How to Install GlareStomper


The Short Version

  1. Use alcohol or lens cleaner to remove dirt or oils from the GPS
  2. Determine where to place Velcro® on your unit (see samples below)
  3. Cut and place Velcro® so as not to pass over card slots or other controls
  4. Remove Velcro® adhesive backing (avoid touching adhesive)
  5. Place Velcro® strips on GPS as far toward the front as possible - press firmly to secure
  6. Allow adhesive to cure 24 hours before attaching visor

 

NOTE

  • On/off push buttons can be activated by pressing on the shade over the switch.
  • If needed, make cuts in back edge of visor to allow for mount clips or to expose other switches etc. if needed. This will not harm the visor - it will not fray or unravel. However, just as a precaution, touch any loose threads with a little SuperGlue®.

 

Cutting the visor DOES NOT void our refund policy

Instructions are included with each visor

Variations

Typical Motorcycle Mounting

 

 

 

If you need to avoid switches or ports, cut notches in back edge of visor.

 

IMPORTANT: Kitchen shears are great for this! Use just enough of the point of the shears to cut in through the Velcro portion of the back edge. You can also use a carpenter's knife.


In-dash Display Mounting

Our visors are NOT made for this purpose. HOWEVER, THEY WILL WORK!

Just use the information below to see if YOUR SITUATION applies.

 

If it won't work in the end, SEND IT BACK FOR A REFUND! No worries.

BUT, measure your screen first, and use our sizing tool.


Flat Surface Mounting

""
  1. Nip the back edge of the visor in 2 places where the top section of the visor should transition to the sides. IMPORTANT: Kitchen shears are great for this! Use just enough of the point of the shears to cut in through the Velcro portion of the back edge. You can also use a carpenter's knife.
  2. The distance between these cuts should equal the width of your display.
  3. Fold the back edges out 90 degrees as shown in the illustration.
  4. Place adhesive Velcro® on the flat surfaces and attach the Visor.

"Chin Strap" Method

When you can't put adhesive Velcro® on the sides of your unit, use this method!

Mounting Glarestomper GPS Visor on GPS Using 'chinstrap' method

NOTE: We DO NOT supply the non-adhesive 'fuzzy' Velcro® needed for this method. It is commonly available at almost any hardware store, Wal-mart, or sewing supply.

 

  1. Place adhesive Velcro® (1) on the top of the unit ONLY, avoiding switches.
  2. Take advantage of the ‘hook’ patches (3) located on each end of the visor (2).
  3. Attach non-adhesive 'loop' (fuzzy) Velcro® (4) to one side of the visor (3).
  4. Run it under the bottom to the other side. Pull it taught and attach it to the other side (3).

This hold the sides in place (like a chin strap on a helmet)
