    So I ordered the PowerSupport front and back film set. Came out to 31 bucks with shipping. I'm not completely disappointed with it, but I want to try other protectors to see how they compare.

    Is it possible to preserve the screen protector? Like if I we're to take it off and somehow find a way to keep it on something else (I already threw away the backing it came on :() would it still be usable in the future if I wanted to go back to it? I just can't see throwing away 31 dollars.

    Maybe other people have tried this before so any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I used press-n-seal plastic wrap to "preserve" an iPad screen protector. It worked great, I was able to reinstall the film later with no issues.

    You mean the plastic wrap that you use on casserole bowls and stuff and it can water seal it?

    AKA, this stuff?

    Excellent! Looks like I'm going to the grocery store tomorrow and buying some. :)

    Thanks again!

    I would think that wax paper might be a little better as far as not sticking, but the cellophane wrap would likely work pretty well.

    X2 :D Works like a charm. Wax paper does work for the SGP Carbon Skin Guard though.

    iPad screen glare eliminator...

    I also use Glad press n seal wrap directly on my iPad screen to eliminate glare from sunlight. It is see through enough to read and work with it on my screen and also allows me to type and use the touch screen through it. And it comes right off wren I don't need it.

    I'm not sure of a perfect way to preserve them.... I think if you take it off, you're about done for.

    I usually cover the sticky side with scotch tape vertically. Usually takes about 5 strips. It's always worked for me. By the way they were also PS screen protectors. Hope it helps!
