  1. The product was easy to apply and control during the application. review by Nolan on 7/5/2017

    Was relieved to find out that the wind cups could be replaced. Easily replaced new set. The unit is operating like new again.

  2. Great part--great price. review by Richard on 6/30/2017

    These are a perfect replacement set of wind cups for my 5-in-1 weather station. Installation was a breeze. The old ones just pull straight up and off--with a little force. The new set just presses back on by hand. Kudos to Accurite for providing replacement parts like these for a reasonable price. $5.00 is more than fair for these things! For this reason alone I will buy their products when the time comes to replace my existing instrument.

  3. A simple replacement of broken wind cups review by John on 6/21/2017

    A wind and hail storm broke off one of my wind cups after a year and a half. The replacement cups came quickly and were fairly priced (except for the relatively high shipping costs). Removing the old cups was very simple and I had no problems like others have written about. Simply pulling with a firm and steady force, the old ones popped right off and the new ones slipped right on. The cups may appear very fragile, but they must be light so they will start turning in light breezes, which would not happen if they were made with greater mass. While I had my sensor unit down from its mounting pole, I took the opportunity to put in new Lithium batteries. The 1.5 year old batteries were still going strong, but the effort to bring down the sensor made this a fair replacement time. I applaud Acurite for keeping small parts like this available.

  4. Wind Cups review by Taylor on 5/16/2017

    When the wind took my roof over my deck off it broke both the wind cups and wind vane. I was excited that I could get parts for this unit and now is fully functional. I am enjoying watching my weather again.

    I tried the instructions to remove the damaged cups but could not pull them off, so I used a hammer and gave it a smart tap and was then able to remove the old ones. The new ones went on easily and is fully functional now.

  5. Was relieved to find out that the wind cups could be replaced. Needed to cut to remove broken cups but easly replaced new set. The unit is operating like new again Thanks review by Norman on 4/16/2017

    Ordering was easy and professional. Equipment took a beating during during a bad snowstorm but after repair is still operating like new. Good job!

  6. did the trick review by Sean on 3/21/2017

    I ordered this after a tree branch came down and smashed the wind cups on my weather station. The old broken one came off and this one went on and I am back in business.

  7. quick, simple repair on my awesome weather station review by Mary on 1/19/2017

    This purchase was specifically for replacement wind cups for the 5-in-1Acu-Rite weather station. I was so glad that I was able to purchase, for a very fair price, just what I needed. It came quickly, and the directions to install this replacement part were clear and do-able.

    I have really enjoyed this weather station for 2 years. When the rain gauge quit working this past summer, I went onto the Acu-Rite website and found a video that helped me take care of the problem.

  8. Wind Cups review by Teddy on 7/14/2016

    I purchased the cups to replace the damaged cups from a storm. They were easy to replace and the cost was fair. Shipping cost more then product but was worth the wait.

  9. Wind cups review by Bud on 7/6/2016

    Had a little trouble getting the old one off but the new cups went on without problems. Don't drop unit on the cups

  10. Replacement review by William on 6/29/2016

    The hail was hard on my cups, and broke. Instructions included when I got them. Little harder then just pulling off and almost broke the wind direction sail. So be careful. BUt they work and I have extra s just in case.

  11. Wind cups review by JimF on 6/16/2016

    Need to keep spare on hand due to hail damage to plastic construction.

  12. Replaced Original Cup review by Robert on 5/31/2016

    Birds landing on the original cups broke two off. Close examination showed them to be flimsy. The replacement cups were much more substantial. My recommendation is to buy an extra set of cups when you purchase your original unit.

  13. good product. review by Suellen on 5/24/2016

    When a hailstorm broke off the wind cups of our weather station, I immediately ordered a new one. Fast delivery. Easy to install. Reasonable price.

  14. Great product review by Brenda on 5/17/2016

    I check my weather station daily! I highly recommend getting one!

  15. Excellent replacement, fast delivery review by Yves on 5/17/2016

    Excellent replacement, fast delivery. I was very satisfied

  16. Perfect! review by Bill on 3/27/2016

    A hailstorm knnocked off all 3 cups on the anemometer! I easily found the replacement part on their website, ordered it and it arrived within 2 days of placing the order. The replacement part came with installation instructions tat were easy to follow and amount to pulling the broken part from the shaft, placing a drop of light oil on the shaft, (I used sewing machine oil) and pressing the new part onto the shaft. I did clean a bit of dust from the shaft before oiling it. Couldn't be simpler, and I loved the fast service!

  17. Great and easy to install review by Ron on 2/6/2016

    I had to pull pretty hard on the old one to get it off. The new cups went on quick and easy. Fixed my wind speed detection issue (one cup was missing on the old one). Excellent pricing for the replacement part.
    Shipping to Canada was a bit pricey though. I almost did not order but added them to another item so the overall cost per item was better.

  18. Back In Action review by Gary on 1/26/2016

    A miss guided 2X4 accidentally broke two of the cups while repairing the fence my weather station was mounted upon. I did some research and came up with ACURITE. Ordered the replacement parts and I was back in action in less than a week. Thank you for the enclosed instructions that guided me to a quick removal and replacement of the wind cups...piece of cake!

  19. Difficult to replace review by chris on 7/26/2015

    After being outside for years it's understandable that the broken wind cups aren't easy to get off. Tried everything to get the old anemometer off. Eventually found that an electric hammer works very well to tap the broken product off and put the new anemometer on.

  20. Finally, a product worthy of best in class! review by Dave B on 5/5/2015

    I'm a storm chaser and local spotter, so I keep an eye on the weather all the time. I've been through a bunch of weather stations. Usually when it breaks, one painfully tosses one's investment into the trash bin, and sadly gets online to buy the replacement.... This time, the best in class showed up, and I snatched it up as fast as my credit card could grab it! I almost cried when I broke the cups while adjusting the pole it was on. But, alas, there was a very inexpensive solution to replace the broken parts, and a very friendly customer support fellow happy to assist me in that purchase. Who would have thunk? What an awesome experience!

  21. Great Easy Replacement review by sparkie on 5/2/2015

    For my 5 in 1, broke during a move (my fault for not packing correctly). Very easy replacement... Pull the old one off, push the new on on... Could be difficult if your 5-in-1 unit is mounted high off the ground.

  22. Quick and Easy review by Belinda on 4/30/2015

    After owning a 5-in-1 weather station for about 4+ years we moved and my husband broke a cup and we ordered a new one and it came in quick and it was easy for him to remove the old one and easy to install the new one and it was good as new. I love my weather station.

  23. Good to go. review by Rodney on 4/4/2015

    After 5 years of OK sun, 70mph + winds, several thunderstorms, and large hail, a crow landed on it and broke off a cup. Ordered 3, got within a week, and painted it before installing it with bright colors, hoping the birds will stay off. Sure looks pretty spinning. It was easy to remove the old one and install the new one.

  24. Good to go. review by Rodney on 4/4/2015

    Ordered 3 to replace the one that the crows used for a perch. Had this one for 5 years, held out for several thunderstorms and one tornado in OK. But seems like the birds like to use it for a landing pad. Easy to replace. I painted one with bright colors, hoping to keep the birds off. Sure looks good when spinning.


  25. Replacement - Works Fine review by Daniel on 3/21/2015

    I've had a 5-in-1 station for 5+ years. It has endured the brutal North Dakota winters (lowest was -39/-62 WC) and our summers can get hot and muggy at times. Never had an issue until we moved. During the move 2 of the cups broke off (my error in not packing properly). Bought the replacement cups, easily installed and viola, my station is back up and functioning.

  26. good review by Carol on 3/6/2015

    Old one was very hard to remove and getting the new one aligned properly was a task. Wish they were made sturdier. On the second set in 1 year. Good thing I ordered 3. Love my weather station though. Will keep buying them as necessary. Just don't discontinue them as most companies have done.

  27. Fairly easy fix. A little difficult to get old cups off. review by Elizabeth on 2/17/2015

    Took the unit down, cleaned it up, replaced cups and batteries then replaced unit. Easy as that. No other problems!

  28. Easy Fix review by Barry on 1/23/2015

    I had to order a replacement after I "cleaned" the unit while replacing batteries. It was cold and it broke easily. The replacement arrived fairly quickly. I had to apply a little heat to get the two year old one off. I'm in the mountains of NC, so the unit is subjected to a harsh environment. Good product.

  29. Easy fix, unrelated problems followed review by Tom on 10/9/2014

    Cost effective, easy to install new cups. Unfortunately, they obviously are NOT resistant to UV damage.
    Since installing, my outside temperature is stuck at -40 degrees, and the humidity is stuck at 1%. I am afraid to step outside in fear that I will desiccate and crumble into dust. Oh well, I will just have to order a totally new outside unit, unless I can increase my temperature and humidity.

  30. Easy replacement and quick service on parts ordered review by Dave on 9/29/2014

    The plastic cups don't hold up well to large hail and 60+ mph wind. Other brands of weather stations I've had had the same problems. Can't fault acurite for this. Easy to replace the part and I'm back in business with my weather station.

  31. Easy replacement / was in my mail box in 2 days review by Quality product on 9/9/2014

    The replacement wind cups were delivered in 2 days after I ordered. That was fast and unexpected. Replacement was a breeze. Now if I can just keep the damn crows off the weather station.

  32. Easy as a breeze review by Guinevere on 9/5/2014

    I've had my weather station for a bit over two years with no issues or need to replace any parts.
    I am unsure how one of the wind cups broke off, but I ordered the new part which was to my surprise not expensive at all.
    Replacing it took a bit of elbow grease. The old one was rather firmly in place and took a few hard hits (but delicate) hits of a hammer to get off. I was slightly worried I might break the weather station itself but the old cups came off and the new one slipped on very easy and now works great.

  33. Golf ball sized hail, high wind, & extensive property damage...... review by Brian L. on 9/2/2014

    The wind cup unit is surprisingly strong and held up very well in typical summer storms and small to medium sized hail. It took golf ball size hail pounding down for 10 minutes to break off 1 cup off from the air cup unit. This severe hail & wind storm broke several windows, tore off many roof shingles and heavily damaged the vinyl siding and eavestroughs to the point of replacement. The entire weather unit held up well with the exception of the one air cup. Delivery was super fast and installing the new cup unit was super easy and took less than a minute!!! The cost per air cup unit was only $5 so it didnt break the bank.
    data of this storm was incredible even with the loss of 1 cup.

  34. good product review by Samuel on 8/26/2014

    Wish they would stand up longer.

  35. For the cost and what it is, it's fine review by Jim on 8/22/2014

    It was hard to pull the old one off and put the new one on, but that's probably a good thing considering what it does. I was a little worried about breaking the new one, but I got it on and it works fine now. I'm glad I could just replace the cups and did not have to replace the whole sensor unit.

  36. works review by coach A on 8/18/2014

    Love my weather station. Wish wind cups were more durable. Glad more can be ordered. Hard to get old one off and new one on.

  37. Nice easy fix review by Steve on 8/16/2014

    After a recent Macroburst with winds recorded at 114 mph + WITH hail, the wind cups were the only damaged part! Ordered them and received in a week. Literally,
    a 30 second fix and NO tools required!! Great design!!

  38. Easy Replacement review by ekh on 7/10/2014

    Straight line winds of 75 MPH sent the cups in 3 pieces into the neighbors yard. Easy to replace, and was back working in a matter of minutes.

  39. Replacement wind cups review by reminthorn on 6/17/2014

    They arrived quickly, instructions were easy to follow to replace the cups. I hope these last longer in hot Florida sun.

  40. very easy and quick to change wind cups review by Ronald on 6/11/2014

    Order came quick. Instructions to change clear. 5 minutes and job completed.

  41. quick shipping and ease of website. review by Greg on 5/30/2014

    Easy to order and quick shipping. I agree with one previous comment that the new wind cup design makes the part more difficult to install as far onto the shaft as the original part. I stopped short of the original position as I feared that I would further damage the unit. I also disassembled the unit and cleaned the solar panel glass and lubed the bearing for the wind sensor.

  42. Replacement easy review by Dale on 5/28/2014

    Shipping costs more than the part.

  43. Everything was great... review by Russ on 5/25/2014

    Arrived promptly. Easy replacement. Up and running in no time.

  44. Wind Cups need redesigning review by BenMar on 5/25/2014

    Too fragile, I have had 3 different stations wind cups shear off and no hail was noted.
    The UV protection may be lacking in the plastic which make the cup arms brittle and easy to shear off

  45. Great Product review by LB on 5/23/2014

    We had a hailstorm come through our area with stones approx. the size of golf balls and 80+ mph winds, needless to say the wind cups were destroyed, but the rest of the outdoor unit made it through the storm. I wasn't sure if I would be able to order just the wind cups but I called and checked and it was not a problem. Thanks Acurite!

  46. Good service review by Randy on 5/11/2014

    was out of stock. Notified me when available. Order and was received in only a few day. Quick and easy. Part was broken due to neighborhood cutting tree limbs that came down and broke the part.

  47. Works great review by Paul on 5/4/2014

    Weather station is about three years old. Recently had a hailstorm that knocked off two of the cups. Ordered the replacement part same day, got it the following week. Took longer to put up the ladder than to change the part. Works great!!

  48. great review by monty on 4/20/2014

    Easy to replace. Just follow instructions.

  49. Wind cup replacement part review by Joey M. on 4/15/2014

    Due to an ice storm in February, an ice buildup on a nearby tree branch melted, fell on the 5-in1 sensor and broke one of the wind cups. However, removing the broken one was extremely difficult and in the process the wind direction vane broke in two. I was able to glue the pieces back together and will see how long it lasts. The replacement part fit very tightly and was a little difficult to fit on the shaft.

    FAST delivery and easy to understand instructions.

  50. easy to change out this part review by Mary on 4/15/2014

    Well Packaged And fast Delivery

  51. Good replacement product review by Mark R on 4/10/2014

    I bought this for my 5-in-1 seeing as the original wind cups did not make it through their first winter. The shipped quickly and work fine but the old ones were difficult to get off, I had to pull really hard and was worried about breaking other parts on the unit, and the replacements fit so snugly they did not go all the way down the shaft.

  52. Wind Cup Replaced review by DukeCity on 2/10/2014

    Broken wind cup, still under warranty. Acurite replaced free with free shipment.
    Great packaging, fast shipment, easy instructions. Replaced easily.
    Thabk you Acurite.

  53. Fantastic Product review by Jim on 2/1/2014

    I received the 5 in 1 for a Christmas gift a year ago from my youngest daughter. I totally love it. We bought a house in November and in the move one of the cups got broke off, I was lost without my weather station. I ordered my new cup assembly and quickly got my station back up and running. Great service and product. Now I'll be able to keep my family and friends informed on the weather. Thanks

  54. Great replacement part and fast service review by Tim on 1/31/2014

    A Red Hawk has decided to make my weather station it's new perch and broke off one of the cups. Web site was great and delivery quick. The install was very easy.

  55. Repair part wind cup review by Fast Delivery on 1/31/2014

    I had a limb fall onto my 5-in-1 and destroyed the wind cup. Bought the replacement and arrived in a few days. Super fast delivery and service

  56. I'll echo the great service and product!! And cust. service associate, Matt! review by Gary on 1/21/2014

    Shipped item right away. Arrived in a few days with complete instructions. Thanks again for the super response!

  57. Great service and product. review by Steve on 1/19/2014

    One of the wind cups broke off our sensor and I was hoping to not have to go buy another complete sensor. I very happy to find that Acurite offered replacement wind cups. The price of the replacement cups was great so I placed an order for two sets of wind cups in the event another break occurred. My well packaged ordered arrived within a few days. Following the directions provided, the wind cups were easy to replace.
