Speck has quite a unique guide to help you install the protector with perfect placement. Follow the instructions to get your iPhone in the correct orientation, then clean the display, peel off the plastic, and lower the protector onto your display.
The system worked flawlessly and the only thing I had to deal with was a couple of specks of dust that fell on the clean display as I peeled off the protective plastic shipping layer. The sticky dust removal sticker provided made sure of that and installation was easy.
I saw a few bubbles of glue at first, but after a few hours they went away and the protector looks great.
