Instructions on releasing Hold Open Mechanism


  • Manufacturing: Black Print Text on White Vinyl
  • Base Material: White U/V resistant Vinyl
  • Backing: Gray Pressure Sensitive Adhesive
  • Properties: Flexible and Durable, Easy to apply

Description: 2 included per order

This decal is used on interior and exterior School Bus emergency doors equipped with Hold-Open Mechanism. While originally made for inside of window glass to be viewed outside, we found some glass tints to interfere with reading visibility.
We now make this pair of decals be applied on interior of glass as well as exterior of glass so instructions can clearly be read from both interior and exterior vantages equally.
Hold-Open Devices are those that lock the door in an open position when fully opened, then unlocked when moving the door to the fully opened position once more.
The decal gives instructions on how the device works and is printed in Black Ink on a White background making it clearly visible.
The text reads as follows:
To release opened door from held position
• Open Door
• Close Door
It is formatted as in above image.

Decal is manufactured using High Performance Calendered Vinyl made in the U.S.A.. A Black print on White Vinyl using vinyl and inks with U/V stabilisers. Extremely durable and high quality material with flexible properties that assist in easy application and the reduction of bubbles during application.

Apply to clean surface. It is necessary for surfaces to be free of all dirt, oil, Silicone, etc. as these can cause adhesives to fail as well as reduce the life of decals and striping.

Applications should be made when surface temperatures are above 50° F.  Applying to surfaces that are in direct sun and hot may be difficult. If possible, apply to surfaces that are in shade.
Surfaces that have been painted, need at least 72 hours for paint to completely cure and “gas-out” before applying vinyl decals or reflective striping.
Do not use liquids to apply any reflective decals or striping as this will cause damage.
