Abstract

See full text

A method for installing a non-metallic edge guard on the trailing edge of an automobile door through the use of double back adhesive tape. The tape is first applied to the trailing edge with the side that is toward the edge containing exposed adhesive and the opposite side being covered by a release layer. After the tape has been installed, a portion of the release layer is stripped away from the tape while the remainder of the installed tape remains covered by the release layer. The edge guard is then fitted onto the trailing edge, covering that portion of the tape from which the release layer has been stripped as well as an immediately contiguous portion where the release layer has not been stripped away from the tape. The stripped away portion of the release layer is then pulled to expose adhesive on the immediately contiguous portion of the tape that is covered by the edge guard and this process is continued until the edge guard is completely installed, adhering along its entire length to the exposed adhesive on the outer side of the double back tape.
