how do you keep the screen protector from rolling up in the sun?
every time I put the radio in the sun it happens!

Funny I have never heard of this one before. Did you clean the screen before you applied the protector? Try another brand of protector. I always but a large one and then just cut it to shape.

You didn't accidentally apply the backing half, right?

I've owned a dozen or more radios over the years. None have had a screen protector, and none ever had the screen damaged. Why are people putting them on radios? You're not carrying it around in your pocket like a phone with your car keys. Even flying gas and nitro I've never had a screen damaged from those. Seems like a waste of money.

If you have a touch screen radio and get grit on your fingers and swipe the screen the wrong way, it'll scratch it. Some people aren't concerned about this. It annoys the hell out of me personally, and the screen on my radio is well over $200 to replace. Those radios whose screens are surface level or even convex can get scuffed if the radio tips forward. Or accidents can occur such a with my friend who had a zipper case with tools inside shift in his case and scuff the crap out of his new 18SZ on the way to the field. A few scratches on a screen protector bother few and will simply peel away, but I know for a fact that trying to sell a radio used with a scratched up screen often does not go well. A screen protector is cheap insurance even if it can sometimes be annoying to apply.

Never damaged my 14mz screen. My Jeti is also still perfect despite the screen sticking out of the top and having no protective bezel or edge. I'm not saying that people don't damage their screens, just that in 2 decades the only screen damage I've seen is my 9c when the battery melted and burned the whole radio down some time around 2005.

To each their own, if a screen protector makes you feel good, It's not harming anything.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I though all top end radios' came with a screen protector already installed.

Factory plastic tends to peel-up after a short period of time but does provide some protection.
A good quality sp can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled and should last the lifetime of the TX'.

I am the same way about these

It can only go on one way.
