Win An Invisible Shield for The Apple iPad 2

Zagg, the makers of the award winning Invisible Shield, sent over six of their protective shields for the Apple iPad 2 – one for me to do an install video and the rest to give away to five lucky readers.

The Invisible Shield protects your expensive iPad 2 with a protective film that is virtually indestructible. Once installed on the iPad, no amount of scratching or keying will put a mark on it. Installation isn’t hard but many people mess it up because they follow the directions on the Zagg website, which tells you to only spray solution on the shield and not the iPad. You can save yourself a migraine sized headache by doing it my way. You should watch the video just for Sally’s commentary.

Win an Invisible Shield for iPad 2

The Invisible Shield for iPad sells for $39.99 direct from Zagg. However, reply to this post explaining why I should award you an Invisible Shield and I might give you one. Ideally, you should have an iPad 2 already or have one on the way. Let’s face it, the Invisible Shield is pretty worthless all by itself.

An Invisible Shield will also be awarded to the winner of my Apple iPad 2 contest. If you haven’t entered yet, you have until the end of the month to do so. If the winner wants, I can install the Invisible Shield onto the iPad 2 as well. Good luck and enter now!

  1. You should send me the invisible shield, because I am the one who is going to win the iPad 2 via your contest.

    1. John Chow says:

      If you win the iPad, you will get a shield. 🙂

      1. d3so says:

        I can’t wait until the contest ends. I know I’ll win this time!

        1. How can you know that D3so?

          I don’t think you’ll win this time as you have already won a book which you said you’d review. If you did so, I apologize, and please post a link to the post here to where you reviewed it.

          Now it’s somebody else’s turn to win. But since it’s a draw everybody has the same chance regardless of previous luck. It’s not that I don’t wasn’t you to win but that this time I think it would be more just if someone who hasn’t won yet would win, like me.

          If you win I’ll still be happy for you anyway but will have to question the luck of the draw’s sense of justice.

          1. d3so says:

            I believe that we have control of our future and I see that ipad in mine 😉
            Plus, I don’t believe in luck.

            I finished the book, I completely forgot about writing a review for it.
            Thanks for reminding me.
            I’ll let you know once it’s finished by posting a comment here.

      2. Hey John,

        Since you also said that inside the post I am now very sure that don’t need to give any reasons as to why I should win the shield since I want to win the iPad 2 and have given the reasons why for that already and you say the winner of the iPad will also get the shield with it automatically.

        I hope that the iPad that I’ll be winning is going to come with the shield already installed.

    2. PPC Ian says:

      Sathish, you are quite confident! 🙂 best of luck to you!

    3. How can you win something you can’t see? Isn’t it invisible?

  2. Allen Walker says:

    Why I should win the Invisible Shield: Because it looks really cool. 🙂

    1. No, because it protects your iPad and oh yea, it’s invisible.

    2. d3so says:

      I don’t know how an invisible shield can look cool.

  3. Saw the photos of it and I was sure that something is going to come … 🙂

  4. imagine says:

    I thought the product was a little expensive until I saw the ipad scratch test video. WOW. LOL.

  5. Abhik says:

    Cool.. I finally found a solid scratch guard for my N97 mini 🙂

    1. Abhik says:

      OMG!! Sally is using that solution as a body lotion :p

      1. PPC Ian says:

        I honestly think the solution Zagg sends is just water. 🙂

        1. Abhik says:

          Well, water, when dried, can’t hold that type of object on a glossy surface.
          There should be some kind of lubricated adhesive mixed with water.

  6. Fazal Mayar says:

    great tutorial john… shields are important for aps…and cases too. Our gems need protection !

    1. PPC Ian says:

      That’s right! iPads can get damaged easily. Zagg makes it easy to protect your investment!

    2. Why is a shield important for an app? An app is a program? What dude?

      1. Abhik says:

        I guess he meant “appliances”.

    3. Ashish Patel says:

      i agree with you fazal…

  7. I was really impressed with the video of the scratch test – when he put that little sander thingy on it I positively winced and was amazed that it didn’t scratch the Ipad itself – but you should let Sally do some of your videos John, she is really good 🙂

  8. Mike says:

    Why I should i get a shield John, because my wife seems to use my iPad 2 so much that it seems when it my turn to use the iPad 2 it’s dirty…also She viewed your video on you tube and she says she loves your kitchen …lol wow.. Please send me one thanks…

  9. Shawn Knight says:

    Having used an Invisible Shield on my original iPad and iPhone 4, I can vouch that they are quality products. The only issue I had during installation was there wasn’t enough solution provided so use it sparingly! Since I now have an iPad 2, I need protection for it as well and Invisible Shield is a good choice that doesn’t add any bulk to your shiny new device.

    Good luck everyone!

  10. Justin says:

    I don’t have an ipad or need the shield, but I do recommend placing one on your ipad. I am using a similar shield cover for my new iphone that I just bought. After I got the salesman to cut the price in half of course.

    Nice kitchen BTW.

  11. Adam Browne says:

    i would love to win because i just ordered my ipad and i need some great protection straight away from opening the box.

    Thanks Adam

  12. PPC Ian says:

    Great stuff, John! I have the Zagg Invisible Shield on my iPad 1 and iPhone 4. It’s a great product, but a little tricky to install. Your video will surely help people with the installation.

    1. Abhik says:

      Ian, believe me, the one that I currently have on my N97 mini is more trickier to install than this.
      That took me almost an hour and three pieces of those to install perfectly and without air bubbles.

    2. d3so says:

      Do you plan on getting the ipad 2 Ian?

  13. Michal por says:

    Why should I get the The Invisible Shield because my ipad2 needs it bad don’t have money to pay for it. Just got the iPad for a gift and if I try to save for it it will be months before I get one

  14. Michal por says:

    Sorry my e mail came out wrong it’s [email protected]

    1. Michal por says:

      Why should win The Invisible Shield because I got the iPad 2 as a gift and my iPad 2 needs it badly if I save up to get it it will be months before I can get.

  15. I need to get me an iPad first.

  16. Jonathan says:

    I think I should get the invisible shield because I really need one I got an iPad2 as a present from my dads friend who works at Apple and I need something to protect it and my mom won’t let me buy one and I’m worried my iPad2 won’t last

  17. Herbert says:

    Why I should win the Invisible Shield ? Because I am an ordinary guy from Brazil who is trying to make money online by blogging, and John Chow dot com is one of the best resources I found until now. So, John wants to make me happy and motivate me to keep on blogging so he is gonna send me one Invisible Shield.

  18. William Boyd says:

    i should win the Invisible Shield because i do not have anything to protect my iPad 2. I really don’t want to get the beauty of the iPad scratched. That is why i think I should win the Invisible Shield.

  19. Vinh says:

    Hi John,

    Why I deserve the invisible shield? Hmmm, I’m not sure. I was even at the Ipad 2 launch in Vancouver at the Oakridge Mall, but unfortunately I was too late to reserve an Ipad 2. The lineup at the back of the mall was huge. I did a small video of the launch and uploaded it up to my Youtube. I’m still trying to find an Ipad 2, but they’re all sold out everywhere. I’m gonna try to reserve an ipad 2 tonight at the Apple Store. So, please, please, may I please have a “shield” so I can place it magically onto my lovely ipad 2 like you did, in your video. I promise that I’ll treasure the invisible shield and my ipad 2 like my own car err I mean like my children? By the way, do you think that we can have a Van Tech highschool reunion someday for the class of ’84? I hope so. Take care.

  20. Yangman says:

    If I paste it all over my body will it make me invisible? Send me one and I’ll make a video to show you guys. 😉

  21. Greg says:

    I will paste it on my ipad and i will love john chow dot com forever!!! PLEASEEE PLEASEEE PLEASEEE PLEASEEEPLEASEEE

  22. Daviid says:

    When i win the Ipad2 the zagg shield will come 2nd, And cannot wait to receive it .

  23. I need one for my iPad 1st generation that I won from shoemoneys contest .

    1. John Chow says:

      This is for the iPad 2. It won’t fit on the iPad 1.

  24. Kate Kutny says:

    John, That is really nice of you to add the invisible shield to the contest. Who ever wins the Ipad 2, will be a really happy person I’m sure!

  25. Kenn Crook says:


    You should send me one of the Zagg shields. Why? Because I have a little girl like you and you know what destructive (but cute) little beasts they can be. Also, since I spent all my cash on this 64 gig white beauty I’m typing this on… I could really use a freebie. Lastly, because I’m so nice that I forgive you for having a Flash video *gasp* on your site! :). I was really wanting to watch your video showing how to put the shield on the RIGHT way. If you DO choose me please send me a link to an iPad friendly version of that video.


    1. John Chow says:

      The video is on YouTube. You can watch YouTube videos on the iPad. 😛

  26. fas says:

    Well I dont want it because I dont have an iPad, Its better off to someone who can make use of it though.

  27. Nick says:

    I hope to win this so it can protect my new iPad going back and forth to school. Lots of wear and tear with the use. It would be very helpful!

  28. Ben says:

    I waited in line for the ipad for hours and hours and i really dont want it to get all scratched and banged up, also i want a form of protection with my smart cover and lets face it there aren’t any at the moment compatible with the smart cover. Anyways i hope i can win one!
    Thanks again for the giveaway!


  29. Rick says:

    I should win this because I own about 500 shares of Zagg, so therefore I am a part owner of the company and helped pay for .000000000473% of those shields… Shouldn’t it go back to the rightful owner ?? 🙂 …. Anyways, I made the mistake not to put an invisible shield on my first iPad and despite it being in Apple’s full body case, the back and screen still suffered a few scratches. I need to protect my iPad 2 this time so the device doesn’t suffer the same scars.

  30. Alex B. says:


    You should send me the shield because I have a strange affinity for all things made of plastic. I will add it to my collection of soda bottles, laundry detergent containers, and grocery bags. Just kidding, I’m about to get the ipad this weekend and I’m afraid that apple’s new cover won’t protect it, so please send me this shield so that I can protect my precious ipad!


  31. John,
    I just viewed your youtube video of the Zagg shield for the Ipad2. It looks great! My 7 year old son has been using it more than me, which is fine. But, after he has used the iPad 2 for a few minutes the screen looks like a finger painting. It takes for ever to clean it. The zagg shield looks like it would help protect it from my son. I want to support him using the family iPad, but to protect my investment. Please pick me.

    Thanks for your time,

  32. Carsten Ejstrup says:

    Hi John,
    After watching Your video on YouTube applying the Invisible Shield to iPad 2 I thought: Why not throw one of Your packages my way? 🙂
    Why? Because after all.. how many danes have applied for one? 🙂
    Great site by the way.

  33. Lucy says:

    I would love to win an invisible shield… I have a cheap plastic screen cover on my iPad and it is scraaaaaaaatched. I’m a proud owner of the Zaggmate keyboard and would love another Zagg product on my iPad! Thanks for the opportunity!

  34. David says:

    I should the invisible shield because I am the father of three and I am also a teacher of 28 students. So I really need the protection for my iPad 2. My kids and students really beat up my iPad 2 so I want to make sure to protect it. thanks for your consideration

  35. Sheila Needs a Shield says:

    Simple. My name is Sheila, and I need the shield. Here’s why:
    I need closure.

    I picked up an Invisible Shield today with firm plans to keep my hands off of it and wait for someone to help me install it. Someone more detail-oriented. Someone more *patient*. But, after looping various YouTube instructional videos & spending some time with Google, I convinced myself that surely, surely to God I could handle this.

    Yeah. Well. An hour-and-a-half later I’m about halfway through the fun part with the squeegee, so ridiculously proud of myself… and then the bedroom door flies open and my dog – who has never displayed a single instance of agility in his 7+ years – manages to hurl himself up 4 ft into the air, straight onto my workspace.

    So now I have an Ewok skating across the table… straight for the Shield which is so delicately balanced… and suddenly half of the Shield is attached to my dog’s side, still slip-sliding along the desk. Brutal. And all without even giving the Shield a chance to be fully prepared for the onslaught. Without giving me the satisfaction of showing my friends that *I* installed the bubble-less, fingerprint-less screen cover all on my own. My iPad 2 needs protection before another scratch mars its lovely screen.

    I need closure.


  36. Janet Schafer says:

    Past experience has shown me that NOT HAVING a protective covering for ipads, laptops and iphones will result in many scratches, dings and dents. If you ever want to resell or trade in your equipment, you wont get as much for it because of the damage.

    I believe that one of the protectors should be given to me because I plan to make the most of my ipad and resell it or donate it to charity when I am done with it.

    I will achieve success no matter what bumps are in my road. My success does not depend on getting a free protective cover, but saving money does.

  37. Michelle says:

    Please let me win because you are my idol. You are the person I want to be someday. Someone who enjoys his job and includes his family into all his activies. Only a few can do that these days. Sally’s really cute. Though I can no longer have children, I wish that I had a girl, too. You are very lucky.

  38. Ryan says:

    Great video. I would like to install the invisible shield with my daughter as well. She seems to be about the same age and asks many of the same questions due to her interest in helping out dad. It would be a fun activity for us to do together while watching your video post for instruction….

    Thanks again for the great website and interesting reviews..

  39. Debbie says:

    What a beautiful video not only for the education but for the happiness and special father-daughter smiles you have given us.
    I want to win one so i can also protect my iPad and have a lot of special moments playing with my 6 year old grandson.
    Thank-you for having this opportunity for us!

    when will be next contest like this.

  41. Kelvin Juezan says:

    Hey John,

    I would like to win because i am about to graduate and my parents say they will get me an iPad 2 at the end of the year so i would like to win because my parents are nice enough
    to give me one i want my ipad 2 to last so i can cherish there generosity.

    Thanks for these great opportunities for giveaways even if i do not win id like to thank you.
    Love your vids !

  42. Andrea says:

    Hello John,
    why i should win an invisible shield?… well… i got one when i bought my ipad2 here in italy, it was a screen only version…. but i messed it up cause i didnt see your video guide before trying to install it! :/ now that u explained my how to do, im sure i wont fail again 😉

  43. Connor says:

    I just found your site. I was looking for videos to install my zagg on my iPad 2. Your video is great, except that zagg doesn’t give much solution when you purchase it from them. Any video that I see for an install that was for a zagg promotion, they give you that huge spray bottle. When a normal customer orders it, we get 10ML of solution. That is clearly not enough. In addition, the spray bottle we get is like a card almost and doesn’t do a good job spraying. Just wanted to let you know. I ordered my shield and am disappointed that whenever zagg promotes their shield, they give the presenter 20x the solution of a normal person.

    i love ipad its my hand system to work on travelling

  45. Anh Trinh says:

    Hello John Chow, I’ve just saw your tutorial video showing how to install the Invisible Shield for iPad 2 and I was pretty impressed. I really like that product from Zagg but I’ve never tried it so I wonder if you could send me one too (I’m already using iPhone 4 and iPad 2) so I could really feel what I saw in the video. Thank you =)

  46. Jake harries says:

    I think I should win because I’m very unlucky and this time I think I am going to win

  47. anitha says:

    i would like to win this because its not available in our market

  48. LIANG says:

    Hi, John,
    I just saw your tutorial on applying an InvisiShield on Youtube. You made it so easy and I am tempted to give it a try. My boyfriend had the film on his iPhone 4, and recently tried to take his iPad2 to the mall to get one “professionally” installed. But the vendors in the mall didn’t have the back film yet. I want to show him how easy it is to install one yourself. I hope I win!

  49. Max says:

    Hey John,

    I had an invisible shield on my iphone, but i totally failed installing it. And now i got the iPad 2 and its my new little baby 😉 I dont want any scratches on it and been lookin for a good protection since i got. After i saw your tuturial, i knew i need an invisible shield again. Just a lot of SOLUTION 😀

    So it would be awesome if you could award me one 🙂

  50. Pawel says:

    i deserve the ipad 2 because i hate scratches.

  51. I bet it’s hard to test a product when you’re not that sure that it will protect your iPad. It’s too pricey to be scratched. 🙂

  52. i would like to try with my ipad because it have some scratch

  53. Icing says:

    Will the shield cover the sim card ?

  54. I have an invisible shield on my iPod as well, works like a charm but I had to do it on several attempts due to misalignment. Thanks a lot shaky hands!
