How to Install Chilhowee Covers for Engine Guards and Highway Bars

CAUTION:
The leather used to lace up the Engine Guard Covers is a strong, full grain leather - They can be broken if stressed too much, however, so go ahead and tighten them up, but just be careful! These covers shouldn't slip, so don't be too concerned that they'll fall down.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. There is no right or wrong way to lace up our covers for highway bars and engine guards. Some people start from the top and lace it down like their shoe. Others start at the bottom and work their way up. Some people have the laces on the outside of the engine guards and others position the laces to the inside of the bar (that's our recommendation). Decisions, decisions!
  2. Here's how most people do it: Begin by wrapping the cover around the highway bars so the laces will be on the inside of the bar, then thread the lace through the top hole on each side of the cover, letting the ends hang down to make sure you have the same amount of lacing on both sides.
  3. Take the end of one lace, cross over to the next hole on the opposite side of the cover, insert it, and pull it through. Don't pull it too tight yet or it will be more difficult to thread the other lace.
  4. Take the end of the other lace, cross over to the next hole on the opposite side of the cover, insert it, and pull it through. Now you can cinch it up.
  5. Repeat the process until you have laced through every hole.
  6. Finally, tie a knot of your choice with the laces to keep them from loosening. Some people like to cut any excess lacing off, but I recommend leaving enough there to work with in the event you ever decide to remove and re-install!

We recommend regularly treating your Chilhowee product with a leather conditioner and UV protector to keep them from fading (such as 303 Aerospace Protectant). If you are not using 303, your leather will ultimately turn dark brown or grey from exposure to the sun. It's like SPF 40 for your stuff. You can read more about it and/or order it from our website.

CARE AND CLEANING
Avoid harsh cleaners or chemicals. Clean and condition the leather with Chilhowee Buffalo Butter or other quality cleaner/conditioner, following the instructions on the package. To avoid fading from the sun's UV rays, use 303 Aerospace Protectant on a regular basis.

If your leather becomes faded, you can use a quality black dye or other fine boot crème to restore the color.
