    Still, looks like you need a clam shell lid for transport.
    An explorer explores new ideas and things, but somebody stuck in mud, complains.
    - But the explorer complains about how much better the territory he has discovered is instead.

    -Since when has denying that the possible is possible been reason? Such is the life of some skepticism.
    -Normalcy involves what is realistically possible, not just what you say.

    Yeah I'd love to get one, but now I'm just taking the monitor off and putting it back in the case. It's a quick release thumbscrew so it's fast and much safer to transport

    Is a clamshell something made by RED or another company for these?

    I have a 3D printer, I don't have a 7" LCD but I'll have the 4.7" when my Scarlet-W arrives. I might try whipping up a design for a small and lightweight clip-on cover. Maybe reversible so you can clip it on the back of the monitor when not in use? That could work well for the 4.7", it looks like the 7" has a little bump on the back that could interfere.

    Thanks for the tip. How is easy to remove and change once it gets scratched? Do I have to open the whole redtouch?

    +1!! Thanks for the tip, Jason! After reading your post, I ordered the same deal, cut out one piece and slapped it on my 7" screen. It was super easy to apply, I have a couple small bubbles in mine, but they're not noticeable when the display is on. The protector has a great feel and looks great, as if nothing is even there. The protector is easier to clean than the display itself, and doesn't hold finger print smudges as much as the actual display.

    I highly recommend Jason's tip. I think I got my protector on Amazon for about $30. Great deal to protect my screen and have spares for the future.

    Thanks again, Jason.

    I have the tempered glass screen protectors for both my smartphone and two iPad versions (iPad Air 4 and iPad Pro). I have to say that they are really useful and essential to protect the display. If it hadn't been the screen protector, my iPad Pro could have been destroyed.
