Update 2/1/2022 - This dust guard is designed for OEM (original) sized LCD only. Trimming required for IPS displays.

When modding your GBA console with a new screen, its a common issue that dust may get inside, even the tiniest bit onto your LCD. Use this protector to help prevent it. 

FEATURES:

  • The dust guard from Retrosix creates a perfect sealed barrier between the inside of the console and the LCD itself, while the lens on the top provides the barrier from dust coming in from the outside.
  • Single sided padded adhesive, similar the OEM style.
  • Makes disassembly easier if you end up needing to change parts in the future. With self adhesive on one side to stick it to your GBA shell according to whether it is IPS-modified, non IPS-modified, or OEM. The other side presses against the LCD, so you can still service and remove your screen should you need to.
  • Once installed, you should never get dust into your screen. You can also keep the plastic film on the LCD's during install until all you have to do left is apply the Lens.

Works, but doesn’t fit IPS displays

It does do it’s job, but not out of the box. It doesn’t fit to the size of IPS displays and has a smaller display window than it should leaving some material over the display blocking the view. You will need a craft knife and patience to get it to fit properly with IPS displays & associated shells. This item needs to be redesigned to properly work (or specified on which exact IPS display it is for) with IPS displays.

It works, but take your time and be prepared to trim it with a craft knife or razor blade of some sort. It really should not be advertised as an IPS dust guard because it doesn’t work like that out of the box. Modification is required.

Pics are of before & after trimming. Which is a real pain due to the adhesive. Both are of the crystal clear IPS ready shell with this “IPS Ready” dust guard that’s clearly not for IPS ready shells sold here.

Garrett,

I apologize for the unclear description on our listing-- you are right that this is not designed for IPS displays and will not fit out of the packaging. I have updated the listing and I've gone ahead and refunded the money you paid for this item. I hope we can continue to earn your business and I want to thank you for taking the time to let us know about this issue!

doesn’t quite fit

you can see the guard through the lens on the top and left sides of the gba. you can cut it to fit the shell but it’s advertised for the ips screen so you shouldn’t have to.
