Installation Instructions for Ultra Clear, Matte Finish, and Xtreme skinz

Attention!

Our Ultra Clear and Xtreme skins have a protective layer on top of the skin which must be removed during or after installation. Separate the corner of the protective layer from the skin now using your fingernail. Skin will be installed on flat areas first with the protective layer intact, then completely remove the protective layer to apply the film to any curved surfaces after step 5. See the installation video above for a demonstration of removing the protective layer.

1.  Clean your hands and your device. Power off your device and remove the battery if possible.

2.  To prevent fingerprints on your PhantomSkinz, wet your fingertips with the application solution before touching the adhesive side of the film.

3.  Remove your PhantomSkinz from the backing paper. Apply application solution to the adhesive side of the film, using enough to thoroughly coat the adhesive.

4.  Lay your PhantomSkinz on your device adhesive side down, making sure that cutouts for buttons and openings are evenly spaced and centered. 

Tip: Take care not to press down on the top of the film with your fingers. Doing so will “set” the adhesive, trapping air.

5.  Wrap a common credit card with the included microfiber cloth and use it to push bubbles from the center of the film towards the edges and away from any openings or uncovered ports. If any air bubbles remain, lift the film, rewet, and try again.

6.  For full body skinz, press down any corners and hold for 10 seconds. Make sure there is no “bunching” in the corners and the film lays completely flush with your device.

Tip: Be gentle with your device for the next 24 hours while the solution dries and the film cures. Any micro bubbles or imperfections should disappear within 72 hours.

4. We recommend using a hair dryer or heat from a lamp to warm the film prior to adhering the corners and sides. This allows the film to conform to the device more easily.

 

Tip: Tabs and side strips should be stretched to meet the adjoining piece to provide the best look/feel and prevent peeling.
