    Just got my Hori DSL screen protectors in the mail today from play-asia. Not surprisingly, the instructions to apply them are in Japanese. Can someone translate the instructions?

    I think the pictures are self explanatory....just remember the color tabs (I think red and black) shows you what to peel off last. AKA after you've peeled off the other side and stuck it on the screen and taken out the bubbles. Then you peel off the colored tabs for the smooth finish.

    Agreed!

    P.S. One thing u should know is that the screen protector does not cover the DS's screen entirely. So be careful where u start!

    The japanese pictures weren't very helpful. I had to look online for a while to get some better directions. The tabs were all the same colors and I didn't want to screw them up.

    Yeah, the pictures really don't show enough. I gather (from this thread and the pics.. although mostly from this thread) that I need to peel something off from both sides. I assume I take the clear one off first, then apply the protector to the screen, then take the other side off (the one with the coloured tab).

    Now, what I still don't know is.. which one goes where? Are they interchangable, or is one for the top screen, and one of the touch screen? One has a red tab, the other has a white one (the pictures aren't in colour.. so they provide no hints..)

    Ill help you!

    The big one is for the top screen, the small one for the bottom screen.

    First you peel of the back has no sticker on it, then you put it on the screen (make sure you got it right, on all side same space etc..) and pull on the label at the side of the protector, now the top plastic should come off..DONE

    Don't let the last tab come off til you're sure everything is perfect. I wanted to take out some dust but the tab fell off and i was screwed.

    Oh yeah the bottom one is a bit thicker and more rigid.

    When you say the big one, you mean after you have peeled the back (b/c the protector that looks smaller is actually bigger with the backing on..)

    If I remember correctly, the one with the big backing I used for the bottom touchpad. Just take both pieces and match them against your screen to see which is for which.

    /confused about matching them against the screen... Both screens are the same size, are they not?

    Both screens are the same size.

    One of the protectors will fit onto just the touchscreen.

    The other protector will cover the top screen AND the grey border around it.

    So to summarise, after peeling the protector off the backing, the small one will go on the touchscreen and the large one will go on the top screen.

    The yellow sticker with Japanese writing indicates the top of the protector - Make sure that side is facing towards you when placing them.

    Just remember you can use some scotch tape to get the protector off the screen if you screwd up.

    They're re-appliable for quite a while.

    OK, I get to the stage where it looks like this:

    but when I try to peel back the last layer, (ie. with the red tab).. the whole thing comes off. What am I doing wrong?

    you're not doing anything wrong, try peeling slower because the red is supposed to be only attached to the film on top after you iron out the bubbles and making sure it's straight etc. AKA your last move for a unscathed screen.
