Action Shield Body Armor Maintenance & Tips
-It is important to have the entire Action Shield adhere in all areas to avoid wind and dirt intrusion, which can weaken the bond. Failure to install Action Shield Body Armor with a flush, uninterrupted bond may result in a lost or damaged panel.
-If the Action Shield adhesive side becomes dirty, simply use water, dish soap, and gentle soft sponge to clean.
-Ensure that the Action Shield Body Armor is totally dry before storage or re-application to the vehicle.
-If a pressure hose is used to clean a vehicle while Action Shield is installed, avoid water spray at angles that may force water between Action Shield and vehicle surface.
-When not using Action Shield, utilize the corrugated boards and store in a dry location. Avoid extreme temperatures and direct sunlight. ***DO NOT*** fold Action Shield Body Armor panels as it may result in damage to panels and hinder ability to adhere to vehicle surfaces.
-Action Shield can be left on a vehicle for extended periods of time and in all weather conditions.
