Application, Drying Time, & Removal

PDF Version


  1. Clean the Display
    All debris must be completely removed from the surface and surrounding edge. Once clean, generously coat with Application Solution and leave it wet.

  2. Spray and Peel
    To avoid fingerprints, spray fingers with solution before peeling the shield from the liner like a sticker. Spray both sides of the shield with solution and place it on the display.

  3. Position on Display
    Gently slide the shield until centered, leaving an even gap between the shield edges and the display border (about 1/32" all around).

  4. Squeegee to Secure Shield
    Remove excess solution and bubbles with slow, overlapping strokes. Repeat at least 2-3 times, increasing pressure with each pass.

  5. Absorb Excess Moisture
    Wrap squeegee in cloth and firmly "bump" edges to seal the shield's adhesive. Wipe away any remaining solution.


Fill a 32 ounce spray bottle with filtered water (not tap) and add 2 small drops of JOHNSON’S® Baby Shampoo.  Shake gently to mix.

For installation during extreme weather, please see guidelines below.

curing time

During the first day or two, you may notice a slight haze or perhaps some small bubbles remaining.  This is temporary and will disappear as the adhesive dries and has bonded secured to the protected surface.  Visibility should not be impaired. 

Outdoor Dry Time: 1-3 days
Indoor Dry Time:  3-5 days


Wait at least 5 days after application before cleaning.  This allows the shield to create a secure bond with the protected surface.   

Use soft, non-abrasive cloths and gentle cleaners such as ammonia-free Windex® only.  Avoid industrial strength chemicals such as acetone and alcohol.  

REMOVAL + Replacement

First, thoroughly clean the exposed display surface and surrounding edge to minimize debris during replacement.  Use the provided Application Tool to apply pressure at a corner edge to break the adhesive bond.  Once a corner is lifted, the shield can be peeled away by hand, residue-free.


Once shields are finished curing, they’ll be unaffected by extreme temperatures. However, the initial install requires a clean surface and plenty of application solution. Harsh weather conditions can make installation a challenge, so we recommend the following:

Rain, Snow, and Wind
Do not install during during precipitation or windy conditions. Strong winds tend to stir up excess debris and precipitation can cause debris to runoff the surrounding area and get stuck behind the shield.

Extreme Cold
Do not install if there’s a chance of freezing temperatures (below 32F) within one week of installation. Application Solution may freeze and form crystals before the shield has a chance to finish curing.

Extreme Heat
Do not install if the temperature of the protected surface exceeds 120F or is too hot to touch. On very hot days, avoid installing on the side that will be in direct sunlight at the time of installation.
