This is pretty neat idea.... foam rubber cut out to fit around the J1772 handle and the innards of the charge port.

The site is in french, so here's the english version w/o pictures.

A cover that prevents snow and ice from accumulating in the charging compartment of your Volt or Bolt.

The lid is retained using the door hinge and push button.

I personally thought that the BoltScreen radiator protector was a great add on.
Yep, those were the two items I ordered from this guy. Fits as advertised and just a little piece of mind for any road debris coming into the radiator.

The BoltShelf looks nice - I'd rather use that than the Chevy heavier one - but I'm still fine with the fabric flimsy one that came with the car...

Does the Bolt Screen, in any way, cut down on coolant and heating potential?
No, there are auto open/close vents down there behind the grill but the Bolt Screen is just like a chicken wire fence (but nicer) in front to keep rocks/debris from breaking in to the radiator.
Doesn't reduce airflow at all.

The 'cut to size' mesh is also surrounded by a rubberized edge keeping it from rubbing on the paint or faux grill.
It is attached with black zip ties which work quite well for this simple mod.

One caveat with the Bolt screen: the paint does wear off. It hasn't bothered me yet but one day I may add a fresh coat or if I'm truly lazy, try a few layers of plastidip cause I have so much left over after doing my emblems.
