Would these work for the rear end as well?

  • Hi Jonlucas, Yes it would work. The thing to remember is are you pulling up to curbs etc ... like the front end? I thought about the same safty aspects but then realized that the corners are potentially the most nicked up for me in the rear I then found multi sensor kits to cover the corners, for me the $ was a little hard to swallow. I then realized a camera was the way to go for me. You'll need to examine your needs & go the rout that serves you best. Hope this helps. H.T.

What kind of range does this thing have . I'm not talking about distance but rather height or width, like for instance another car or a back garage wall? Of course the height range is the one that interests me most.

  • How this Sensor works: 1] It has a very narrow horizontal band (left to right) for detection of an object. Only straight ahead; like another car, wall or curb. 2] Sensor's ability to send a signal and wait its return is probably limited to perhaps 3'. 3] It can not detect or effectively detect narrow vertical objects such as a light pole. 4] Where you mount it determines its "field-of-view" of a target. If its mounted on the bottom of your car (front or back) it will detect a curb or any wide object depending upon the Sensor's angle but not safely beyond 3'. If its mounted (Example) on the front edge of your hood as a reference, it will detect a car's rear end or a wall if its within 3' or less. 5] False feedback signals seem common; such as a sudden glare reflection. Random alerts seem problematic. 6] Keep the Sensor clean or false signals will be common.

Wall detection? I'm wondering if this sensor would only detect curbs, or would it also detect walls just fine? I was planning to use it for reverse parking since it was mentioned that it would also work on the back end.

    Great peace of mind

    April 26, 2012

    Installed this a few weeks ago and it's a great system. I only ran the speaker in the cab of the car and hooked the module up to the battery and mounted the module next to the fuse box under the hood of our '12 GT. I ran the speaker with across the firewall and into the foil rap around the sound tube area. Doing it this way was really easy. To hide the speaker wire I in cased it with 1/8th wire loom so you don't even know its there. One word of caution. Our car is not used in the winter and the battery is on a battery maintainer all the time. If you have your car on one of these maintainers you'll want to put Mini switch on the curb alert ground with and turn it off when attaching the maintainer because the curb alert will not turn it's self off hooked up to the maintainer because it still sees battery voltage. Love this curb alert!

    front end sensor works great

    April 18, 2013

    install took 30 mins easy to do. came with everything you need . so far everything working the way it should. you do have to clean the sensor if it gets to dirty. so far on reg roads in the rain it has worked fine. would work better if it had 2 front sensors for off center parking curbs. will not pick up curb if it is not dead in front of the sensor.

    Needed a little help to calibrate

    May 05, 2012

    Don't know what I missed in the calibration directions, but I had to contact Curb Alert for help. Thankfully, Bill got right back to me. His instructions (below) were all the help I needed. The sensor has to be aimed at an object to calibrate the distance alert. Suggest you place a larger box in front of the sensor and then press the red calibration button (I did this with the car running). You should then hear two beeps or a constant tone (but the sensor has to be aimed at an object to reflect the signal). You have just calibrated the distance. (now I turn off the car). Then allow the car to sit for 10 minutes with the engine off. (now I turn on the car again). Then adjust the sensor angle until you hear the distance alert when you slide the box forward toward the front of the car into your set alert distance. These notes (plus my comments) worked perfectly. Thank you Bill!! My install was a 2011 GT. The mount was below the license plate toward the back. The path through the firewall is along-side the sound tube. I used the spare connector in the center console (referred to as the convertible plug) and I plugged into the white wire with the blue line (which is on when the engine is running). Thanks again Bill!

    An Alert for Dummies

    November 24, 2012

    The bottom of my front fascia looks like I drove the car in a trash collection facility. Very form of minor damage can be seen; so I decided to purchase the Curb Alert and install it prior to having the car's fascia finish restored. Works like a charm for Curbs but will not detect vertical sign posts probably because they are too thin. Mine is set to alert me when I am 10" from the Curb. For Dummies like me, this product will probably pay for itself.

    Great Product

    July 07, 2013

    I purchased this product as soon as I purchased a new chin spoiler as I thought they would go well together. This product works great! The sensor was easy to calibrate and it beeps quite loudly when I pull near a curb (loud enough to hear over music). The only downside is that the instructions are poor quality. Also, one other thing I would change for anyone else who buys this- I would connect the sensor to an ignition-controlled power line that way the sensor turns off when you turn off the car. Otherwise the sensor will continue to beep even after the car is turned off for 20 minutes (it shuts off after that).

    A little front bumper insurance

    April 17, 2012

    The curb alert was easy to install on my car. I opted to put it under the air opening, and not under the lowest part of my Roush fascia. I think if you put it under the lowest point of the bumper and did accidentally scrub while going through a dip you would break it and/or lose it. I would recommend trying to find a place that absolutely will not get hit. Adjusting the sensor was a little tricky, or so I thought. I adjusted it as recommended and I thought, "there is no way this is going to work", but it did. It always stops me before I grind the curb.

    good product

    May 23, 2014

    This product works well but was a little time consuming to install on my 2006 mustang GT. You have to remove the passenger side inner fender well to access the grommet to feed the wires through. My intent was to connect to a ignition wire but ended up connecting directly to the battery after consulting with the manufacturer. Calibrating was easy. It works well now. Sometimes it will beep when going in or out of sons inclined driveways.

    No More Carbon Fiber Disasters

    March 18, 2014

    Ok it's a little hard to hear, but with the stereo off there is no doubt. But it works and I wish I would have bought this alarm 4, yes 4, spoilers ago. I had it professionally installed as my tech Ken at CarCrafters in Albuquerque told me that he was gonna quit installing spoilers on my GT 500 unless I did. It has gone off once going through a considerable dip but it for sure reminds me when road surfaces are dangerous to my chin spoiler. It's not irritating, it's a good thing! Buy it!

    Can't complain, very simple install, really worth it having only 5 inches of Clearance and there being alot of parking curbs and such where I live. Gives you a great reminder of your low bumper is when pulling into parking stalls.
