Prevent screen protector from peeling off

  1. Hi Guys

    I wondered if anyone knew how to prevent the screen protector on my iPod Touch (4th gen) from peeling off. There is a small part in the bottom left corner that keeps on coming up a bit. I think it is caused by the (rubber-like) iPod Case that I have which sort of pushes on the corner of the screen protector causing it to come up/out. If I remove the case then it is fine, but I need the case to hide all the scratches on the back!

    The case is a CAPDASE case which is a bit stretchy and translucent. It protects the back

    When I try to "tuck" it under the screen protector it stays fine for a minute or so but then it comes off again

    Any ideas. Might glue work? Will it damage the screen

    It is only one corner. The rest of the front is perfect

    Thanks in advance

    EDIT: It is a CAPDASE Soft Jacket 2 XPOSE

    That "screen protector" is used during manufacture and shipping of the iPod and you can remove it anytime to solve this problem

    No. This is a screen protector i bought myself. Actually, it came with the case. Any suggestions

    Thanks

    How about using a bit of Super Glue?

    Will it not damage the screen. Is the mark left by the glue removable?

    Thanks

    Just use a very little drop from the tip of a needle or paperclip

    Ok,
    I tried normal glue but it did not work properly. I did not have access to super glue. What I did was I cut the protruding bit of the protector using a scissor and that made it a bit better but there is still a little air bubble (not really a bubble but rather, it coming off) in the corner. The thing is not sticky enough...
