How to apply the Hero 5 screen protectors?

The "instructions" included in the box are useless. Anyone have any pointers?

Re: How to apply the Hero 5 screen protectors?

@orlandotragic

I haven't used them but I assume they are like any phone screen protector.  You will want to apply the screen protector in a lint free room.  The bathroom is usually a good place for this. Wash your hands first to get any grease or oil off your fingers.  Other than that, it's usually just get it wet, apply and press from center outward to remove any bubbles.  Leave the screen protector to dry overnight, 8-12 hours is usually best, before touching the screen.

 

Hope that helps,
