Default How can I (temporarily) stop a windshield crack from getting bigger?

A stupid rock chipped my windshield yesterday and a small crack emerged...which is now a large crack. It keeps getting bigger. I can't take it to get fixed until at least Tuesday -- in the meantime what can I do to keep it from getting even bigger?

Default hey i got one of these too... i heard theres something that you can inject in the crack to stop it

luckily for me, the crack is way in the bottom corner, out of sight.

Default I wouldn't worry about it, just get it replaced

laminated safety glass will hold together under extreme stress, you should be fine until Tuesday, just don't do any dancing on it

Yeah, if you're gonna get busy on the hood, don't lean up against the glass.

Easy, drill a small hole in the glass at the ends of the crack.

Drive a 5 lb spike through it, just like the Liberty bell.
