Removing Tags From Screen Protectors???

I have bought several screen protectors for my Ipad. Each has a silly "sticky" tag on each side of the screen protector. It says to remove them. Well I do and they do not come off cleanly. There is a noticeable residue from them on the screen protector and it looks terrible.

Can anyone recommend either how to remove these tags cleanly or a good screen protector without these tags?

You're probably trying to remove the tag from the cellophane backing to the shield. Look closely and see if there are two sheets left. Sometimes there are three pieces with the shield sandwitched between.

Thanks for the reply.

I don't think so.

Can you recommend a screen protector such as the one you mentioned?

Use a tiny bit of WD40 on a very soft lint free cloth. Rub gently until the residue is gone.

This works for any left over sticky adhesive residue.

I had the same issue with my iphone 4, not my iPad. I tried to take the screen protector off and it left sticky residue on the sides of the screen. I'm not sure if this is because I kept the it on there too long or if it was just a cheap screen protector. It was one I got from Verizon when I originally picked up my iphone.

As for a recommendation I would say to check out the Shell Shock: G-Class from Cellairis. It takes my vote for the best iphone screen protector i've had so far. It's a case that covers the entire body and screen instead of using one of the clear covers that left residue last time.
