    not sure. but i bought a can of "plasti-coat" or something and just dipped the magnets in it, let them dry for a few hours and be good to go.

    I usually just take gasket sealant, apply a ring around the chrome cover and edge of the magnet to keep the paint from coming into contact with the sharp edges, but still lets the magnet make full contact with the roof surface. I've never had a problem with scratches doing that. Although, I still take the light off once in a while to wash and wax thoroughly to make sure no rust or scratches start.

    thanks!!!


    Also did it make a big difference on the pull of the magnet?

    How much weaker does it make it with the rubber boot on?

    Can you still drive with the light bar on?

    yah i bought a able 2 led bar with the first generation leds and the rubber boots worked great ..... 3.5 are the 90lb pull .... once you stick the bar to the roof the rubber boots act like suction cups between the magnet and metal surface .. when i had my bar on my roof 3 months ago .. the bar never moved no rings no rust nothin ... but if you let the bar set up on the roof for a while the bar will pull off and the rubber boots stick to the metal .. but then you just peel them off and clean em up ... very durable

    for $10 dollars its priceless ........ i would have gave you my other set but my dog ripped em all up but one .. LOL ....

    I just emailed the company to ask for the diameter. I need a set also but my Whelen Responder has the smaller magnets and I think those boots are to big.

    I talked to Sara at Priority 1 Yesterday and she said they carry the smaller boots (2-2 1/4 dia)also but are out of stock and could take a number of weeks to get. They are the same price.

    I'm going to try and see if I turn the boots upside down and place them on the roof where the magnets will contact if they will work and maybe just act like a suction cup?
