Step 1 - Read all instructions before beginning.

Step 2 - Clean Device
  • The surface that your Metro Skin sticks to needs to be as clean as possible. It is very important to clean your device before applying your Metro Skin.
  • First wipe the device surfaces where the Skin will be applied, with a slightly damp cloth or micro fiber towel. Do not get water directly on your device.
  • Let dry completely.
  • Next wipe the application service with a cloth slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. This removes almost any finger print grease.
  •  Let dry completely.
Step 3 -Examine Your Metro Skin
  • Look at your Skin and how it is cut.
  • The thin sections easily stretch and/or break if you do not handle the Skin with care during the application process.
  • Use caution when removing the Skin from the backing paper.
  • Avoid stretching any part of the Skin, especially the narrow parts. Stretching the Skin will cause it not to fit the device precisely. The adhesive side of the Skin can stick to itself and may cause damage the Skin.
 Step 4 - - Apply Your Metro Skin
  • It is important to take your time when applying your Skin.
  • Pick a starting point on your Skin on the edge (preferably the largest area of the Skin).
  • Gradually peel back the backing paper exposing the adhesive side of the Skin.
  • Line it up over the top of your device as closely as possible. A good guide is to find a couple of buttons on your device close together and start applying the Skin there.
  • Carefully apply the Skin to the device making sure it lines up with all the button openings and curves on your device.
  • If the Skin does not line up correctly, carefully peel it off slowly and try again. Make sure not to stretch the Skin or it will no longer fit.
  • As you apply the Skin to the device, firmly press the Skin from the middle to the edges, pushing any air bubbles out from under the Skin. To make this easier, you can use a credit card or other plastic card to help apply more even pressure. Be careful not to scratch your Skin.
  • When applying the Skin to curves or corners you can gently stretch the Skin to get a very tight fit
How do I remove bubbles in my Skin?
  • Most small creases and bubbles will disappear after time, but if the creases or bubbles are large you may slowly peel the Skin back up and carefully reapply. Keep repeating until the Skin is in its proper place and is smooth. In some cases, poking the bubble gently with a sharp pin will allow the air to escape. This should only be attempted as a last resort.
  • IMPORTANT: Be careful not to lift the skin too quickly or you may stretch or tear the Skin.
