Default Glass screen protector

The only screen protector I will use from now on, is Body Guardz!

I'm on the super-cheap end of the spectrum. I take 9x12 self laminating sheets and cut them to size using a template I made myself. I do have to cut out a small square for the home button and top front speaker. I wouldn't count on it for more than minor scratch protection of course and generally I replace it weekly. They go on and come off easily and they're cheap.

Does that actually work? That sounds crazy... I mean, all the power to you if it does work, but Jeez.
I have been, and always shall be, your friend.

It's not crazy, just cheap! The sheets peel off easily and leave minimal residue, easily wiped off with a bit of fabric. I wouldn't count on it to do more than protect from everyday scratches, which is the most I have had to deal with. I do see where the sheet has taken scratches, which indicates it was doing something toward protecting the screen. Of course the sheet is more easily scratched to begin with. But, it's some protection, even if only a little, and enough for my purposes.
