Door sills are in the not-so-perfect spot to be stepped on by you and your dirty shoes. Just one misstep and your door sill is scratched for all eternity. So, this begs the question “What can I do to protect my door sill?”.
Answer: Lamin-x Door Sill Protection
The best way to protect your door sills from daily wear and tear is to apply a thin protective film. Our protective door sill guards are made from the same material used to protect the front end of your car, so it is designed to take a beating.
Lamin-x Door Sill Guards are a universal size to fit any vehicle. Here is what you can expect in your package when you buy a door sill guard from Lamin-x:
- A 2.75″ x 64″ Door Sill Guard Film (enough for two door sills)
- An installation squeegee with felt sleeve
- A knife for trimming
- A spray bottle
- Installation instructions
That brings me to the installation, which is a simple process and with a little patience you’ll have no issue installing our film.
Install Lamin-x Door Sill Guards
First things first: measure the area of your door sill, and cut the universal strip to match. You should have enough to protect two door sills with the one universal kit. After the film is measured and cut, clean the area you are going to install on thoroughly. Make sure you clean off all dust and dirt.
Start the Install:
Once the film is cut and the door sill is clean, remove the liner from the film and spray with water from the provided water bottle. Once the adhesive is soaking wet, position the film over the door sill. Make sure you take some time to adjust the fit on the door sill to your liking. The adhesive being wet allows you to position over and over until the film is in it’s desired spot.
Squeegee It Down:
When you are happy with the films position on your door sill, spray the top of the film with water and start squeegeeing it down. It is important to start at the center of the film and work out so that way you remove the water from underneath the film. Use firm strokes to guarantee the film’s adhesion to the paint.
Give it a Once Over:
After the film is fully squeegeed down, go over the film and see if there are any water or air bubbles left behind. If so, take a needle and pop the bubble to release the air or water. If you need to trim the film at all, carefully cut through the film with the provided knife.
Take a deep breath. You are done with a simple and important project to protect your car. You can now rest easy knowing your car’s door sill is protected from everything from dirt and stiletto heels.
