Fixture maintenance and care recommendations 
We recommend the maintenance steps below to keep your products in
good condition for many years to come.
Moving parts:  Door hinges and latches are subject to freezing if not properly lubricated.
We recommend that all moving parts be lubricated with oil such as WD-40 to ensure 
that they do not bind and function properly.
Suggested 2 times/year
Finish maintenance:
Finishes will fade over time, but can be restored using the following techniques.

1:  First wipe down the fixture with a moist soft cloth to remove dirt, dust and debris and let dry.
2:  Apply a light coating of high-grade non-abrasive car wax. Use a brand that contains a UV blocker or
UV inhibitors. Do not use compound-type waxes for this purpose. This type of wax contains abrasives that can 
harm the finish.Be sure to wipe off any globs of wax that remain on the surface. If any wax remains on the surface,
it could bake into place when exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet light. This can cause permanent staining.
3:  Use a clean dry soft cloth to remove the excess wax.

The car wax will restore the finish and keep it looking new for years. Suggested 2 times/year.
