    • Peel the back off of the new traction pad to reveal the adhesive.

    • When placed, the traction pad should be about an inch away from the rear binding.

    • To avoid creating air bubbles, start with one corner of the pad and roll the rest down.

    • Press down firmly to help it stick to the board and remove any air bubbles that may have occurred.

    • Give the adhesive a minimum of 12 hours to dry before use.
