What do I do with the packaging?
One of our customers was very pleased to turn his tube into storage for his fishing rods. Please recycle if you can.
Can I trim the bristle after it has been installed?
We do not recommend trying to trim the bristle yourself. The bristles are dense and it is difficult to cut the bristle into an even line. We recommend the Strip Brush Sample Pack so that you can choose the right bristle length first time.
