    Try not to peel them off with your nails/fingers... corner of screen protector+gap between finger and nail=not very happy.

    The beach.
    You can try the tape method.
    Just tape on and tape off a corner,
    and eventually it'll stick to the tape, then you can peel it off.

    If it doesn't work, I use a pin to do it.
    Careful not to scratch your screens though.

    Well, since you're replacing the old screen protectors with new ones, you wouldn't care if you damage your old one, right? Unless you're keeping it for something else. I think the best way to remove the old one would be using the edge of a thin, hard sheet of plastic (like from a clear plastic box or something). It might damage the sticky bit on the old protector a little, but at least it won't damage your screen like a pin might.

    I have tried the tape method but it never seems to work for me.

    They're officially supported accessories by Nintendo. Well the real ones anyway, not the bootlegs.

    It can be kind of difficult, but my girlfriend perfected a way to do it. Cut off a piece of tape that is about two inches longer than the width of your ds lite screen. Place it along the bottom edge of the screen protector leaving an inch overlap on each side(this gives you something to pull on one end and ensures that the jagged ends of the tape don't touch your horis or the screen). Press on the tape edge to edge so that you get good contact with the protector and pull at one end. It should peel up easily. =)

    The beach.
    They keep it real official and clean.
    Easy to get on and peel off.
    Feels as if they aren't there, etc.

    Usually, as long as you can put in a protector w/o dust, then its good.
    I use Horis myself, though, haha.

    Unfortunately, no. I actually got that SCDS1, 2gb Kingston, Hori kit from leetmod and the protectors are fakes. The rest of the kit is legit and I already have horis so it was no biggie. Dealwoot claims to sell genuine Horis and they included some with my Cyclo purchase. It should be here on Thurs and I can let you know if they are real.

    If it helps, Target stores sometimes have Hori Screen Protectors in stock.

    True. Not all stores carry them though. Look em up and see if your local Target has them.
