Anyone have the instructions to apply the Hori screen protectors?

It may seem dumb, but I just got mine (JP) and don't know which goes where.
There's one with white tab and one with red tab.


.:edit:.
I searched before but admittedly didn't look very hard.
I searched again to be sure (when it wasn't 4:30 in the morning ;>) and found the following similar topics:

White tabbed, thick, one goes on the bottom. Red, thin, one goes on the top and I don't even bother using the top one as it’s of no use other then for "glare" they claim. You can also use a bit of tape of your screens before applying so that you get all of the dust off.

Enjoy as they are the best,

Thanks for letting me know. I figured the same as that's the order they are in the picture but wanted to make sure.

It seems weird that they'd make the touch screen one not fit completely (there's a tiny space all the way around the part that displays the game), but the top screen one fits the entire top, meaning even the border around the screen. You'd think they would be more worried about the bottom one covering completely since you may rub the stylus to the borders sometimes.

Thanks for the reply!

well i assume this is so you can get them out and so you can put them on without air bubbles. if you looked at your japanese instructions a lil closer it shows you the bottom screen and the black boarder thats in the screen *turn on your screen to really see what im talkin about. if you line it up like they show it should cover the whole "visable screen" leaving a small space on both sides and top if you put it to far right/left then yes you will have noticed it showing up more when your screen is lit and maybe even have to much space where your stylus tip can fall in the crack.

yes im speaking from experiance hehe. i have put on two so far and i got my girlfriends alot nicer the second time rather than mine having a hudge space on the right hand side

I finished applying both protectors and luckily enough I got it perfect the first time.

That being said, let me tell anyone worried about the touch screen one being smaller than the screen, don't worry. If you end up getting it right, the border of the protector is virtually invisible when a game is one since there's a tiny black border from the LCD that aligns with the edges of the protector.

People say it makes the screen sharper, but it actually dulls the screen every so slightly. That's to be expected though.

Lastly, the touch screen part feels more "rubbery" now. You have to press a little harder to get the touchpad to register, but all in all it's great.

A must have for your DS!
