VIN Etch Events
Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union Insurance Services and Safelite AutoGlass partner throughout the year to offer members free VIN etching events.
VIN etching is a powerful theft deterrent that takes only minutes to perform, but can save you thousands of dollars. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, "Etching the vehicle identification number onto the window of a car discourages thieves from taking the vehicle." Your car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) is acid-etched into the corner of the glass on your vehicle, thus preventing a thief from altering the number in any way.
Trained auto glass professionals perform the VIN etching by applying a mild acid gel to the windshield and windows. While the gel requires care during the application process, it is safe when dry on vehicle windows.
When available, registration for VIN etch events can be found in the Events area on the homepage of our website.
