Ultra (UV-Gel)

  • Step #2:
    Peel one of the Speaker Stickers from its film and insert it in the lower slot at the top of the application tray. This prevents adhesive gel from entering your device’s speaker.
  • Step #3:
    Place the application tray over your device.
  • Step #4:
    Press down on the Speaker Protecting Tab so it adheres to your device’s speaker.
  • Step #5:
    Find a flat surface for the installation. Use the level (the bubble will be centered when level) to verify the surface is completely flat. Clean your device’s screen before proceeding.
  • Step #6:
    Insert the plastic pin in the designated slot at the top of the tray, above the Speaker Protecting Tab.
  • Step #7:
    The application tray will be pre-installed with absorption pads to soak up any excess adhesive. Please make sure they are securely installed on either side of the tray. Clean your device’s screen once more.
  • Step #8:
    Make sure your device’s screen is still dust-free. Then remove the red cap of the Adhesive Tube and hold it directly over the MIDDLE of the device, with the open end facing downwards. The adhesive will NOT seep out at this point.
  • Step #9:
    Unscrew the other end of the tube to release the adhesive. Make sure the adhesive is positioned above the middle of the device.
  • Step #10:
    Remove the mask film from the screen protector, and place the bottom edge of the protector on the phone, allowing the top edge to rest on the plastic pin.
  • Step #11:
    Slowly pull the pin from Step 6, so the protector lowers and gradually touches the adhesive. Once the screen protector makes contact with the adhesive, it will start to spread. At this point, quickly finish pulling the pin out.
  • Step #12:
    Place the metal cylinder on the Fingerprint Scanner. This is located 3/4” from the bottom of the device. Allow the adhesive to spread automatically. This could take 2-3 minutes. DO NOT PRESS ON THE SCREEN PROTECTOR OR THE CYLINDER.
  • Step #13:
    Plug in the UV Light, prop its legs outwards, and suspend it over the phone for 15 seconds on each section (top, middle, and bottom.)
  • Step #14:
    Remove the cylinder from your device, and use the UV Light to cure the area of the screen that had the cylinder on top of it for 30 additional seconds.
  • Step #15:
    Repeat the process from Step 13, for intervals of 60 seconds each.
  • Step #16:
    If you registered your fingerprint before applying this screen protector, the fingerprint on file with your phone may no longer work. We recommend re-scanning each finger TWICE to ensure optimal accuracy.

Ultra V2 (UV-Gel)

  • Step #1:
    Turn off your device, and apply the leveling pad on the back of the phone. This will keep the phone level during installation.
  • Step #2:
    Place the application tray on your phone, with the open cut on the TOP of the phone. Take great care to ensure that the phone is fully inserted into the application tray. You will see four pins on the inside of the tray – they need to be in direct contact with the phone screen.
  • Step #3:
    Peel one of the speaker stickers from its film, and place it over the device speaker, through the open cut mentioned in Step 2. This prevents adhesive from entering your device’s speaker during the installation.
  • Step #4:
    Press firmly so that the tab adheres to your speaker.
  • Step #5:
    Find a flat surface for the installation process. Since liquid glue is going to be used, it is important that the surface is completely level. You can use the bubble level in the packaging (the bubble will be centered when level) to make sure your surface is flat.
  • Clean your device’s screen before proceeding.
  • Step #6:
    Insert the plastic pin in the slot at the BOTTOM of the tray, opposite of the speaker protecting tab.
  • Step #7:
    The application tray will come pre-installed with absorption pads to soak up any excess adhesive. Please make sure they are securely installed on both sides of the tray.
  • Step #8:
    Remove the red cap of the adhesive tube, and hold it directly over the middle of the device, with the open end facing downwards.
  • Step #9:
    Unscrew the other end of the tube to release the adhesive. Make sure the adhesive is being poured directly onto the middle of the device. You can tilt the phone in any direction to make sure the adhesive is directly in the middle.
  • Step #10:
    Remove the mask film from the screen protector, and place the top edge of the screen protector on the phone, and the bottom edge on the plastic Pin. It is EXTREMELY important that the screen protector be within ALL FOUR PINS of the application tray.
  • Step #11:
    Slowly pull the Pin from Step 5, so the protector lowers and gradually touches the adhesive. Once the screen protector makes contact with the adhesive, it will begin to spread on its own. At this point, quickly finish pulling the pin out.
  • Step #12:
    Place the metal cylinder on the fingerprint scanner. This is located nearly an inch from the bottom of your device. Allow the adhesive to spread automatically, and this can take up to 2-3 minutes, and in some instances, even longer, but during this process, DO NOT TOUCH the screen protector, or the cylinder. The adhesive WILL spread by itself.
  • Step #13:
    Plug in the UV Light, and prop its legs outward, and suspend it over the phone for 15 seconds on the top, middle, and bottom sections.
  • Step #14:
    Remove the cylinder from your device, and use the UV light to cure the area where the cylinder was for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Step #15:
    Repeat the curing process from step 13 for intervals of 60 seconds on the top, 60 seconds on the middle, and 60 seconds on the bottom.
  • At this point, you can remove your phone from the application guide, and remove the speaker protective tab.
  • Step #16:
    If you registered your fingerprint before applying this screen protector, the fingerprint on file may no longer work. We recommend re-scanning each fingerprint TWICE to ensure optimal accuracy.

Installation Tips 

Use our tips below to help achieve the best results during installation . . .
  1. Each screen protector consists of 3 layers of film. The front and back film layers are protective, mask films (where the Step 1 and Step 2 stickers are affixed) and are used for packaging/shipping purposes ONLY. The actual screen protector for your device is the film in the middle. Please use the stickers like "handles" to assist you in in grasping and removing the mask film layers. DO NOT remove the actual stickers themselves. Discard the 2 outer protective film layers after installation.
  2. Installation should always be done with your device turned off and in a well-lit, dust-free, environment. Consider doing your installation in the bathroom after a hot shower. The humidity will keep dust particles to a minimum and allow for optimal installation conditions.
  3. The included dust removal stickers can be used to remove dust from the screen and the adhesive side of the screen protector. To use, simply touch the adhesive side of the sticker onto the dust and, as you remove the sticker, the dust will also be removed.
  4. And remember … don’t stress out over the installation process! If you have any difficulty, or damage the product during installation, we have you covered under our Lifetime Guarantee. Contact us and we will send you a free replacement so you can “give it another go”!
