    When I was in London underground today, that was busy time and I was last on board, my iPad was put in a business leather case, when the door close, my brief case was stuck by the doors when the door is closing, then I have to force the door open a bit and get my brief case out.

    I don't know how is the ipad's resistant to such a pressure, and how may I know my iPad is ok or not? It's functional normally, but I noticed some strip on the screen- but, I had zagg's protector film on it, so I'm not sure the strip are caused by the door stuck pressure or the effect of the film?

    Could anyone have some suggestions?

    Thanks a lot!

    Not sure what presure the iPad can take. If you do have a protector on it I personally would take it off and see if it has damaged the screen itself.

    Ouch those bloody doors!

    Should think you would get away with it to be honest. If they can't cut your arm off they shouldn't damage a cased iPad.
    Just try watching some videos to check for pixel damage and if you're feeling brave pull off the protector film. Never needed one on mine and it's been getting a hell of a lot of usage.

    Hope you've been lucky :)

    Thanks for reply, the problem is- the zagg protector is quite difficult to apply on the screen, so I really don't want to take it off if there is another way of telling how ti identify the strips.

    To be sure of the condition I don't see anyway around not removing the protector.

    Give the Zagg a couple days. It might self-heal. My husband semi-stepped on my iPad and made a ridge and about 6 big bubbles on mine while we were on vacation. I rubbed the bubbles as much as I could, thinking I'd have to replace the Zagg once I got home since two bubbles wouldn't go away. Two days later, the Zagg shows no indication that anything happened to it.

    I'm sure it's fine, and it's just the screen protector.
