Well, I beg to differ with you, even if you are the 'source' :o) I
actually believe they would be much easier to install if they were a
tad longer. I've wrestled with installation for quite sometime,
trying to eliminate the minuscule, but annoying gap. If they were a
wee bit longer, the gap would be easier to get rid of. As for
cleanliness - yep, I clean the screen before installation - use Klear
Screen - a fabulous product that I highly recommend. I use it on all
my optics. And I also use an antistatic cloth on the screen, which
seems to help eliminate the dust-underneath-the-Nushield problem.
The dust that gets underneath the Nushield enters in through the gap
between the screen edge and the Nushield. It is the gap that is the
problem, and, like it or not, if the Nushield were just a tad longer,
it would eliminate the problem.
