I've always used screen protectors.. never needed it but ''better safe than sorry''..

Good buy Roy, although I have always found with these that no matter how I apply them, I always get a couple of bubbles.

I now only use the amour protect screens which fit the rear and top screen. As they are solid, they mount with now bubbles.

Mind you, they are a bit more expensive....

Yes, I use these type protectors, too. Whatever I can find that's cheapest. Just put a new one on my K20 and I somehow got a major bubble under one corner that now won't stick. So, get to start over again with another one.

For years, when I have a plastic screen to protect, I simply have plastered it with clear packing tape, carefully trimmed after placement with a razor. I always have a roll of this tape at my desk. I seal the address and rear flap of envelopes of personal mail for security.
Works for me. If the air bubbles cause you concern, use a sharp needle, prick the bubble lightly, and certainly not into the screen, and press the air out the small hole. Can't get all the air, but enough to be happy.
Some will be concerned the plastic screen will be affected. Not so, so far here.
