Hi,

I am getting trackpad marks on my MBP 13" 2019 and have the radtech keyboard cover that only covers the keyboard.

I hear larger size screen cover can cause issues with closing the laptop.

I had permanent trackpad marks on my 2015 Macbook.

What microfiber cloth can I get that will allow safety for the screen as well as ability to close the laptop properly.

I had the same problem and replaced the Radtech cloth with a sheet of standard copier paper. That has worked nicely for two years now.

This sounds great. I will try it and return my radtech. I am not sure why the trackpad left permanent marks due to the edges.
[doublepost=1562597160][/doublepost]Hi Yatbob, which macbook do you have? It seems people have problems closing the laptops in newest macbook pro and that might explain why radtech only provides keyboard cover. shaggymax also mentioned this.

I belive Radtech switched to a smaller cloth, only covering the keyboard, with the 2016 model (which I have).

You can always use a large lens/glasses cleaning cloth. Cheap and available in bulk from amazon/ebay you name it.

Thanks. i might return the overpriced Radtech. Especially since it doesn't cover the trackpad for some reason. I will invest in another stack of dual use laser paper.
