Installing AeroHance Pods is Easy!

Step-by-step instructions for installation on passenger vehicles for which optimum placement is on the roof or trunk.

 

Installation for Trucks, Buses and RV

AeroHance Pod Types

AeroHance Pods come in kits of nine and can easily be installed on any passenger vehicle with two attachment options.

Magnetic-backed Pods for metallic surfaces

Magnetic-backed Pods can be attached and detached repeatedly. A cushioned, gripping surface pad protects your car’s paint from scratching.

Adhesive-backed Pods for non-metallic surfaces

Adhesive-backed Pods adhere permanently to fiberglass, stainless steel, polyurethane, or plastic, and are attached with peel-and-stick adhesive that won’t damage paint.

Step-by-step instructions for installation on passenger vehicles for which optimum placement is on the roof or trunk.

 

Front & Back of AeroHance Pods

The bulbous shape should be placed facing the front of your vehicle, the pointed end should be placed facing rearward.

Step 1: Clean the Area

Thoroughly clean the area on the surface of the vehicle where AeroHance Pods are to be placed.

Step 2: Check Base Pad or Tape

Make sure the base pad or tape is securely affixed to the bottom of the AeroHance Pod.

Step 3: Center the First AeroHance Pod

Place the first AeroHance Pod at the center point between the right and left side of the vehicle.

Step 4: Place AeroHance Pods at the Edges

Place a 2nd and 3rd AeroHance Pods on the outside right and left edges of the vehicle.

Step 5: Check Range of Motion

Confirm that the placement of AeroHance Pods allow a full range of movement for doors, windows, or lift gates.

Step 6: Check Base Pad or Tape

Between the center POD and the right edge POD, create a row of Pods that are equidistant from one another, for most vehicles this will 4 to 5 inches apart. And, then do the same between the center Pod and the left edge POD. Air is dynamic and small variation in placement will not adversely affect performance.

Step 7: Mark AeroHance Pod Placement

Position the Aerohance Pods on the vehicle as described in steps 1 through 6. Using a wax pencil, or soap wedge trace around each AeroHance Pod, being careful not to move them. Tracing marks can easily be wiped off after installation.

Step 8: Remove Adhesive Covering off AeroHance Pods

Peel off the covering on the Pods underside to expose the adhesive that will bond the AeroHance Pods to the surface of the vehicle.

Step 9: Carefully Place AeroHance Pods where Marked

Remembering to place the bulbous end of the Pods forward, carefully place each AeroHance Pod inside the area you traced with the wax pencil or soap. Make sure to press down firmly to secure the Pods in place.

AeroHance Pods PLACEMENT

Optimum placement is just before smooth air flow running with the car body turns turbulent. One cause of turbulence, or drag, is when the air streaming past the vehicle meets the low pressure (vacuum) that follows behind all vehicles. That low pressure pushes back against the streamline air flow, changing it from laminar (smooth) to turbulent (drag). The engine must work to overcome that drag, which consumes fuel.

 

Sedan, hatchback, SUV, wagon, for example, with a blunt, vertical rear then, then place array running 7″-10″ forward of the back trunk or the rear roof line.

Compact, Hatchback or SUV with extended round rear, placement is closer to the rear edge.

Place on the spoiler or along the rear edge for a coupe.

Air is fluid, so minor variance in placement range will not adversely affect results.
