Easy Installation Instructions
Important Note Before You Begin:
It is always important to plan your installation beforehand.
1. Measure & Mark
Drive car to ideal stop & place Car Stop in front of front tires
Reverse away from Car Stop Strips
Draw around each strip to mark area for glueing
Ensure the strips are in a straight line
Drive the car to your desired parking position in your garage.
Place the Car Stop Strips in front both front tires
Reverse your vehicle and using a soft pencil, mark the floor around the Seal so when you remove the Seal you know where to stick the masking tape. At this point, make sure the seals are positioned in a straight line.
Place masking tape around each side of the seal
Ensure the area is properly cleaned of dust
Place adhesive within marked area using a zigzag pattern
Press down the Car Stop Strip firmly
Place masking tape on all four sides of each Car Stop Seal
Clean and dry the area where you plan to install the Car Stop. Use benzene, thinners or alcohol to ensure a clean bonding surface. All dirt, water, mud, oil and other debris must be removed. (NB: Use personal protective equipment when using chemicals - gloves, masks, glasses etc.)
Apply the adhesive to the floor between the lines using zigzag lines.
Place a small bead of adhesive on the outer edge of the Strip & smooth out
Remove the masking tape from the Strips
Park your car against your new Car Stops.
This step is very important! Push the strip onto the adhesive starting at one end slowly forcing out air bubbles as you push the strip down.
Once the Car Stop is in place, run a bead of adhesive along the edge of the Car Stop. Use your finger or a cloth with soapy water to smooth out the adhesive before it starts to set. We recommend putting masking tape on the Car Stop Strip before running the bead to ensure a neat finish.
Remove the masking tape before the adhesive sets. Wipe any excess adhesive with a cloth and lacquer thinners
