Product Care Information

Windshields • Glass • Doors • Windows • Hatches • Portlights


Regular cleaning with fresh water and a soft cloth will keep and protect your windshield, window, or hatch for years.

Glass
Use commercially available glass cleaners or a mixture of fresh water and vinegar. Do not use abrasives, harsh chemicals, or metal scrapers. Regular cleaning will help assure clarity of the glass for safe boating.

Acrylic
Never use glass cleaning solutions or dry cloth to clean Plexiglas®. Never use acetone, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, or lacquer thinner. The only acceptable cleaners are a small amount of denatured alcohol, clean water, or a commercially available plastic polisher specific for the purpose. Use a soft rag and wash off the plastic windshield first with lukewarm water to avoid scratching the surface.

Window Channels
Clean window channels with mild detergent only. Channels can be sprayed with silicone aerosol while sliding the glass back and forth.

Metal
Polish with commercially available metal polishes. A boat or car wax periodically applied will offer extra protection against the elements.

Painted Surfaces
Clean with fresh water periodically. Touch up scratches and areas where paint has chipped off with touch-up spray paint. Touch-up kits are available from the factory.

Boat Top Clips
 - Never slide along on windshield framework
 - To change clip location, snap on and off the aluminum top track

CAUTION!
 - Never ground windshield with any electrical devices or appliances.  - Never use the windshield as a mooring cleat for tying off to a dock, pier or another boat.  - Never use the windshield as a tie-off attachment for trailering purposes.

Latches
Use care when opening and closing latches, adjusters and supports. Do not force.
