Measure your Radiator

Roll the insulation out and mark the measurement you have just taken.
Cut the Radiator Insulation
Where you have marked, draw a straight line and cut all the way so you have a piece that is perfect to size.
Mark where the Radiator Brackets Sit
Prior to removing the backing off the double sided tape, hold the insulation above the radiator as if you were about to install it. Instead, just mark the place where the radiator brackets sit.
Cut to allow for the Radiator Brackets
Cut the insulation, where you have market it to allow for the insulation material to slot over the radiator brackets comfortably.
Apply the Double Sided Tape
Apply and then peel the backing off the double sided adhesive tape. Place behind the radiator. When neatly in place, then put a little pressure where the tape sits so it holds securely in to place.
