Step1 Clean the Window
Clean the window thoroughly with an ammonia-based window cleaner and wipe it
dry using a squeegee. Make sure that all of the
window cleaner is wiped off,
as it will dissolve the adhesive on the window film.

Step2 Wet the glass with a light
spray of water and baby shampoo
Fill a spray bottle with water and add a couple of drops of baby shampoo.
Spray the mixture onto the window. This mixture helps the film stick to the
window but still lets you slide the film around so you can fit it properly into
the corners before the mixture dries.

Step3 Measure and trim the film to size
Measure the window to see how large an area you need to cover, allowing
at least two centimetres overlap for all four sides. Roll the window film out
onto a flat horizontal surface and trim to size. Before you put the film on
the window, start peeling the backing off the sticky side of the film. Use
masking tape on both sides of one corner to get the peeling started.

Step4 Put the window film
onto the window
Once you’ve peeled off the top five to ten centimetres of backing,
move the film up to the surface of the window. Start by putting the top two
corners in place. Once the film is sitting in a good position you can slowly start to take
the rest of the backing off.

Step5 Remove the backing from
window film as you go
Slowly peel the backing off in stages. Use a squeegee to flatten the film
out onto the window as you go. Start the squeegee in the centre of the
window and push out to the edges. As you work down the window, use the
spray bottle to keep the surface as moist as possible.

Step6 Remove the air bubbles
from the window film
Once the squeegee has got the larger bubbles out, use the small plastic
scraper to remove any smaller bubbles. You can work out any small
pockets of water at the same time. Whatever small amounts of moisture
are left will work with the adhesive on the film to create a bond to the window.

Step7 Give the window film a final trim
When all the bubbles are out, take a sharp blade and give the film a final
trim at the edges of the window. Once you’ve trimmed the edges, give the film
one final scrape with the small plastic scraper. Tuck the corners in a hard as
you can, squeegeeing towards the outside, working out the last remnants of water.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! When customers review our products, the number one response is how surprisingly easy it was to install. Simply peel, spray, trim and squeegee the film onto your window. Complete Instructions can be found here!.
Not at all. If film has been installed for some time, a light residue may remain on the glass. This can be easily washed off.
You will need an squeegee and utility knife, 32oz spray bottle, mild detergent (baby shampoo is recommended) some paper towels. We also recommend a tape measure and a straight edge, such as a ruler.
At this time we do not custom cut the film to the size of your window, however using a basic utility knife the film can easily be trimmed to size.
Unfortunately there is no film that allows for 24/7 privacy, while still allowing you to see out at all times. The best solution for this scenario is our One Way Mirror Film. It provides a great deal of privacy while still allowing you to see out during the day. At night, basic privacy is still maintained. To enhance this, an exterior light needs to be installed and pointed at the window, as this film works based on light density.
Definitely! If you are concerned about humidity or the film coming in direct contact with water after installation, apply a bead of silicone to the edges of the film. This will prevent water from getting behind the window film.
Installing window film on a mirror is an excellent way to update the look of a room. Install the film the same way you would install on any window. Our border designs are a great option for mirrors.
Our films are designed to be installed to any glass surface. While many customers have successfully installed our films on Plexi-Glass windows and have reported no problems, our films are not designed for Plexi-Glass installation. The concern with Plexi-Glass is that it releases small amounts of gas, especially with new Plexi-Glass, causing a champagne (bubble) effect in areas of the film. If you choose to install our films onto new Plexi-Glass please allow the Plexi-Glass to breathe for 1-2 weeks prior to installing our films.
For safety, each State sets limits on the Visible Light Transmission (VLT) that must be allowed to pass through car window film. We have compiled the following reference Here! for your convenience, but for the most up-to-date tinting laws, check with your local law enforcement agency.
