Installing Metal Sill Plates

It is advisable that the sill plates are installed on a warmer day or alternatively lightly warm the area of application with a hair dryer.


  • Identify left and right sill plate parts
  • Use the alcohol wipe provided to clean the door sill to remove all dirt, water, moisture and grease from the paint surface & allow to dry
  • Lightly mark the chosen position of the sill plate on the door sill
  • Peel back & fold at right angles the first 2" of the double sided tape protective backing on the long edges so that the tabs created extend beyond the edge
  • Remove backing from the double sided tape at each end of the sill (short sides)
  • Locate sill in position & press down each end
  • Using tabs created on the long pieces of double sided tape slowly peel down the length being careful not to tear the backing part way (rear edge first)
  • Press the sill plate down fully
  • Repeat for other side
