How to Install GlideFree Tape:

Product Instructions

Apply strips 1/2″ apart to create a natural “groove” to slide across during wet or dry transfers. Applying the tape 1/2″ apart will help you slide safely across the board in the correct direction, lengthwise, while preventing unwanted sliding down the narrow side of the board.

Note that GlideFree Tape is not meant to cover the entire surface of your transfer board.

Please check out our downloads tab for detailed instructions on how to apply the tape.
