Title: Slidable auxiliary sun visor assembly

Abstract: The present invention involves a auxiliary sun visor assembly for a vehicle which is laterally adjustable and sufficiently compact to fit between a headliner and a main visor of the vehicle. The assembly provides greater blockage than conventionally provided by a single sun visor. The assembly is sufficiently compact to fit between the headliner and the main visor without substantially biasing the main visor away from the headliner. The assembly includes a visor body, a support arm having first and second ends and a ridge extending longitudinally between the ends, a detent clip for supporting the visor body and movable pivotably and slidably longitudinally with respect to the support arm, and a u-shaped bushing having terminal portions wrapped around the support arm between the detent clip and the support arm wherein the terminal portions terminate substantially at opposite sides of the ridge preventing the bushing from pivotal movement about the support arm.
