[Guide]Perfect application of screen protectors with pics.

Just thought I would share the technique that works the best for me when applying a screen protector.
In the past I have struggled with screen protectors, and got so mad I almost broke a phone over it. So hopefully this can prevent a few people from wanting to pull their hair out.
I have heard of many different methods people use, but for me this has been the easiest and has had the best results for me.
The pictures are of the stock screen protector I just applied to my Touch Pro 2.

Here goes:

-Get a bowl or a cup of water.

-Add a few drops of dish detergent and mix into the water.

-Go into the bathroom and turn the shower on hot to get it steamy to drop any dust to the floor.

-Remove the battery to be extra safe.

-Scrub your fingers with rubbing alcohol to remove oil from your fingers.

-Make sure the screen is clean and dust free.
.
-Peel/open the screen protector.

-Dip it lightly into the soap solution..

-Lay the protector on the screen.

-You should be able to move the protector around enough to prescisly position it.

-Since it is wet there should be very few air bubbles if any, and if there is they will push out very easily when wet.
-In a short time the protector will adhere in place.

-Let dry overnight before putting the battery back in.

-If there are any imperfections they will go away completley in a few days, unless there is dust under it.

-You may notice some light spots/haze/white film in areas after the application, but any spots will go away in 1-2 days.

See the pictures I took, you can barely tell there is a screen protector on at all, not one air bubble or imperfection.


-Good luck!

Extra tips:
**dont go crazy with the solution, just dab a little on the screen and dip the protector lightly and shake off excess before applying.

***Also, I would suggest taking this preventative measure with your moisture sensors.

1- Cut a small piece of paper just a bit bigger than the size of the moisture sensor.
2- stick that to a piece of clear tape.(see pics)
3- Cut out around the paper leaving a little tape on each side of the paper.
4- Place the paper/tape over the sensor.
*never stick tape directly to the sensor because it will pull the sensor right off when you try to remove the tape!
Now you are left with a protected moisture sensor just in case something like this should ever happen to you!!

Re: [Guide]Perfect application of screen protectors with pics.

Nice write up, but I did notice that some of the "sticky coating" on the back of the protector wore off a bit from the soap, I assume. (it's the original protector I got last year for the TP1)

Re: [Guide]Perfect application of screen protectors with pics.

I agree with the OP to perform the screen application in the bathroom because its easy to wipe everything down to create a dust free environment. How would you prevent the soapy solution from seeping into the edges of the digitizer where it may corrode the contacts? I usually use a clearn microfiber lens cloth and clear tape to remove dust from the adhesive side of protector.
