Top Carstache FAQ
Will getting a Carstache® really change my life?
Yes, it will make your life better.
What is the Carstache® made out of?
The short answer is that Carstaches are made from acrylic faux fur, polyester stuffing, and polyester fabric on the back. It's all synthetic materials.
How big is the Carstache®?
Big enough! Here are some approximate Carstache™ sizes:
Length: 34" | Width: 12" | Depth: 3" Weight: 16 oz
Why aren't there more Carstache® colors and styles of mustache?
Patience please... we're working on making more styles and colors. If you have any special requests please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The more you request a specific color or style, the quicker we'll get on it.
What happens if the Carstache® gets wet?
Carstaches are weather resistant. They're made from synthetic materials that resist mold and mildew so it's ok if it gets wet, just let it dry out. Don't let it sit wet for days and days, but a little rain won't hurt it. Wind from driving actually acts as a natural blow dryer, so just drive around for a bit once it stops raining and it should fluff right back up to it's full glory. DO NOT MACHINE DRY. Just let it air dry. See the Care Instructions Guide
What happens if the Carstache® gets dirty?
If your Carstache™ gets dirty, remove it from your car and wash it with soap and water. DO NOT MACHINE WASH. Give it a nice combing, a massage, whisper a few kinds words, and then strap it back on and hit the road. Also, see the Care Instructions section for more details.
How do I attach the Carstache™ to my car?
It's really easy. The Carstache comes with three rubber coated Attaching Wires and you just strap it onto your car grille. Check out the Carstache™ Installation Guide
Is the Carstache® compatible with my car model?
Carstaches fit on MOST cars, but not every car model. If your car has a front grille then it should work fine. If your car does not have a front grille, then it probably won't work. For example, Porches and Beetles don't have front grilles, so a Carstache™ most likely won't fit. (Sorry Porsche and Beetle owners, we'll try to figure something out since it would look amazing).
Will the Carstache® cover my front license plate? Is this legal?
On most car models your Carstache™ will not cover your license plate, but on some car models it will. The laws about covering or removing your front license plate vary by country and state. You should consult local laws before installing your Carstache®.
Are Carstaches really woven from Unicorn hair?
Yes the 'stache fur is made from 100% genuine wild Unicorn hair*
*That was a lie, it's made from synthetic faux fur. No unicorns were harmed or murdered making your Carstache®

Please read and follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper installation and use.
NOTE: Only begin Carstache® installation when car engine is cold. Do not install Carstache™ while car engine is running.
TIP: Put the wires on your car grille first, then attache the Carstache®
Step 1: Place Attaching-Wires on car grille
Take each of the three attaching-wires and loop them through your car grille (see Figure 1A)
USE ALL THREE ATTACHING-WIRES.
Space the three wires so that they will align as closely as possible with the three Wire-Sleeves (see Figure 1B) on the back of the Carstache®.
Step 2: Fasten Attaching-Wires to Wire-Sleeves on Carstache®
NOTE: You will repeat this step three times to secure each of the three Attaching Wires one at a time.
Thread one end of the first Attaching-Wire through the coinciding Attaching-Sleeve on the Carstache® (see Figure 2A). (Make sure not to pull the Attaching-Wire off of the car grille)
Pull the wire tight so that the Carstache® is snug against the car grille. (See Figure 2B)
Twist the attaching-wire around itself MULTIPLE TIMES to secure the Carstache® in place. (See Figure 2c)
NOTE: Tuck any excess wire behind the Carstache®. DO NOT stick extra wire back through the car grille into the engine compartment.
GUIDELINES ON PROPER CARSTACHE® USE:
Please read and adhere to the following guidelines on proper Carstache® use.
- A Carstache® is a novelty automotive accessory. It is not a toy. It is intended for adult use only.
- Only begin Carstache® installation when car engine is cold. Do not install Carstache® while car engine is running.
- Carstache® should not cover your headlights. If your headlights are covered do not use.
- Do not use Carstache® while driving on Interstates or at Highway Speeds.
- Carstache® is not intended for use while traveling over 40 MPH (64 KPH).
- To prevent theft, remove your Carstache® when leaving vehicle unattended.
- Do not alter Carstache® or Attaching Wires in any way. Do not substitute other fastener materials in place of the included Attaching Wires.
- Always fasten Carstache® securely using all three attaching wires.
- Always twist attaching wires around themselves multiple times to secure Carstache® in place.
- With some car models, your Carstache® may cover, or partially cover, your license plate. Laws governing the covering and/or removal of front license plates vary by country and state. Consult local laws before installing your Carstache®.
- Carstaches and Bikestaches are made from synthetic materials and are Weather Resistant.
- If Carstache/Bikestache becomes wet, allow to air dry. DO NOT MACHINE DRY. Wind from driving/riding will help the natural drying process (think of it like a natural blow-dryer). Do not blow dry on high heat.

- If you love your 'stache, and care for it, you'll be riding together for years to come.
