    Could you use packing tape on those corners?

    Hello that’s a great question. Do you want to keep your film at the same exact same look and transparency.


    If it were my window I would consider using a very small amout clear caulk to seal it in place. Its clear flexible and removable- if needed

    Hello,

    You could use Mod Podge Maybe!

  • I've read that a little water and a squeegee can put it back in place. It's worth a try.

    Yes, Ann is correct about the water (small amount) and a squeege to push the film back in place. If that doesn't hold well, then you can use Elmer's Glue which dies clear instead of water and press well onto the glass and remove the excess glue with a damp cloth.

    Baking soda and toothpaste works for me

    Hi Blanche. You could glue the film down with E6000. Or you could even use thumb tacks if the frame is wooden. Good luck Blanche. I hope you are well.

    Make sure that the corners were dried (excess water removed) with a squeegee. The window film has to have as much excess water removed as possible. You are encouraged to use a baby shampoo water mix when applying the film to the window.

    The windows need to be perfectly clean before applying. I found this out the hard way. Even a tiny bit of sand can ruin a perfect and seamless application.

    Hello Blanche, I used ti use this film too, go to the store and buy clear two sided tape a slpi into the spots where it is lifting. If you are worried about removal when the time come, just use your blow dryer to soften it for removing.
