How it Works


Using Auto Guardian:

Once you receive your Auto Guardian Etching Kit - check the pre-cut stencils to ensure they exactly match your Vehicle Registration number or VIN.

Within your Kit you'll see we've included:

  • 1 Window Etching Paste & Spatula
  • 1 Window Etching Sample & Stencil [for testing/practice]
  • 10 Window Pre-cut Window Stencils [featuring your vehicle's Registration or VIN number]
  • 4 Anti-Theft Warning Stickers
We suggest you have a practice run first with the Test Stencil and Glass Sample initially.

 

HERE'S THE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOU TO FOLLOW:

  1. Clean the windows making sure that any dirt or grease is removed.  Remember you'll need to etch the outer surface of your vehicle and not the inside.
  2. Remove the larger section of the protective paper and attach the label where recommended. 
  3. Affix the labels, smoothing out any air bubbles and open the glass-etch marking paste.
  4. Squeeze a small amount onto the spatula and apply sparingly - you've 9 more to do!
  5. Make sure you fill the numbers and letters in the pre-cut areas of the stencil with marking paste. Take care not to get any paste outside of the stencil - if you do, wipe it off immediately with a damp cloth.
  6. Wait at least 5 minutes before you carefully remove the label.
  7. Wipe off any remaining paste with a damp cloth.
  8. Finally position the warning stickers to the inside of your vehicle, near to door locks and other prominent positions.
  9. Now repeat the process and that's it!

 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE!

  • The temperature of the car windows must not be less than 0ºC when carrying out this process.
  • The etching paste is not a chemical based formula, however as a precaution avoid contact with skin, mouth and eyes and if your skin does come into contact with the etching paste, rinse with clean water immediately.
