Any of you guys use the HORI screen protectors?

I'm getting a new 3ds soon and wondered if it was possible to transfer my currently applied screen protectors to the new 3ds. Has anyone done this? I know I can get it off but I'm not sure it will go on the new 3ds as well as it did on the older model. Should I just get another screen protector and leave the other on so I can sell it on CL for more $?

I use it but the only time I took it off was I messed up and end up having to use a new sheet. The one I have on now still isn't all the way down.

If you're going to have 2 3DS' why not just get new screen protectors for the new system? They aren't expensive.

Theyre awesome I bought them for my XL from JP so I'd have it as soon as I picked up my XL from GameStop.

Just get a new pair of Hori screen protectors. They're great, but you don't want to reuse screen protectors.

Nope. "Insten" brand from eForCity. works great and they're so cheap!. got a 3-pack, each one with a bottom and top protector off of Amazon for $4.27! :D. these were the ones for the XL version of the 3DS btw :).

The Hori ones don't use adhesive. This just use static. So just use a piece of tape, stick it to one side and life slowly. Use a toothpick or rule to gently peel it off.
However, you're going to have trouble putting it back on a new 3DS without any dust/prints....

Just save the headache and put another $10 for a new one.
