The sticky pad is a proprietary blend of rubber material that sticks best to smooth, solid surfaces. While the sticky pad provides temporary adhesion to surfaces for quick shots, it is not intended for permanent attachment.
Here are some tips to keep the Sticky Pad in its best condition:
1) Be careful when applying to surfaces. The sticky pad can be extremely strong and rip paint, drywall, e.g. any surface that can be damaged by a very powerful tape. Peel Podo off slowly and carefully when removing sticky pad from any surface.
2) Wash Podo between each use to ensure maximum sticking ability. Wet a finger and wipe until foreign particles are cleared off and the pad is smooth again. Using heat to dry the sticky pad, like an automatic hand dryer or hair dryer temporarily increases stickiness of the material.
3) Sometimes a surface will leave very fine dust on the sticky pad. Take some weak tape (like Scotch-brand tape) and use it to lift particles off the pad like a lint roller. Rubbing alcohol may help clean foreign residues from the pad.
To get a good grip when removing the sticky pad, we recommend grasping the edges of the sticky pad with your fingertips, not the Podo body itself, and pry from one direction. A circular twisting motion also aids in loosening the pad's grip.
Sticky pads decrease slightly in stickiness compared to its brand new state, but will maintain an effective level of stickiness for the life of the product. If for whatever reason you would like a replacement, contact us to purchase one for $5 + shipping.
