What size SmoothLock do I need?

That depends on your vehicle. Review the Fitment Guide for information.

What colors do they come in?

Due to the large variety of vehicle paint codes and colors out there, we only offer them gloss black. However, they can be painted any color after you receive them. See the next question for painting information

Can I paint them to match my car?

Yes, they can be painted to match your car. If you want to paint yours, you need to make sure the paint will stick to the SmoothLock. We suggest using an adhesion promoter such as Dupli-Color CP199 Clear Adhesion Promoter Primer – 11 oz. or similar product. Once the primer has dried, you can spray paint the SmoothLocks…

Painting Method #1 (recommended) – Take a large piece of cardboard and lay it flat. Push a pin (or small headed nail) into it so it is standing straight up. Carefully peel the SmoothLock from the backing paper (handling it by its edges) and lightly place the adhesive side on the top end of the pin just enough so it is secure. Paint it using only as many light coats as needed, not allowing the paint or any debris to get under the SmoothLock and stuck to the adhesive. Once dried, carefully remove the SmoothLock and gently apply to your clean lock surface.

Painting Method #2 Paint the SmoothLock while on the backing paper using as many light coats as needed. Once the paint dries, use a very sharp X-Acto knife to trim around the edge of the SmoothLock. This will make it easier to remove it from the backing paper without cracking the paint.

Do you make them for (insert vehicle here)?

SmoothLocks fit a variety of vehicle locks, but in order to make sure they fit yours please review the fitment guide.

If you are unsure, please feel free to get in touch with us.

How much of the lock is covered?

SmoothLocks cover the flat face of the lock. It does not cover any area between the face of the lock and the vehicle. If you paint your SmoothLocks to match your car, you may have to paint part of the lock, depending on your style of lock.

How do I apply them to my locks?

It only takes a few moments to apply a SmoothLock. First, thoroughly clean the lock surface and ensure there it is free from grease or dirt. You may need to use a gentle solvent like Goo Gone or rubbing alcohol. Then simply apply the Smoothlock by peeling it from the backing paper and then aligning it on the lock surface and firmly placing it.

I think my SmoothLock is coming loose. What do I do?

We use some pretty tough adhesive but if you ever feel that a SmoothLock is losing its adhesive grip, carefully remove it completely (see the first Bonus Tip above), clean the lock surface thoroughly, place a very thin layer of clear silicone automotive adhesive on the back of the SmoothLock and replace.

Do you offer them with Camaro or Firebird logos?

We do not offer SmoothLocks with any vehicle logos on them. Many people ask why and here is the answer: the whole point of a SmoothLock is to make the door locks blend in with the rest of the vehicle, not stand out.

Can I order from you direct?

Yes, by ordering from Camaro Collectibles

What is the SmoothLock warranty information?

We stand by this product 100%. If it is not to your satisfaction you may return it for a full refund as long as it is unused and in new condition. Unfortunately, there are no returns/refunds due to theft, damage, misuse, modification (including painting), and installation. If ordering from a dealer, please review their return policies as they may vary.

What is the thin white layer between the SmoothLock and the adhesive?

If you are not painting yours and are leaving them black, you will notice a very thin white line around the base of the SmoothLock. This is to make sure the adhesive doesn’t detach. If you like, you can take the flat edge of a black magic marker and carefully run it around the edge of the SmoothLock to cover up the white line before you install it.

Do SmoothLocks help with car security?

SmoothLocks are for decoration and appearance enhancement only, and since they are held on with an adhesive, they provide no solid security for the door lock mechanism. At best, a potential thief may be confused by the lock not being exposed.

Do Smoothlocks work with Jeep Wranglers?

We currently do not have size that fits Jeep Wranglers, but we get asked this question a lot. The problem is that by design, Smoothlocks need a flat surface to adhere to and the Jeep locks have a slight bevel to them. While the adhesive we use is pretty strong and preliminary testing has found them to stick well to a Jeep lock, painting them to match the exterior color is tough because the paint will need to flex as the SmoothLock “wraps” around the lock face.

The bottom line is, we are looking into making them for Jeep Wranglers, but need some input first to make sure we do them right. If you are a Jeep Wrangler owner interested in SmoothLocks, please contact us and let us know so we can keep you informed.
