Frequently asked Questions
WHAT ARE AERIAL BALLS MADE OF?
The majority of our Aerial Balls are made from a high-density, soft foam material. The soft foam is a material which retains its shape and is very light weight. The soft foam expands over most car aerials.
TIPS ON FITTING THEM.
Hold the aerial/antenna firmly with one hand while pushing the ball onto the end of the aerial with your other hand. This will avoid bending the aerial and causing damage to it.
A very small drop of fairy liquid dripped onto the hole in the ball will help it slip onto the end of the aerial/antenna with more ease
WHERE ELSE CAN I USE THEM?
Our Balls are also suitable as pencil toppers or can be pushed onto springs (also supplied by us) turning them into wobblers, and mounted on virtually any surface such as your dashboard, desk or PC.
Please note that the 'springs' are not intended for use on the aerial or exterior of the car as this could cause damage to the paintwork.
DO YOU HAVE AERIAL BALLS FOR ELECTRIC AERIALS?
No. We do not offer electric aerial/antenna adapters for use with electric aerials because we have found over the years, that they do not fit most car aerials and may cause damage.
THE AERIAL ON MY CAR IS THICKER THAN THE USUAL AERIALS AND THE HOLE IN THE BALL IS TOO SMALL?
The holes in the balls are all predrilled to the same size during production and are made to fit car aerials up to 7mm wide, such as image 'A' shown below. For the thicker aerials like type 'B' we can drill a larger hole into the Topper so that it will fit. The thicker aerials are usually 1cm wide, so we drill an 8mm hole into the Topper to allow for a snug fit so that it does not come off while you are driving. If you decide to do this yourself then please use extreme caution and use protective gloves where necessary to avoid injury. Our Toppers are made of high density foam and so a drill can very easily come through the top of the Ball.
Please Note: Larger holes can only be made in Toppers that are Round in shape. We cannot drill larger holes into our flat Toppers such as Glitter Stars, Butterflies and Flags as they are too likely to split in half. Please feel free to contact us if you would like any further information about which Toppers can be altered and which ones can't.
If you know at the time of your order that you need a larger hole in the item you have purchased then please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us the name on your order and which item/s you would like altered. We will then be sure to amend your Toppers before posting.
If you have the standard aerial 'A' you should be fine however if your aerial looks more like 'B' then it is likely you will need to have the holes made larger.
