The 7 Frustrating Steps Of Putting On A Plastic Screen Protector

This isn't an advertisement and we weren't paid to write it. We have an ArmorGlas screen protector and we think it's pretty cool.

Did you get a shiny new iPad or iPhone for Christmas? You're probably going to want to throw a screen protector on it before you climb into the cockpit. But before you go out and buy the plastic peel-and-stick kind, let us save you a few steps of frustration...

1) Peel

You're excited. Then you try to peel the protective film off. Reserve the next 10 minutes for this process.


2) Wet the screen protector

You wet the screen protector, and everything else in a 7 foot radius.


3) Bubbles

And more bubbles. And more. Bubbles.


4) Credit card

You feverishly chase the bubbles across the screen with a credit card. As your frustration mounts, you remind yourself not to snap your credit card in half.


5) The plastic doesn't line up

After all your efforts, you sit back, only to realize the plastic doesn't line up over your home button.


6) Peeling edges

After about a month, your hard work starts to literally come unglued, as the edges of your screen protector peel up.


7) You get ArmorGlas

You give up, rip the old protector off, and get an ArmorGlas anti-glare screen protector. You set the tempered glass protector on your screen, swipe your finger up, and just like that, you're done.

Save yourself the frustration. Check out MyGoFlight's ArmorGlas anti-glare, tempered glass screen protectors, and keep your brand new iPhone or iPad from glaring and scratching the next time you fly. We have one on our iPad, and we love it.
