Do I need to use a Prep Wipe before applying the Locking Strip.
Yes. When replacing Locking Strip on the Butt Plate, remove any adhesive residue left by the previous Strip. A clean surface is necessary for proper installation of a new Locking Strip.
Do I need to use a Primer Stick.
Yes. If you plan to use your system within 72 hours you should use a Primer Stick. Using a Primer Stick will allow the adhesive on the Locking Strip to achieve its maximum cure strength in just a few hours versus 72 hours without the Primer. Use of the Butt Plate before the adhesive has cured will can result in a weaker mount and may cause the Locking Strip to come off or have a weakened attachment to the Butt Plate.
