ArmorSuit MilitaryShield is a specially designed clear protective film. It is accurately-fitted and applied on a wide variety of devices, including cell phones, tablets, watches, cameras, gaming devices, and GPS. MilitaryShield is extremely effective in protection due to its military-grade features, including:
• Ultra HD Clarity
• Extremely thin
• Years of durability
• Maintenance-free quality with self-healing properties
MilitaryShield is a best-value product because it will preserve the same look and condition of your prized possessions. New electronics stay new. It is one of the top film protectors in the market because it offers amazing scratch protection and is yellow-resistant. Just apply it and have no worries.
MilitaryShield is one of the most durable film protectors available! Its durability and protection is so superb that its material can be found in higher-end applications, such as the surfaces of luxury cars, military aircraft, and NASA space shuttles.
Yes! All you have to do is follow our simple step-by-step instructions provided. Please check out our Installation Instructions & Videos. Mistakes and poor applications of MilitaryShield are easily correctable. It can be removed and reapplied without losing its original quality of protection or its look.
Yes, the post-application of MilitaryShield is just as important as the actual application. 24 hours are required so that any moisture from the application procedure can dry up, allowing the Military Shield to set in. Following these instructions will ensure the highest quality of protection against any damage to your device.
Yes, not only is it removable, but it can also be reapplied. In order to remove MilitaryShield, slowly and carefully peel it off starting from one corner.
No, your device is preserved in the same condition before the film was applied. Unlike some other film protectors, MilitaryShield leaves no sticky residue.
Is MilitaryShield effective against scratches, impact, drops and dings?
MilitaryShield only protects against scratches, abrasions, and normal wear & tear. It will not be able to absorb serious impact damage that would otherwise break your device.
MilitaryShield is ultra-thin and measures under 1 mm thick. It should be compatible with most cases, but it's also possible that the combination will not fit. That's why we offer the case friendly version for our screen protectors, which is slightly smaller along the edges. Check with your case manufacturer for compatibility.
Unfortunately, MilitaryShield is only offered as it is advertised.
No, it will not be affected in any way. In fact, MilitaryShield can significantly reduce fingerprints and scratches as well.
MilitaryShield is designed to be compatible with most products. Please contact us for specific questions.
Our competitors' products are often cheap and made of poorer quality material. Here are some of their features:
• Disposable: They will often sell these in sets of at least 3 or 5 because they are one-time applications. If you mess up, you need to use a new protector.
• Visible Scratches: The film protectors are left with hideous scratches until you replace them.
• Reduced Clarity: With time and normal wear-and-tear, the clarity of their screen protectors decrease.
• Poor Construction and Quality: They are prone to cracks and the development of air bubbles due to the material. Some of these protectors have sharp corners that can scratch the device you are trying to protect!
MilitaryShield is superior in every way over its competitors' products.
• Re-applicable: One MilitaryShield can be used over and over. Whether it was accidentally misaligned or whether something got stuck underneath, MilitaryShield can be removed, washed and reapplied.
• Scratch-resistant: Scratches do not leave marks due to the remarkable self-healing properties of MilitaryShield’s material.
• Ultra HD Clarity: MilitaryShield remains crystal clear, even after a long period of time.
• Quality that’s Proven: It is even used on military aircraft and NASA space shuttles.
Do not be fooled by imitators as there is only one true MilitaryShield.
In regards to your concern there are three ways you can obtain more solution.
- If there is still solution left in the Armorsuit bottle, twist off the cap, refill the bottle with tap water, twist the cap back on, and shake the bottle to help mix the solution. The solution bottle is now ready for use. This can only be done once.
- Use the original Armorsuit bottle OR your own bottle to create a homemade version: Twist the cap off, refill the bottle with water, add 2-3 drops (not pumps) of mild liquid soap for every 10ml of water, twist the cap back on, shake the bottle to help mix the solution. The solution bottle is now ready for use. This can be done more than once, simply repeat the steps above when the solution runs out again.

My home-button piece is missing, where is it?
All screen protectors no longer include the home button shield so it has been discontinued. We found that while the home button shield offers the same protection as the entire screen, the home button is touch-sensitive and can interfere with the fingerprint function for some devices.
We apologize for the inconvenience. We are aware that in the YouTube video, the device that the technician uses to apply the protector is a Samsung Galaxy S4. Up-to-date and new installation videos are currently underway to reflect these changes as well as other updates. The concept for applying the screen protectors should still be the same.Back to the top.

Detailed step-by-step instructions are included with your order. We recommend seeing our Installation Instructions & Videos page for first-time users.
Yes, the protective film has no harmful properties in itself, however you must make sure to follow the instructions carefully. Do not use an excessive amount of solution during the installation process. A light layer of moisture is all that is needed. If you are concerned about damaging your device, we recommend using small pieces of tape to cover open areas, such as your home button, earpiece, microphone, and speaker hole.
Method 1: Wait 2-5 hours for the adhesive side of MilitaryShield to become more dry and tacky. Then try to apply the corners again.
Method 2: Apply pressure on the corner with your palm for 1 minute until it dries and sticks on.
Method 3: Use a hairdryer to heat and dry the corner. It will become soft and easier to stick on. Do not heat for over 20 seconds.
Use moistened fingertips to pick up the small piece, lightly spray solution onto the adhesive side, place it down on the surface, and use squeegee to push out moisture. Be careful not to spray too much because this will not allow the small piece to stick. If the small piece is too moist, let it become dry and tacky before trying to apply it.
If MilitaryShield becomes misaligned, has air bubbles, or has dust underneath from the installation process, you have about 5 minutes before MilitaryShield becomes dry and tacky, making it much more difficult to remove. In order to reapply MilitaryShield, spray your fingertips with the solution, peel off the film slowly starting from one corner, and redo the installation process. If your MilitaryShield caught dust underneath, you may use water to rinse it out and then spray the solution on the shield once again to reapply.
If you ever need to remove the ArmorSuit MilitaryShield, simply peel it off with your fingers starting from one corner. It comes off clean and does not leave any sticky residue. If you would like to reapply it, make sure to spray solution on the adhesive side while you are peeling it off. Separate MilitaryShield to ensure it does not stick together. After you have successfully peeled it off, immediately spray on the solution and follow the installation process again.Back to the top.
