Installation is pretty straightforward. For the push plates, simply attach to the surface with the supplied stainless steel screws. For the push bar, door pull, crash bar, and handrail wraps, apply with the supplied high-bond permanent mounting tape. The tape is already applied to the copper cover, simply remove the film on the exposed tape and press firmly into place on the desired existing door hardware. The tape will stick firmly immediately, but obtains maximum adhesion over 24-48 hours. For maximum durability, we suggest firmly taping the copper in place with painters tape for 24 hours.
The Copper Kills It hardware covers are pure, raw, natural copper, and thus over time will develop deep character and beautfiul patina. The copper should be cleaned regularly just like any surface to minimize dirt or any other material that might block the amazing anti-microbial properties of the copper. We recommend cleaning with mild soap and water to remove any surface dirt and keep maximum effectiveness.
If you want to keep the shiny coppery color it has when you install it, simply mix 3 cups of water, 1 cup of vinegar and a teaspon of salt and it should not only clean any surface contaminants off but remove any tarnish that is developing as well.
