Before removing the protective hinge backing from any of the hinges, perform a simple test to ensure that your condenser fan motor will easily lift your Kool Kap to its full 85 degree position. Perform this test by holding one or more of the hinges in place with your fingers and verify that the fan motor will lift your Kool Kap from a flat position to a fully upright position.
When mounting Kool Kap to your condensing unit the outdoor temperature must be ABOVE 50°F. If the outdoor temperature is below 50ºF you must first warm the surface of the condensing unit where the three hinges will be placed. Use a standard hairdryer; making sure the surface of the condenser is warm/hot to the touch. The adhesive backing on the hinges is very strong, work carefully in positioning each hinge, as you will not get a second chance to reposition the hinge.
