Place two stakes at either end of the area you wish to protect.
Tie the tape to one of the stakes, ensuring that your knot is firm.
Pull the tape towards the other stake, allowing a little slack so that it can rustle in the wind.
Twist the tape, so that it spirals from end to end.
Finish by tying the remaining end onto the unused stake.
If you live in an area which is susceptible to heavy winds, you will want to limit the length of the tape which you install.
Short strips of about 1-2ft will remain effective, whilst maximizing durability.
When possible, ensure that the tape is not installed in a position where it is possible for it to be blown against an abrasive surface, as this will cause the reflective pattern to wear.
When tying directly to an area you wish to protect, it is imperative that you remain safe.
Do not attempt to install the tape at height without the appropriate safety equipment.
Once you are comfortable that you are in no danger of injury, hang the tape in strips measuring 3-4ft, securing with a sturdy knot.
The strips should be spaced at intervals of 2 to 3 feet, for maximum efficiency.
For full effectiveness the tape should be hung above the area you wish to protect.
This can often be achieved with the use of a line: a length of rope/cord etc.
Cut strips from your roll of tape and tie them to your line – We recommend a spacing of 2-3 feet.
Secure the tape with a tack or staple.
Fold the tape over itself three times before placing the staple in.
