Here are some common questions about DentGoalie Car Door Protectors.
Which size panels are best for my vehicle; Large or Small?
If unsure of best size; look at your vehicle’s design and measure the flat surface area to accommodate either the 80″x 10″ or 46″x 10″ panel. (The two magnet strips on our panel’s backside, top & bottom edges, extend 10″ apart).
Which durability option do I need: Regular or Heavy Duty?
How much time does it take to attach the panels to my vehicle?
The Suction Cup model (recommended for aluminum or fiberglass/carbon fiber bodies), take minimal time to push & tighten the suction cups for a firm hold.
How are these different than other door dent guards?
How does the security cord work?
Will the panels hold up in hot or cold weather?
Will the magnetic strips scratch my car?
Where is best spot on my vehicle to place the panels?
If your vehicle’s design has deep ridges, sharp curves, or protruding handles, the panels grip best onto the flat exposed surfaces just below a deep ridge-line or non-flush handles. The sweet-spot for optimal protection is below these areas:
The panels may also be attached onto a flush, long ridge-line:
This hi-density foam (for proper protection) will conform to curves in body styles, but does not sharply notch over abrupt edges.
Will the magnet strips on the panels grip to aluminum or fiberglass body parts?
For non-magnetic surfaces, we have the suction-cup door guard available. These are heavy-duty rubber suction cups that are pushed onto the vehicle for a firm seal and quickly hand-tightened for a lasting hold.
