For temporary attachment to magnetically responsive, steel surfaces, simply place GasPods at select points on your car. A cushioned, gripping surface pad protects your car’s paint from scratching. Non-magnetic surfaces, such as fiberglass, stainless steel, polyurethane, or plastic, require use of GasPods that are attached using peel-and-stick adhesive.
GasPods are easily self-installed onto any vehicle. A distinguishing characteristic of the magnetic version is that they can also be detached without damage to paint. Simply placed 4-5 inches apart near the back windshield, anyone can do it!
For fun, GasPods can be placed anywhere. For function, we suggest starting with a row of GasPods running a 7″-10″ forward of the back trunk line of a sedan, or the back roof line of a car with a vertical back.
The bulbous shape is placed facing the front, the pointed end should face toward the back.
GasPod Test Team Member T.S. shows how easy it is to attach GasPods magnetically to your car, SUV or truck. Here, T.S. shows us how to install GasPods on his 2001 Toyota Tundra pickup truck.
Thoroughly clean the area on the surface of the vehicle where GasPods are to be placed.
Make sure that the base pad or tape is securely affixed to the bottom of the GasPod.
Place the first GasPod at the center point between the right and left side of the vehicle.
Place a 2nd and 3rd GasPods on the outside right and left edges of the vehicle.
Confirm that GasPods are placed so as to allow full range of movement of doors, windows or lift gates.
Place 3 GasPods between the center GasPod and the right edge GasPod, as well as between the center GasPod and the left edge GasPod.
All should be equidistant from one another, which for most vehicles is between 4″ and 5″ apart.
Mark placement of the GasPods where they are placed on your vehicle with wax pencil, or wedge cut from a bar of soap. Both will wipe clean from paint surface after installation.
Peel off the adhesive covering to expose the sticky surface used for adhesion of the GasPods to your vehicle.
One by one, place each GasPod where you had marked with the wax pencil or soap. Make sure to push down firmly to secure in place.
Happy GasPod Test Team members right after installing GasPods on a Honda Fit!
