The again of the field has easy directions so you will get the concept of methods to set up the display.  Every field comes with one display, and the display ‘tape’.

Let the window dry.  The display tape won’t stick nicely if the window perimeter remains to be moist from wiping it down.
In the meantime, unfold the display and maintain it as much as the window to make sure it should match the window opening.  It’s greatest in the event you go away about ½ inch further on every edge.  It’s because if the window is just too taut and also you shut the window generally the display will come free on an edge.

***This tape is a superb little invention.  One facet of it’s sticky (that is the window perimeter edge) and the opposite has these little versatile plastic grippers on them (that is what the precise display sticks to).
After the tape is put in throughout the sting, it’s time for the final step-installing the display.

That is tremendous simple.  Simply maintain the display as much as the window opening and ensure to go away about ½ inch further on all edges.  Press the display to the grippers on the tape and voila!  Do this on all four edges.  As soon as once more, make sure that to not make the display too tight.  In case you have an excessive amount of further on your liking over the perimeters you can trim them off.  It’s all as much as you.
