How to apply adhesive pads?
Apply the adhesive pads to a smooth, and fully cleaned and grease free surface.
A textured surface or any imperfections to a smooth surface can keep the adhesive pads from making a strong bond.
Press the adhesive pads firmly into place ensuring full contact over the entire surface area.
Be sure to apply the adhesive pads at room temperature and allow at least 24 hours for the adhesive pads to properly adhere to the surface.
How to remove adhesive pads?
To remove the adhesive pads, you can use a hairdryer or heatgun to soften the adhesive and slowly peel it back with a rolling motion. Please note that you will not be able to reuse the adhesive pad once you remove it.
When using adhesive pads for a surfboard mount, don’t use the adhesive pads on soft-top boards as they are porous and the adhesive pad will not adhere properly.

It is typically not recommended to use adhesive pads on skis or snowboards as the flex and vibration caused can sometimes lead to the mount coming loose.
