You Will Need:

  • Alcohol based Spirit - Available from Hardware Stores - To clean the glue off shelves, usually if you are replacing old data strips
  • A Spatula - It is helpful though not necessary to remove glue from shelving
  • Any Cleaning product - Use to clean the dust off shelving especially if your gondola has been sitting for a while.

Clean the Fronts of the Shelves:

Adhere the Data Strip to the Shelves:

  • Measure the Shelves

  • Start at one end of the shelf. Peel a small amount of the double-sided tape at the back and press the Data Strip gently in to position on the front of the shelf. Continue peeling the tape as you move along the shelf.
  • Make sure the top of the Data Strip is lined up with the top of the Shelf.
