How to install XtremeGuard Screen Protector
Items needed for best results:
- Lint Free Cloth (Microfiber)
- Bowl or container for the soap/water solution
NOTE: IT WILL TAKE THE PROTECTOR 1-2 DAYS FOR HAZINESS AND ANY BUBBLES FROM THE INSTALL TO GO AWAY. DO NOT REMOVE THE PROTECTOR DURING THIS PERIOD.
STEP 1: Remove battery from device if possible. If you have a device that does not have a removable battery (iPhone/iPod) turn off the device. Add a large drop of liquid soap to approximately one cup of water and stir. Water will be used to wet and then position the protector(s). Clean surfaces to be covered.
STEP 2: Wash your hands and then soak all of your fingers in the soapy water solution so you do not leave fingerprints. With wet fingers, peel off the backing from the guard, then re-dip your fingers in the solution and completely wet the protector.
STEP 3: Apply and align the guard to your device; softly squeegee out any extra water and use a cloth to soak up excess moisture if necessary. ** Important Note: As you squeegee out the water the skin will begin to adhere to the phone and will no longer move freely. If the skin is not aligned correctly and has become too sticky to readjust, remove it and start over.
For best results, re-apply coverings as few times as possible.
** Important Note:** When applying a covering over a rounded surface, you will have to let the over-hanging portion of the protector air dry until proper adhesion can occur. Start by getting the protector correctly positioned on the device. Once the positioning is acceptable, wait while the overhanging edges dry. Impatiently trying to force the edges down prematurely can cause the protector to move out of alignment. Patience is a key factor when covering rounded surfaces. Feel free to set the device down for a few minutes and come back to it later. This entire process could take up to 45 minutes. **
CAUTION: Even though drying is generally sufficient after only 8 hours, as a precaution, allow the device a full 24 hours of dry time before replacing the battery and powering on.
