Screen Protector Installation Guide

Step 1. Make sure there are no fans blowing in the room and let any dust settle from people movement for five minutes before starting the project.

Step 2. Begin preparing your iPad screen surface using a lint free wipe and solution kit similar to this: Clean and Polish Kit

Step 3. Obtain a ruler, credit card, Post-It note pad, or other stiff, small, and straight edged object to assist in applying the protective film.

Step 4. Start applying the protective film at the home button end of the iPad and gently work from that bottom upwards. DO NOT peel the protective film from the sheet it comes shipped on until it's near the edge of the surface of the glass. That keeps any contaminants from statically clinging to the screen protector.

Step 5. Work any bubbles from the center to the edge using your sourced straight edged object.

Step 6. Take care not to create any fingerprints on the edge of the protective film by not touching that surface edge.

Rating: 1/5 the worst case I've ever get my hands on May 8, 2013 The case looks good on the picture but in real life it does not serve the purpose. The slot for 30 pin ipad connector is not wide enough to fit camera kit adapter. The case is not stable. It flips when put in vertical position (see the video). The inside of the case gets dirty and unpleasant to touch after first use, it reminds of a piece of a sand paper. Low quality leather. When in closed position , the iPad does not turn off which is proof of bad design. The phone slot cut will not fit most of 3.5mm connectors. After "playing around" a bit with this case my wife and i decided to apply for RMA . it's now on the way back to OWC

Response from MacSales.com, Marketing May 9, 2013 Your Newer Technology The Pad Protector is made from fine quality genuine leather. The leather adjusts to both the device and individual habits of the user. If the overall usage and fit initially seems stiff, please allow a few days of use for the leather to adjust for improved functionality. Leather will stretch and tighten depending on the weather, temperature, humidity, and it does have a memory. If you find that your particular case does not stand up in a particular position, fold it backwards a few times on each of the fold lines in order to break-in the leather. This action may need to be repeated until the leather has been successfully trained. Additionally, leather will soften and improve over time, developing a rich patina that makes your The Pad Protector look and feel better the longer you use it.
