Please take time to read ALL the instructions once or twice beforehand. Set aside 30-45 minutes for the installation. The film requires time to cure and set after installation. We would suggest doing it at the night so that the device can be left off unused for at least 12 hours.
Identify a warm, well lit and dust-free location away from any direct wind and sunlight for installation. Any dust, debris or lint particles found near the installation area can get under the film during installation and spoil the whole process.
Shown below is an installation of back shield on a cell phone. The same instructions apply to the screen and all the other areas and for all other devices including Tablets and Laptops.
Application Solution :
Make a soap solution by mixing thoroughly 1-2 drops of mild liquid soap (baby shampoo recommended) and around 300 ml (10 Oz) of water in a shallow dish. Avoid using any detergents or washing soaps. For larger shields (Tablets or Laptops) work up a larger volume in the same water/shampoo ratio.
Switch Off your device and remove the batteries if they are removable. For devices where the battery is not removable, switching off is sufficient. Wash your hands and clean the device's surface thoroughly of all the dirt and facial oils with a lint-free cloth. You can wet the cloth slightly before cleaning.
Identify where each portion of the shield goes on the device. Wet all your fingers with the soap solution and starting from a corner, slowly and carefully remove one of the shields without stretching it. Tip: Keep your fingers wet whenever handling the shield to avoid fingerprints.
Dip the removed piece into the soap solution completely, take it out and remove all the excess solution by sliding your fingers along the shield. Fingerprints on the sticky side, if any, can be washed out during this step. Make sure every part of the sticky side is wet so that the shield doesn't fold up or stick to itself. Do not let the shield stick to dust or anything that is not wet.
With the sticky side facing down, place the shield on your device as closely aligned as possible by equally spacing out any cut-outs in the shield around the ports (holes) on the device. Glide it into the correct position with minor adjustments using your fingers if required.
If you are unsatisfied with the alignment of a particular piece, now is the time to remove it slowly and start back from step 3. Removing the film after the sticky side has dried may stretch or deform it. Once satisfied with the alignment, use your fingers first and then a credit card or anything similar to remove the excess solution under the film away from the center and towards the edges of the film.
Absorb the excess solution using the lint-free cloth whenever required. If the shield is moving from its perfectly aligned position, slide it back into place and let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then gently start squeezing again. After squeezing out the excess solution, start pressing down all the side flaps with enough pressure so that they stick down on the device.
Once all the portions are installed, keep your device SWITCHED OFF for a period of 12-24 hrs to let the film set and all the left over moisture to dry out.
After a period of 12-24 hrs, the shield will dry out and you can start using your device.
Immediately after the installation, you may see micro-bubbles under your screen and the device might look hazy.Don't panic over the wet appearance of the shield as this is perfectly normal. As the shield starts to set onto your device, it will start to clear up. The appearance will improve remarkably over the 12-24 Hrs period with the moisture drying out. Allow up to 2 to 3 days for the microbubbles to completely disappear. However, larger bubbles may take a bit longer to clear up.
