Thanks for this guide - nice to see you are using my device the DHD in the example too

One point though in the past I have had good success using a soapy water technique that lets you reposition the protector till you feel its perfect - then you squeegy out the surplus water and when it dries it stays perfectly in position.

I say in the past because i used the above technique with my current DHD protector and its a flawed technique as there is a small gap around the edge of the DHD and soapy water entered the device and got between the screen and the display. I actually thought the device was ruined but over the course of the next 2 weeks it gradually dried and left no trace of the disaster. However I wouldnt do it that way again.

The adhesive tape part is pretty smart.

Good guide.

Great techniques, thanks. I would have never thought of using a piece of tape to remove dust particles. Can't wait to put a new protector on now!

Mad props. I always manage some what fair when i use a method of peeling back the top end, placing it in position, peel back the protection layer slightly, and using a credit card covered with a cleaning cloth to lay the screen protector down by sliding down and peeling back from underneath. Like a vinyl car window sticker. This sounds much better. When I need a new one I'm using this method. Bookmarked and Thanks
