"Tint-Chek +" Window Tint Meter

Measure VLT or Visible Light Transmission (Transmittance) of automotive glass and any glass/film up to 1/4" or 6.5mm thick.  The TC2800 has several advantages over existing tint meters in the marketplace and upgrades that set it apart from our TC1800 model.  


Made in the USA, unlike Competing Models

The TC2800 is rugged and made with quality components that will last years.  This meter is ideal for police and installers, or go with the two-piece TC3800 for windshield and rear-window testing.  If you have any questions, pick up the phone and call us.

Backlit LCD Display (Exclusive to TC2800 and TC3800)

Backlighting is very helpful when using the meter in darker environments.  It is especially beneficial when used in the evening, overcast days, or indoors.  Most competing models do not offer a backlit display option which prevents windows from easily being tested at night.  With the Tint-Chek +, windows can be tested at any time of day, and the results can be easily seen.  The TC2800 is the only product on the market with a backlit display.

Increased Resolution (Exclusive to TC2800 and TC3800)

The TC2800 displays measurements to the nearest 0.1%.  This will remove the rounding errors that can occur with lower-cost models.  For instance, a window may have a VLT value of 39.5%, which could be less accurately rounded up to 40% on competing devices that only show the results to the nearest 1%.  Choose the TC2800 for the best accuracy through its improved resolution.

No Mechanical Lever Switches

The Tint-Chek + is designed with no moving parts, which results in tremendous reliability and durability.  This also means you can slide the glass into the opening in any direction with no concern for damaging the lever switch or scratching the surface of the glass being tested.  


All Digital, Micro-Processor Controlled Electronics

The TC2800 takes high-speed measurements shown on the real-time display.  No drifting of values, as the TC2800 locks on one accurate result.  The instrument will also turn itself off after several minutes of non-use, which helps conserve battery power.

Built for Accuracy and Reliability

The TC2800 uses clever patent-pending techniques to remove ambient light conditions that may change in the testing environment.  For instance, stray headlights and cloud cover have been known to negatively impact the performance of older VLT meters on the market today.  The meter comes from the factory calibrated to a NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology - The U.S. government's standards agency) traceable standard.


More Convenient Size

The overall size of the product is only 5" x 2.5" x 1". Most existing models on the market are as big as 6" x 3.5" x 1.5" or larger.  This reduction in size makes the product easier to carry, handle and store.  The TC2800 is so thin it fits comfortably into a shirt pocket.  It also makes the device easier to slip around the tight edges of a car window that does not open as far.

Included Accessories:

  • Protective Carrying Case
  • Two NIST Traceable Calibration Standards
  • 9-volt Alkaline Battery - so it's ready to take measurements right out of the box
