The Flex Aware was designed with the user in mind and is easy to install without the need for a professional installer. 
 
In your box you will find 2 screws, zip ties, and dual lock tape. You can determine which installation method to use based upon your installation location.  
  • Use screws for an extremely durable, permanent solution on wooden or other penetrable surfaces, like barn doors or wooden gates. 
  • Use zip ties for metallic, impenetrable surfaces that are thin enough for the zip ties to wrap around, like pool gates or metal pasture gates. 
  • Use Dual Lock tape for smooth, clean surfaces  or for temporary solutions, like rental properties or delivery boxes.
