Instructions For Use - Installing HOV PPF Stickers

Install Protips:

  • Parts & tools: HOV stickers, StickerKnight (SK) stickers, 70% IPA, distilled water, squeegee (or equiv.), and microfiber cloth
  • Install stickers in a well lit and clean environment
  • Take care when setting HOV sticker onto StickerKnight (SK) sticker, as it can not be undone once applied. Do not attempt to remove once applied, as it will cause damage to HOV sticker. Slight misalignment is OK as a margin was factored in for ease of application & removal.
  • Take your time with SK sticker placement on vehicle. These steps can be done various times without damage (following the instructions detailed below):
