DNever drive or operate vehicle with ParkingArmor outside/attached to the vehicle. Do not use product if it may come in contact with or block vehicle’s exhaust. Failure to follow instructions may result in serious injury and/or vehicle damage. notice: some states prohibit covering license plates when parked. Check your local laws before purchasing.
Before purchasing a ParkingArmor please consider the following:
Your trunk width must be large enough to accommodate storing the ParkingArmor flat when not in use. Measure the interior width of your trunk space to determine the maximum size ParkingArmor your vehicle can accommodate. (For example, if the interior width of your trunk is 46 inches, do not order the 4.8 Edition, order the slightly smaller 4.2 edition, so it can store flat in your trunk).
The location of the vehicle’s exhaust pipes is very important when selecting the correct size ParkingArmor for your vehicle. Be sure to measure the distance between your rear exhaust pipes to ensure you have enough space between ParkingArmor and your exhaust pipes. ParkingArmor should never come in contact with exhaust pipes. Do not cover or block the vehicle’s exhaust (even after parking the exhaust pipes remain hot and any contact may damage the product or vehicle). (next para) Note: For example, the Porsche Cayenne has exhaust pipes located high in the bumper.
If you plan on parking on the street and your rear license plate is located in your bumper, please contact us (link) for alternative product recommendations. Do not cover or obstruct your rear license plate when parking on the street or you risk receiving a ticket.
