Optimal Installation Tips:
- Use a lint-free cloth that can absorb water/liquid quickly and well, so that when you squeeze out the air bubbles and spray, you can wipe it up quickly.
- Don’t be afraid to use a bit of pressure with the rubber squeegee to get the bubbles out, but not too much so that you tear the plastic. Pretty much, if you find that the bubbles aren’t coming out, then apply some more pressure.
- Careful about the pieces sticking to themselves – this can happen easily with the larger pieces. Make sure to spray the entire surface of the pieces and both sides.
- Push out all the bubbles before you leave it to dry. If the bubbles aren’t coming out, then you want to consider applying more of the spray.
- It’s important to let it dry properly. Don’t even think about touching your laptop/device for at least 12 hours.
I wish there were a piece of IS for the laptop above the keyboard, but I assume the thinking was that is not an area that would be subject to as much wear.
As much as possible, I like to see conservation in products, particularly tech products that use so much plastic and other valuable raw materials. I would have preferred that Zagg included much less of the installation spray or better yet, recommended some household product that can have been used as a lubricant, especially considering they admit that the SHIELDSpray is mostly water.
I really like how my laptop looks now – it has this glossy, reflective finish to it that protects it as well. We’ll see how it works out in a few weeks, and a few months and then in a year plus. Meantime, if you care anything about your gadget’s exterior and/or screen, I can recommend InvisibleSHIELD products completely.
