APPLICATION GUIDE

The BIKE ID KIT+ Advanced Anti-Theft Identification System provides Overt, Covert, Stealth and Digital identification protection to deter theft and increase the likelihood of your bike being recovered if stolen!

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE APPLICATION

  • Please ensure all the surfaces where you intend to apply the DataDotDNA® microdots and labels are clean, dry, and free from grease, oil, and dirt.
  • The DataDotDNA® adhesive coating is an opaque white colour when wet but dries clear.  Under UV light, the coating glows blue aiding police to locate the marked locations. 
  • The adhesive takes up to 1 hour to become touch dry and hard cured in 72 hours.  Protect from moisture for 24 hours after application. 
  • The microdots are visible as small black specs on light coloured surfaces.  In all cases, we recommend that DataDotDNA® is applied in concealed non-aesthetically important areas, avoiding direct sunlight.
  • Do not apply DataDotDNA® to moving parts or areas which could interfere with mechanical movements / electronic components. If accidentally applied to an area you wish to remain free of marking, immediately wipe off with a damp cloth.
