Installation is very easy and takes about 20 minutes, ADDITIONAL TRIMMING is required. This can be done with a simple pair of scissors, razor, knife etc. Product is backed with strong 3M adhesive so installation is easy and requires no drilling or screws.

♦️ Make sure it's at least 60 degrees before installing it. This makes the molding more pliable and easy to maneuver around corners, and also helps it to adhere to the edge of the door.
♦️ Place on edge of door while it's still in the large strip and cut the first piece on the shortest door (it's just easier). Then use that as a guide for the matching door on the other side of the vehicle and cut a second piece. Do that for the next door on the same side of the vehicle and again, use that as a guide for the opposite side of the vehicle. You will then have four pieces of the correct lengths by only measuring for two.
♦️ Have a rubber mallet on hand OR be prepared to tightly grip the edge and run a microfiber cloth over it several times gripping on it to make sure that it's adhering to the door. Let it sit undisturbed for 24 hours out of the rain (no car washing either) for 24 hours if possible.
♦️ MOST IMPORTANTLY use rubbing alcohol over the edges of your door to clean off all wax and dirt prior to trying to install this product. Let the alcohol dry fully after the first cleansing and then do it a second time, again letting it dry fully before attempting to install the product.
♦️ Start at the top of the door and pull the 3M (sticky) strip back a few inches at a time as you place the molding into place - firmly clamping with your fingers as you go. Take your time and make sure the bend in the "L" is flush against the edge of your door. Rub out any bumps as you clamp and move down the door.
If you take your time and prep the surface, you'll get great results with this product. It's much easier to use than 'U' shaped edge kits and infinitely cheaper than the dealer offerings!
* Ease installation. I even had to removed once or twice I had misplaced it in some areas.
* Easy to trim. I used a razor blade (box cutter) to shape both ends to ensure proper fitting and look
* This was plenty for all four doors, and I had a good portion left, however it was not useful in case of replacing a strip already cut or used.
* I have had it installed for over two months now and washed the car and the trim still remains put.
* I can see that once I decide to remove it, it can be done very easily and without damaging the car's paint. Obviously a little cleaning will be needed to removed glue residue.
One suggestion: since one can only cut one tip when not installed on car, I used the same razor, very very carefully I pressed on it as to NOT hit the car. I tried placing a "safety net" between the trim and the car, but there's very little room to do so as I was trying to get the right length.
I've had the True Line product on my black Yukon XL for over a month and it has survived blistering summer temps in excess of 120 degrees and it shows no sign of loosening or falling off.
