I just got some clear plastic screen protectors for my Wii U. Every time I try to lay one onto the screen I get some bubbles under the protective sheet. Anyone know how to put them on smoothly so there's no bubbles?

haha yeah. but any other plain thing works. the trick is to go slowly so the air won't stay and the bubles won't form, some people use the nails but it never worked for me...

You'll have to press the screen protector everywhere to the side. If it's still there, try to push the bubble out.

I use a microfiber rag and a bottle of isopropyl alcohol if the first few attempts don't work to clean dust off the screen and the protector as dust will always create a bubble. After that match the corners on one side and begin to lay the protector over the screen slowly from left/right with the protector slightly raised and curled as you go along while using the applicator card to flatten it over the screen. Every part of the protector should be applied with pressure from the applicator card slowly from side to side. Look closely for dust bubbles. If you spot one, get a piece of scotch tape and remove it with the tape as no amount of smoothing-out will get rid of the dust bubble. If there's too many small pieces of debris, clean everything as I first stated .

I don't tolerate even the tiniest air pocket anywhere so I redo it till it's perfect to the eye

I once read that applying screen protectors in a humid place helped with dust... Like, in the bathroom after a hot bath.

Using a credit card edge works well.
And some sets of screen protectors even come with a little "smoothing tool" thingy (just basically a hard-edged piece of plastic).
