Weather Conditions (Installation)

Hot Weather Installation and Removal Tips
Best installation is at temperatures above > 60 degree F. The hotter the better, as the bumper guards are more flexible and adhere better when warm. Also, removing the bumper protectors is easier when the temperature is hot outside. To remove pull back slowly - if product does not pull off easily use a hair dryer to warm the product or park in direct sun to warm the product.

During the cold months when the outside temperature is below <60 degree F, it is best to install the bumper guards indoors (in a heated space). keep the bumper guards indoors until ready to use. For installation below 60 degrees you may need to use a hairdryer or heater to warm the product and/or vehicle surface. Note: The bumper guards get stiffer as the weather gets colder, so removal may be more difficult. A hairdryer can be used to warm the product, which makes removal easier. Heat one section at a time.

Tools Required:
Bumper Guard Cutter(straight Edge)
(*Scissors or Pliers will not cut properly*)

Measure the bumper from wheel edge to wheel edge to determine bumper protector quantity. We always recommend ordering a few inches extra.

It is important to clean the application area throughly before installing the bumper guards. The cleaning process will remove any dirt, oils or wax.

STEP ONE - For a straight installation use masking tape as a guide. Tack one end of the masking tape to the bumper edge and work your way around the bumper. For a straight edge lift the tape as one piece and tack the tape at the opposite end of the bumper.    (Note:  Tacking down the tape as you move along will result in a crooked line).   To reposition lift the entire tape as one piece and reposition.   Make sure the tape is perfectly straight by viewing from different angles. This is the hardest part of the installation, so take your time and be patient.

STEP TWO - using the tape as a guide begin attaching the bumper guards. *****Do not press firmly in place until you are satisfied with the positioning******. Make sure you lift and cut the ends before pressing down.

STEP THREE -For a professional look cut the ends on an angle. Use a straight edge to mark the cut location. Some people do this step at the very beginning.

STEP FOUR - Use a ruler to make a straight line. Follow the angle of the wheel edge.

STEP FIVE - Trim the edge with a power cutter(Note: scissors and pliers will notbe able to cut). The color runs through the product, so the cut end does not need painting.

Front Bumper Guard

Summary: 1" bumper guards are more flexible and easier to install on very sharp angles. Luckily the weather was hot and we left the bumper guards outside in the heat, which made them very flexible. The customer above wanted added protection, so she asked us to double up the bumper guards (we stuck an additional bumper guard on top of the installed one - this adds depth (approx 1/4")...see pic below. You can also place additional bumper guards above or below the existing one for added protection.
