Then why are you driving without protection?
Wait, let's guess the excuse:
"It's too expensive" - have you checked at the prices of the parts to replace?

"It's too hard" - do you know that Umnitza has videos?

"I don't know anyone who can install these for me" - Umnitza has the DIRECT connection to all the locations in NorCal and SoCal.

"It's probably visible" - from 1' away.

Installation is best when applied by a trained professional although many do-it-yourselfers have had great success. To install StonGard, a mixture of 25% rubbing alcohol and 75% water is sprayed on the clean vehicle surface as well as the adhesive side of the StonGard. This fluid allows the installer to position the StonGard to the vehicle without bonding immediately. Additionally, the alcohol allows the adhesive to flow out and become crystal clear. Once in position, a firm plastic squeegee with a low friction sleeve is used to squeegee out the excess fluid and bond the StonGard to the surface.

Install without bubbles?

StonGard is extremely durable and in most cases, if bubbles are noticed during installation, the StonGard can be pulled up to the bubble, rewet, and reapplied. The exceptions to this are when the StonGard adhesive has been in contact with the paint for too long and especially when it is very warm out (i.e. over 80 degrees F.) In these cases there is a risk of blemishing the adhesive. Even the best installers sometimes get bubbles and for this purpose, a piercing tool is included with every retail kit. The tool pierces a small, unnoticeable hole though the StonGard and allows the fluid to escape.


StonGard is completely removable without causing damage to the finish of the paint. It is so strong it will not tear apart when pulling it off, it will come off in one piece. In most cases it will come off cleanly without leaving behind any adhesive. However, when adhesive does remain behind, it is easily cleaned off with 3M( General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner which will not harm cured paint. Once removed, StonGard is not reusable.

Effect on Paint?

StonGard does not bond so firmly that it would damage paint if removed, given the paint is properly bonded to the surface it was applied to. Factory paint and properly applied repaints will not be harmed. Warning: StonGard can pull off paint that was
improperly applied.

Effect of Sun?

StonGard has UV screens built in to protect itself from damaging ultra-violet light. The sun will not damage the StonGard or the paint that the StonGard is covering.

Wash and Wax?

StonGard is made from urethane and so are most automobile paints. StonGard will react to waxes just like your paint reacts to waxes. We recommend you wash and wax your StonGard with your car as if it wasn't even there.

Hot and Cold?

StonGard was specifically designed to protect the painted surfaces of vehicles in ALL climates. Although StonGard must be installed at temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees F., once applied, StonGard is not effected by extreme temperatures.

OEM Used and Approved?

The material that StonGard is made from is used and approved by many major automobile manufacturers and is sometimes used in various applications on factory cars.

Shiny or Dull?

StonGard has a shiny surface. When we have displayed this product in auto shows, we've had to put arrows on the car pointing to the edge so people could see it. Without the arrows, most passers by didn't even think the StonGard was on the car. Even with the arrows, some people couldn't find the edge without touching the car.
