The RFID Transponder Tag is an adhesive strip with an electronic circuit inside of it. It must be mounted properly in order to show up when you cross the finish line—and there are a lot of ways to do it wrong. For example, if the tag is too close to conductive metal (which is found inside helmets), it can "de-tune" the tag's frequency and make it unreliable. Just follow the steps and you'll be fine.
First, DON'T PLACE AN RFID TAG OVER ANOTHER RFID TAG. We call this "stacking tags." Neither tag will work if you do this. If you have multiple tags on your visor, make sure there's ~1/2" of space between them.
There are lots of ways to do this wrong.
It's WRONG to apply your RFID tag in the incorrect place or orientation—this will cause problems.
It's WRONG to stack RFID tags on top of each other.
It's WRONG to apply your RFID tag anywhere, then peel it off and re-apply it—this can damage the circuitry. If you must remove your RFID tag, you must purchase a replacement.
It's WRONG to fold the tag prior to applying it—this can damage the circuitry.
It's WRONG to apply the tag to a surface that contains metal or carbon fiber. If your visor contains either of these, then utilize the alternative mounting location behind the front number plate.
Photocopying or laser scanning an RFID tag causes electromagnetic effects which can ruin the tag. So, it's WRONG to expose the RFID tag to photocopying, scanning, or lasers.
