How to Take off a Screen Protector & Save It for Later


Screen protectors are meant to provide a shield between the an electronic device's screen and the sharp edges of the outside world. Screen protectors normally stay on the screen, but at times the user may need to remove and store them for later use. For example, if they are exchanging the device for a problem, and want to use the protector on the new replacement. With a little care, the screen protector can be saved.

Things You'll Need

  • Clear mailing tape
  • Envelope
  • Tear off a piece of clear mailing tape. Make the piece of tape slightly longer than the screen protector.

  • Lay the tape down on a flat surface, sticky side up. Depending on the width of the screen protector, you may need to use multiple pieces of tape. It's OK if the edges of the tape overlap.

  • Remove the screen protector by gently lifting the corner with a fingernail. If it won't come off, stick a small piece of tape on the corner and lift gently.

  • Peel back the screen protector slowly. If it bends too sharply, it may have a crease in the material.

  • Lay the screen protector down on the pieces of tape, sticky side down.

  • Fold the edges of the tape over the edges of the screen protector.

  • Drop the screen protector into an envelope for storage.

Tips & Warnings

  • The tape will prevent specks of dust and hair from sticking to the screen protector.
  • Do not try to lift the screen protector with a hard object such as needle or tweezers. You may scratch the screen underneath.
