Default LCD screen protector not remaining firmly attached

I have two Giottos lcd screen protectors which I purchased for my a700 and neither of them are staying in place after I apply them to the camera. I purchased the first one and it would fall off after about half a day. Went ahead and got another identical one because I removed first one and then repositioned it and thought that the glue had lost its hold. However the second screen protector that I applied did not remain in place any better. I could tell after removing the film on the back that the glue had very litle tack to it. I even tried heating the protector up with a hot air dryer to try and get the glue tackier before applying the protector, but that did not cure the problem either.

So my question is what type of glue can I safely use to attach the screen protector to my LCD? I would like a glue that is safe for the screen and plastic and will also allow me to remove the protector sometime in the future should the need arise.

Thank you.

Try using a Zagg Invisible Shield instead. http://www.zagg.com I have them on anything I own that has an LCD (except my TV ).

Actually I prefer the Giottos/GSS style protector.

I have had a Giottos on a FZ8 for over year and a half without any problems, and I must have removed it about three times before I finally had it positioned to my liking.

I did not have any problems with GSS protector on A300 either.

What about using rubber cement?

I sure wouldn't use anything like that. But, then, it's not my camera.

Just thought I would toss that out and see if I could get response on what type of adhesive would be save to use.
