When it comes to radar detectors and laser defense systems, Handcrafted Auto Marine and Off-Road in Chandler offers expert installation services. While we carry some of the top products in the industry, how we integrate those solutions into your vehicle plays a key role in determining the performance and reliability of your radar and laser detection system. Let’s look at a few of the important steps we take to ensure that you get the best value for your investment.
We Treat Your Vehicle Like Royalty
Our team at Handcrafted starts by protecting our client vehicles with shipping wrap around the door sills, fenders and trunk edges. We carefully remove trim panels to access wiring routing and component installation locations. If we remove the front and rear bumper covers, we store them on padded blankets well away from the vehicle to make sure they won’t be damaged.
Radar Detector Wiring
We plan how we will make electrical connections and run wires and cables before we begin work. We solder all wire-to-wire connections to maximize mechanical reliability and efficient electrical conductivity. The connections are protected with heat-shrink tubing or premium vinyl tape before we wrap them in automotive-grade cloth tape. Finally, we secure all the cables so they won’t rattle or buzz as you are driving.
We install all sensor quick-connects in locations that are easily visible and accessible by factory service technicians. Even if they’ve never touched a radar and laser detector before, they will understand how to disconnect the wiring safely and quickly.
Radar Antenna and Laser Sensor Installation
Our laser defense systems may feature as many as five sensors to provide optimized protection. Each of these units is mounted securely to prevent vibration. We must adjust the sensors so that each one is perfectly parallel to the ground and absolutely perpendicular to the road for proper operation. Failure to meet these minimum requirements, along with several other manufacturer’s guidelines, will result in unreliable functionality and may not offer any protection.
Our team takes pride in ensuring that all mounting locations we choose blend cosmetically with the vehicle. Custom mounting pods for laser sensor installation on the rear of a vehicle are one of our specialties.
All the brackets we make for radar receiver and laser sensor installation use corrosion-resistant materials and stainless-steel fasteners to ensure reliability and serviceability.
Easy and Intuitive Radar Control Installation
For radar detectors, being able to hear warnings from the system is crucial. We take care to locate warning speakers so that those sounds will be audible. For laser defense systems, you need quick and intuitive access to the control panel once the system detects police lidar is in use. We work with each client to choose an easily accessible mounting location and, where required, construct custom brackets, pods or trim panels for an end result that looks great.
