How to Install Zagg Invisible Shield Glass Screen Protector
Installing these screen protectors like the Zagg Invisible Shield Glass can be tricky. If I’m honest, they used to give me a little anxiety. The old versions, before the Invisible Shield Glass was introduced, were extremely difficult to install on your phone. I’d often mess it up by either not aligning correctly, persistent air bubbles, or I’d notice a spec of dust later that would drive me crazy every time I looked at my screen. (Yes, I’m a perfectionist so the slightest fault in my screen protector really bugs me). So I’ve put together a step-by-step tutorial on how to install your Zagg Invisible Shield Glass screen protector on your iPhone including a video tutorial below!
How to order your replacement
After a few months of wear-and-tear, more nicks around the edges and even a small crack or two forming, I gave in and ordered a replacement. Just a note, this is the second replacement I’ve ordered within the year. So unless you’re super gentle with your phone you’ll mostly likely want to replace your glass screen protector at least once a year especially if you’re constantly pulling it in and out of a case. Luckily with the lifetime warranty you’ll only have to pay for shipping (which is $5.99 in the United States) instead of purchasing a new one.
In order to receive a replacement you need to have already registered your product on Zagg’s website (so do this first if you’ve just purchased yours!). Once you login you can navigate to the “Warranty replacement” link on your account dashboard to start the process of ordering a replacement. Below is a screenshot of what you’ll see after login.
What’s included in the box
Here’s a look at the unopened packaging for Zagg’s Invisible Shield Glass HD Clarity Screen Protection for Apple iPhone 6/6s. What’s included in the box:
- Instructions on how to register your product’s warranty (mine was already registered, that’s how I received this product replacement so no need to re-register)
- Wet wipe
- Microfiber cleaning cloth
- Invisible Shield Glass screen protector
I created a short step-by-step video tutorial of how to install the Zagg Invisible Shield Glass screen protector. I know when it comes to processes like this it always helps me to have a visual walkthrough so I get it right the first time.
Step 1: Remove old screen protector
If you’re replacing an old screen protector like I am, remove this first.
Step 2: Wipe clean with wet wipe
Open the included wet wipe and use it to clean your phone’s screen. You want your screen to be as clean as possible before applying your new Invisible Shield glass screen protector.
Step 3: Wipe dry with cloth
This is a very important step for those of you perfectionists (like me). After using the wet wipe to clean your screen use the microfiber cloth to dry. Make sure there are no fingerprints or dust on your screen before moving on.
Step 4: Remove side 1 of protective film
Side one of the film is labeled, use the tab to remove. Now that the glass is exposed be careful not to touch the glass or get anything on it.
Step 5: Line up carefully (take your time)
This is the second most difficult part of the process and takes me the longest. Align the glass carefully over your phone. Use the home button and the speaker to help with alignment. Take all the time you need to get this right.
Step 6: Press down in the center of the screen
Once you have the glass aligned correctly press down in the center of the screen and watch as the glass installs itself.
Step 7: Remove protective film
Step 8: Press down on any remaining bubbles
Use the cloth to smooth out any remaining bubbles, this make take an extra minute or two.
And that’s it, you’re done
Oh so shiny, it looks brand new all over again.
