How to easily remove screen protector!

Yes, I'm a proponent of screen protectors. Why spend hundreds of dollars on a device and then risk damaging one of the primary ways you'll interact with it?

I've had multiple devices and have always used screen protectors. The biggest pain is trying to remove the protector when it's time to replace it. I've tried tape, slipping a thin piece of plastic or cardboard under the protector, etc. The tape sometimes takes forever and gets the screen protector gummy. Thin pieces of cardboard or plastic tend to bend upon meeting resistance.

I was going through the process today and trying various options without success. I stopped and was looking through a drawer and trying to find something else that would work well. Then I saw it and immediately knew I found the answer!



The cable tie worked perfectly! It easily slid under the protector and allowed me to lift it right up. I will never dread replacing a screen protector again.

I just use a combination of my nail and one of those squeegee cards that come with my old Fellowes screen protectors.

Wow. I've never had any problem with tape. Maybe your protectors are especally sticky on the bottom? What brand do you use?

I think I'm using boxwave... and have no complaints. They're excellent quality.

I just stick new ones over the top of the originals. You have to press harder and harder, but by the time you reach a 1/4" the whole lot just peels off...

Does that help with glare reduction? Perhaps a shock absorber for when you drop it screen-down?

Glare reduction? Oh yeah. Helps with brightness too. No need for hacks to reduce screen brightness, just add another 2 or 3 screen protectors...

Shock absorption almost works, you've either got to carefully drop your handheld so it always lands screen down OR add equal layers of screen protectors on the back. Two problems with that: 1) as T5 & TX etc have the speaker on the back, it mutes sound; 2) it looks naff.

Ever tried a small card? Fellowes bundles a "squeegee card" with their screen protectors, and it makes putting them on a lot easier, that is, if you can get it aligned in the first place.

I do use an application card but I always seem to get air bubles trapped underneath the protector! :frown:
