Door sensor sun blocker

I have these sensors on my garage door and they get direct sunlight. Anyone know which "sun block" kit to get? Thanks

You can either switch the sides they are mounted on or use Charmin or Bounty sun blockers.
Yes... a short piece of paper towel or toilet paper tube is all that's needed.

To make something more durable (professional?) I coated my toilet paper tube with two part epoxy that I had thinned with alcohol. The thinned epoxy soaked into the cardboard and hardened making it waterproof and extremely durable. A coat of flat black paint and it even looks professionalish.
