Here's a quick guide on how to install and maintain tinted windows.
How to Install the Tinted Window Kit
Step 1: To begin, pull the spreader bar down and release the bow coupler, sliding it all the way towards the window.
Step 2: After that, start doing the zipper on one of the side curtains by slipping the plastic strip at the bottom until it reaches the side retainer before zipping it up all the way.
Step 3: Next, wrap the flap of the side curtain around the vertical rod before tying up the hook and loop strips.
Step 4: Wrap the other flaps above each door on the horizontal rod before tying up the hook and loop strips again.
Step 5: Lastly, open the tailgate of your vehicle and slide the rear curtain retainer so you can zip it up. After that, push the retainer to the top and slip the plastic under the tailgate retainer.
Quick Tips on How to Maintain Tinted Windows
- When cleaning the top part of your windows, remember to use warm water, soap, and a soft brittle brush to scrub any dirt or grime off. After that, rinse the part with water until the soap is completely removed.
- When cleaning the windows, always use a soft, wet cloth or a sponge and mild dishwashing liquid. Do not use a brush to avoid scratching or damaging the delicate surface of the curtains. Note that you should never wipe the windows if they are still dry. And lastly, keep in mind that you need to be extra careful when cleaning the windows during winter as snow or frost can make the part stiff and cause it to crack.
- You can keep the zippers of the windows in tiptop shape by regularly cleaning and lubricating them. In case you find a zipper that opens behind the slider, you can fix this easily by using pliers to make the sides parallel and returning the slider at the end of the zipper.
- If you find water seeping on the seams, you can easily fix this using a water repellent product. You can also repair tears using iron-on patches.
- Regularly clean and lubricate the snaps using silicone to prevent them from sticking on the studs.
