performance of your phone. Together with an Outside Antenna, the Sleek’s state-of-the-art circuitry is
designed to increase your phone’s signal to and from the cell tower. The Sleek 4G reduces disconnects
and dropouts and increases data communication rates on 2G, 3G and 4G networks.

How it Works
With the phone in the cradle and while using a wireless Bluetooth® headset (or hands free device) the
Outside Antenna collects the cell tower signal and sends it through the cable to the Sleek 4G. The signal
is then boosted by the Sleek 4G and sent to the phone. When the phone transmits, the signal is picked
up wirelessly and boosted by the Sleek 4G and transmitted back to the cell tower through the Outside
Antenna.
NOTE: The cell phone must be placed in the cradle to work properly.

Warning: DO NOT use phone covers that have chrome or any other metallic surface. It may block cellular signals.
NOTE: See the Warnings section for additional information.
Vehicle Installation
1. Install the Outside Antenna
To receive the best cell signal, select a location for the Outside Antenna that is preferably in the center of
the vehicle’s roof, 12 inches away from any other antennas, free of obstructions, and at least 6 inches from
the rear and side windows or sunroof.
The Outside Antenna must be installed vertically. Antenna performance will be degraded if the antenna is
not vertical. The antenna cable is small yet strong enough that it may be shut in most vehicle doors without
damaging the cable.
NOTE: For a more professional looking
installation, run the antenna cable under
the door seal. Carefully pull down the
door seal. Run the cable under the seal
and push the seal back into place. This
prevents constant wear and tear on the
cable as the door opens and closes.
The antenna cable is small enough to
easily tuck under the door seal or plastic
molding.

2. Attach the Mounting Bracket
(included in this package)
a. Clean the area where the bracket is to be mounted with the supplied alcohol wipe. Allow to dry.
b. Peel the backing to expose the adhesive and press the bracket onto the desired location in the vehicle. Note: Be sure the tab is positioned vertically, not horizontally.
c. Allow the adhesive to cure for 24 hours before you attach the Sleek 4G.
3. Attach the Sleek® 4G to the Bracket
Once you have installed the bracket in the desired location, and waited 24 hours for adhesive to cure, attach the Sleek 4G by aligning the rectangular
hole
on its back with the tab on the mount bracket, grasping

Understanding the Sleek® 4G Lights
Separation of Sleek 4G and the Outside Antenna is very important. In a vehicle, the metal roof acts as
a barrier and helps shield the two antennas from each other, preventing oscillation (feedback).
Oscillation can occur when the roof mounted antenna is too close to the Sleek 4G inside the vehicle. An
oscillation (or feedback) in the Sleek 4G is similar to when a microphone is too close to a speaker in sound
system, resulting in a loud whistle. An oscillation in the Sleek 4G, if allowed to occur, can affect nearby cell
towers’ ability to handle calls.
Sleek® 4G SYMPTOM: Red light is on
The Sleek 4G has oscillation protection – which means the Signal Booster powers down to protect the
cell tower. See section above “Separation of Sleek 4G and the Outside Antenna is very important.”
The RED light indicates the outside roof mounted antenna needs to be farther apart from the Sleek
4G. In a vehicle installation, move the Outside Antenna on the roof of the car farther to the rear of
the car, but at least 6 inches from the rear and side windows or sunroof. To reset the Sleek 4G,
disconnect and reconnect the power supply. If the light is now green, the Sleek 4G is working
properly. If the RED light is still on, move the Outside Antenna farther away and repeat the process.
NOTE: The cell phone must be placed in the Sleek 4G to work properly. Use a Bluetooth® or hands free device.
Troubleshooting
SYMPTOM: No increase in bars
1. Make sure that the antenna connector is tight.
2. The cell phone must be placed in the Sleek 4G cradle to amplify properly.

In-Building Installation
Installing a Wilson Electronics Outside Antenna in a Building
Follow the specific antenna instructions included with the Outside Antenna (sold separately except for
certain kits). These instructions assume that you are using a Wilson Electronics Mini-Magnet Mount
Antenna and the optional suction cup window bracket.
To receive the best signal, select a window on the side of your building
where your outside signal is the strongest.
Attach the suction cup bracket to the inside of a window so that the cable
will reach the location of the Sleek 4G. Place the bracket as high on the
window as possible for best performance.
Once the bracket is in place, attach the magnet base of the antenna to the
flat surface of the bracket. Note: The antenna must be installed vertically.
Signal performance will be degraded if the antenna is not vertical.
Installing the Wilson Electronics Sleek 4G® Signal Booster in a Building
The Wilson Electronics Sleek 4G may be placed in any convenient indoor location, such as a desk or
tabletop. The cell phone or data card must be in the cradle and use a Bluetooth® headset or wired hands
free device for voice communications.
Attaching the Antenna
Once you have selected the location for the Sleek 4G, run the cable from the Outside Antenna and
attach it to the connector on the bottom of the Sleek 4G.

NOTE: The Sleek 4G and the Outside Antenna
must have a minimum separation of 3
feet to prevent oscillation.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
• It is very important to power your Signal Booster using a surge protected AC Power Strip
with at least a 1000 Joule rating.
• Failure to do this will void your warranty in the event of a power surge or lightning strike.
