Briggs & Riley Torq™ Spinners are made of 100% virgin polycarbonate. Due to the nature of all polycarbonate cases, the bags will naturally receive surface scratches and scuffs during use. These marks are cosmetic and do not impede the functional aspects of the bag. Use these tips to keep your Torq™ bag in good condition.
Storage and Use:
• When your Torq™ Spinner is not in use, we suggest you store it in the soft fabric bag provided.
• Be sure to pack your bag properly. Most repairs on polycarbonate cases are due to bags being over-packed or way under-packed.
• Don’t sit on your Torq™ Spinner while waiting in line. Hardside cases are not designed to be a seat.
General Cleaning and Care:
The polycarbonate exterior can be cleaned with a solution of mild soap and warm water, applied with a soft cloth or wash cloth.
For Mild Surface Marks:
Some surface marks can be buffed out. Check with your nearest authorized Briggs & Riley Repair Center to see if the mild surface marks on your Torq™ bag can be buffed out.
For Scuff Marks:
We recommend using any spot remover or rubbing alcohol. Avoid other chemical cleaners, as they will damage the clear-coat finish and leave a sticky residue. Apply the remover or rubbing alcohol to a soft cloth and gently rub the scuff mark. Remember to treat the scuffed area only, not the entire bag.
