    So i applied the spigen glas.tr a couple days ago and got a pretty good install no airbubbles or lent or anything but it is misaligned by the slightest bit and its getting to the point where i am tired of looking at the misalignment.

    if i am super careful with taking it of should it go back on just as easy? i also have the spigen aluminum home button on there and in order to get it aligned with the screenprotector it is not in center with the actual home button so this is my other pet peeve with the screen protector being misaligned. im really hoping i can just try to re align it i dont want to have to wait two weeks for a new one to ship and pay another $18 :(

    You actually can take it off and put it back on. It will stick. The only problem is you will probably experience touch sensitivity issues.

    Yes you can remove it and re apply it. You shouldn't experience any touch sensitivity issues but you may or may not have 1-2 tiny spots that won't fully adhere that look like tiny air bubbles but I think you can work those out over time. The home button sticker is a bear to remove though.

    You can re-apply the GlasTr. You just have to be careful not to remove or damage the adhesive underneath. I have re-applied mine several times and each time I took it off, I went over the adhesive side with a sheet lint roller to remove any dust that may have attached itself.

    It is possible with no sacrifice of the touch sensitivity.

    I would only recommend this if you are very careful and don't install it in a dusty :D.

    I have reapplied my glass screen protector twice without any negative effects.

    it's luck of the draw. the second time may leave you with air bubbles, or touch sensitivity issues.

    you might luck out and get a good re-apply.

    ok im getting mixed answers so i think i am going to just go for it and if worse comes to worse order a new glas.tr and wait a whole nother two weeks if not longer to try and apply it again:mad:

    whats the best way to remove without damaging. ill steam up my bathroom to ensure no lent and once i take it off im thinking of putting tape on both edges to help me line it up perfect.

    I'm really curious. I've been wanting to do this as well. Getting sick of having that thick glass on there.

    It's the glass.tR here as well and I'm wondering where to put it after I've taken it off ? In a plastic bag? For the optimal results .

    And the second thing is , how is the iPhone 5 stock screen holding up against scratches ? Is there any chance I get ANY scratches (doesn't matter if they're uber small) when I'm having my phone in the SurfacePad with flap closed and never in my pocket but in the jacketpocket?

    Just use scotch tape to the screen and to the sticky side of the protector. it will take care of any small lint or dust. I removed mine three times for perfect alignment and I have no issues.

    I have a small adhesive like a air bubble on the bottom left corner, is there anyway to smooth it out? I try pressing on it but it comes back
