Preparation, Use & Care
Q. Do vehicles need special preparation before applying
A. Simple, both the vehicles surface and the black magnetic side of the
sign should be clean and dry. The vehicle should be waxed prior to applying.
Q. What is the best way to apply an auto magnet?
A. Let one edge of the magnet contact the vehicle in the desired position.
Then let the magnetic power do the work as it puts the sign into place from the
edge where you started to the edge of the opposite. If the magnet is not
exactly where you want it, peel it off, reposition the starting edge and
repeat. Make sure that the entire surface of magnet is smoothly against the
vehicle with no air pockets underneath. In winter the temperature of the magnet
should be about 50 degrees f during installation, but the temperature of the
vehicle surface does not matter.
Q. Do any surfaces present problems?
A. Care should be taken with wood grain paneling and metalllic finishes.
Such surfaces should be checked weekly for the first 90 days of use. A generous
waxing of both the surface where the magnet will be placed and the back of the
magnet itself will help prevent damage.
Q. What magnet maintenance is recommended?
A. Remove the magnet weekly and wipe dry both the magnetic side
and the surface of the vehicle. During warmer humid weather it is recommended
to remove the magnet every three to four days. This keeps moisture
from collecting, which can potentially damage a vehicle's surface. Simply wash
it with warm water and mild detergent. Remove magnet after snowfall
and rain – wipe dry.
