Another sticker must be affixed to the other side for easy attachment. Next, you need to remove the shipping film from the base of the tempered glass, and then turn the glass over and fasten it.

Usually one set with 3-4 stickers comes with a screen protector, which also has a wet and dry wipe. Often, when buying inexpensive tempered glass guide sticker is absent. In that case, you can use duct tape as an alternative. Even better is to use masking tape.
