INDUSTRY STANDARD: "Tint-Chek PRO" Window Tint Meter (Two Piece 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 TC3800 has several advantages over existing two piece tint meters in the marketplace.


Made in the USA, unlike Competing Models

The TC3800 is rugged and made with quality components that will last years.  If you have any questions, pick up the phone and call us.

Two-Piece Unit (Exclusive to TC3800)

The two-piece design allows for testing of windshield tint, rear window tint and side window tint.  The Reflector Unit does not contain any electronics and houses the reflector and magnets to help align the two enclosures for measurements.  The Instrument Unit contains all of the electronics.  A single, extremely long-lasting, 9-volt alkaline battery powers the electronics.

Convenient Size and Effortless Results

The product's overall size is only 5.1" x 2.6" x 2.0".  This unit is the perfect size for your hand, allowing for single-hand operation without fumbling with units that are too small or too large.

The TC3800 is the easiest unit on the market, with 3 easy to use steps.  Step One: Push the Power Button.  Step Two: Place on the Window.  Step Three: Press the Power Button.  Now the results are at your fingertips!

All Digital, Micro-Processor Controlled Electronics

The TC3800 takes high-speed measurements shown on the real-time display.  No drifting of values, as the TC3800 locks on one accurate result.  The instrument will also turn itself off after several minutes of non-use, which helps conserve battery power.

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. The TC3800 is the only product on the market with a backlit display.

Built for Accuracy and Reliability

The TC3800 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.


Increased Resolution (Exclusive to TC2800 and TC3800)

The TC3800 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.  Choose the TC3800 for the best accuracy through its improved resolution.

Battery Replacement

The Tint-Chek PRO is powered by a 9-volt alkaline battery, which provides an extremely long life.  The meter has an easy slide-out battery cover away from the electronics.  No risk of damaging your unit or destroying your calibration when replacing batteries that force you to open the unit. Competing models require removing screws that are easy to lose and require a non-standard screwdriver size (for most users).

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!
