Installation of screen protectors

I went to my local best buy to purchase a screen protector. I've owned probably 10 or more in the past few years, but I either couldn't get all the air bubbles out or I couldn't line it correctly and I would always throw them away. I purchased the Zagg protectors for the front and back. I talked with a rep and he said he would guarantee that he could install it with no air bubbles and he could line it up perfectly. I took him up on the offer and he did exactly what he said, perfectly alligned and not one tiny air bubble at all. I could have never done that, so if you have an experienced rep at your local Best Buy, I'd suggest to give them a try. Also, they normally charge like $5.00 to install it, but he did for free since I was buying something else.

Zagg also has some mall kiosks-I highly recommend not only the Zagg stuff, but getting them to apply.

Re: Installation of screen protectors

The trick is to do it very quickly. I've noticed through trial and error that most bubbles form because of dust particles... it drives me insane... just one dust particle and Bam! a bubble I can't remove.

 

So the trick is to prepare the screen... wipe it down clean (lol rhyme?) and when everything looks great peel the protector and apply it quickly. one dust particle lying on the screen and that's one bubble that you aren't going to remove anytime soon. Very annoying.

Those darn screen protectors are a pain; I have to get a few for my Mythic, and maybe I'll have the guy at the Best Buy store apply iy for me. ;P Smiley Wink

I think you posted this on another thread also?

 

With those style films, overnight isn't enough.  Outside may be dry but the adhesive often isn't fully set until at least 24-48hrs after application.

Waiting for these cats to make an i4 one. You get the screen pre-attached.

Me and my neighbor had Best Buy install our ZAGGs as well.  Well worth it.  The guy said that they got a bunch of practice one's earlier in the week.
