  2. Don’t drive over 35 MPH, just to be safe.
  3. Use only light weight thin plastic items never taller than 4 inches or so.
  4. Use only super strong magnets as described.
  5. Use super strong Permanent Epoxy glue
  6. Pop it off, NEVER SLIDE IT AS IT CAN MARK THE CAR, when you go in anywhere. (Not for safety but just to make sure it doesn’t get taken!)
