    I just got a Moshi Palmguard for my Macbook. I first washed the surface with water, and then I peeled the palmguard off the cardboard. I stuck it on, but it doesn't seem to stick. And it doesn't seem to have a backing to pull off. It looks like an adhesive.

    Can anyone tell me how to install this, based on their own experience? The instructions included are the same as the following link: http://www.moshimonde.com/palmguard.htm
    and yet I can't make sense out of step #2. It just isn't sticking.

    When I did mine a few months ago, there was a backing to peel off. Look closer.

    Are you sure? I just looked and tried picking at the backing, but it feels like it SHOULD be sticky and isn't.

    Also, did you get a special ruler with it?

    Yes, in MY case, there was definitely a backing. No water involved.
    I did get a Moshi ruler, but I didn't use it at all.

    Well, then I may have gotten a defective product; I don't know.

    Was it really hard to remove the backing?

    I've picked at it really hard with my fingernail, and yet can't seem to remove anything. I seem to be damaging it, actually, trying to remove a layer that doesn't exist. I'll have to ask my mom, with her fingernails, to help (the palmguard was part of a 18th birthday present, suggested based on the experiences of you guys here).

    I'm wondering if mine just isn't sticky. I'll have to see.

    EDIT: My mom, with her amazing fingernails, was able to remove the backing. She even lined it up perfectly for me. Everything work outstanding now! :)
