The installation of display protectors is not for the faint of heart. I like to look after my gadgets and have installed many of screen protectors for myself, friends, and family and I have learned the difficult method that you need to take some actions to do it right.
Ensure you’re functioning in a clean, dust-free zone. Have all your instruments nearby, ensure you have clean hands and before you even unwrap your display protector, make sure that the surface area of your display is as clean and dust free as possible.
Since you’re bonding the glass on your gadget to an external plastic or glass, it is important to keep surfaces clean. Some display protectors are available with wet wipes and small microfiber cloths to make sure you can clear away microscopic debris and dust. I always have some pieces of cellophane tape to use in situation I need to lift the screen protector as a way to re-adjust it. This keeps my fingerprints away and makes it possible to change the protector.
I overview the techniques I need to take before I dive in, making a note of what the possible problems will be (usually problems with alignment, trapping dust or debris between display and protector and the most dreaded of all, bubbles).
If you’re successful, you can get a good set up done in one go. If not, try again and note the areas you found complicated. Depending on the product, your results will vary.
Personally, I’d rather have a expert install the protector. Best Buy’s Geek Squad is trained to appropriately install these in minutes.
