TACTILIAN Car Flag Magnet Important note: magnets are pliable and can often bend or wrinkle during the shipping process. After removing your magnets from their package, place them on a refrigerator door for at least 24 hours to return them to their original flat shape. Do not attach them to your car until they become flat.

Before Attaching Your Tactilian Car Flag Magnet:

  1. Place your magnets on a refrigerator door for at least 24 hours to flatten and re-magnetize them.
  2. Make sure all surface paints, clear coats and waxes are cured or hardened. Clear coat cures in a minimum of 60 days, and paint is roughly 90 days.
  3. The vehicle should be clean and dry before attaching the magnet.
  4. For maximum adherence, the magnetic material must make direct contact with a metal surface. Any body panel that is made of plastic, fiberglass, carbon fiber, etc., or covered in another material like Bondo Putty or aluminum will not work with magnets.
  5. Make sure the area to which you apply your magnet is completely-flat. Placing a magnet over a curve, crease, bump, or trim piece on the body of the vehicle could create a crease, causing the magnet to fly off the vehicle.

Using Your Flexible Tactilian Car Flag Magnet:

  1. A flexible magnet is not going to work on any surface that exceeds 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Long-term sun exposure will result in uneven fading of the magnet's surface, in large part because the underside of the magnet is shielded from the sun.
  3. Only apply your magnet to a clean, dry surface. 

Storing Your Magnet:

  1. When you are not using it, keep it stored a clean and dry place.
  2. Do not store in the trunk or on the seats of your car as temperatures can easily exceed 150° F..
  3. Store the magnet flat -- and ideally this would be on a level and smooth surface.
  4. Do not place foreign objects on top of the magnet.
  5. Do not stack 2 magnets with the magnetic material facing each other.

Cleaning Your Flexible Magnet:

  1. To guard against dirt buildup, you should inspect the magnet daily and clean it if necessary.
  2. At least once a week, the magnet needs to be pulled off the vehicle and cleaned/inspected (twice a week if it rains).
