Removing invisible shield from iPod: Easy?

July 25th, 2006

A few weeks back, I got an invisible shield for my iPod’s screen. I was so satisfied with it that I decided to go for a full body shield for my iPod.

Now that my all new full body shield is here, just how easy will it be to remove the old screen shield so that I can put on the new one? According to the FAQ on ShieldZone’s website,

Q: How do I remove the invisibleSHIELD if I need to?
A: Removing the invisibleSHIELD from your electronic device is easier than it may seem. It is much like peeling off a sticker. You will want to start at one corner and slowly peel back small pieces at a time until the invisibleSHIELD has completely been removed from off of your device.

Is a material as tough as the invisible shield (which was originally designed to protect the edges of military helicopter blades) as easy to remove as ShieldZone claims? Let’s find out!

Conclusion: The invisible shield is strong enough that it won’t come off accidentally but if you need to take it off for any reason, that won’t be a problem! In fact ShieldZone recommends that you remove your shields if you have to send off your device for repairs and they will send you a brand new shield free of charge to replace it!

    […] After removing the invisible shield screen protector on my iPod, I applied the full body shield which covers just under 100% of the iPod’s surface. Once again, I’ve been very impressed with the results! I am most pleased at the efficiency of the back cover shield in preventing fingerprint stains. If you’ve always hated the way the back metal casing of your iPod, the invisible shield will definitely put an end to this while at the same time protecting it from scratches in a way that no iPod case will do.

    As with many other people, I am very hesitant on applying the invisibleSHIELD to my brand new ipod for frear that the solution may harm the ipod or that there may be sticky residues left when taking it off. When you removed the invisibleSHIELD, did you notice any residue, or stickiness? or was it like BRAND NEW?

    Rob, the screen on my iPod looked exactly like it did before I applied the invisible shield. It left no sticky residues. The only sort of residues you may get is if you somehow manage to get some dirt in the corners/edges of the shield, but even then it’s really easy to get rid of, just by wiping it off with your fingers.

    Hope this helps.
