the deflector. I care about the car door and the damage it could make to the window seals and the motor.You can't go wrong with Weathertech's In-channel window deflectors, as they guarantee a precise fit and comfortable ventilation. We sell them for more than 8 years and never really had any issues with this brand.

1991 non-Honda vehicle - installed Weathertech's shortly after purchase. No window seal problems when I sold it in 1999 (8 years installed, non-power windows).I am not concerned about the deflector. I care about the car door and the damage it could make to the window seals and the motor.
I installed the Lund Elites on my 2018 and they fit but did not stay in place. I returned them. The reviews on the AVS ventshades are that they are problematic. I have had in channel ventshades on 2 vehicles and jad no problems. One set I had on my Equinox for 8 years. Want to see what Weathertech comes out with (hopefully) for the 2018 CRv. I have Weathertechs on my 2015 Accord and had a rear tab break in a few months. I was given a whole new set and have had no problems.
