So what’s been happening over the years...


  • Bar’s Leaks Australia and Bar’s Leaks NZ were incorporated under H.O Wiles LTD and began manufacturing a range of below the bonnet products.


  • H.O Wiles introduced Bar’s Bugs in NZ and AU  – above the bonnet windscreen washer additive.

Late 1980 - 1990s

  • Bar’s Bugs has been keeping St Johns Ambulances and the NZ Police force safe across NZ roads. Part of the Bar’s Bugs product range is used in their fleet’s car servicing programme so when the cars are out on the road, a dirty windscreen is the least of their worries.

Into the 2000s

  • We started supplying the Department of Corrections with Bar’s Bugs Anti-Fog and our Bar’s Bugs windscreen cleaner
  • Our range is stocked and supported by numerous well-known retailers: Repco, Super Cheap Auto, Autobarn, Mitre10, Coles, Cole Express and many more! 
  • We teamed up with the boys at Team U & A. They’ve been trialling our product on their weekend off road adventures and to date…are loving the products!
  • Introducing Bar’s Bugs Sanitiser Range - Who would have thought 2020 was the year of a global pandemic. A frightening and uncertain time for all of us to be grappling with. Not only are we facing a daunting economic challenge but also a health crisis that no one could have planned for. We can no longer prevent this outbreak but manage it as best we can. Under the current climate we have turned our attention to developing a sanitising range of automotive products that are suitable not only for domestic but also automotive and marine use. Our range kills 99% of germs, is effective against viruses, is non-flammable, and uniquely safe on both soft and hard surfaces.
