Removing Tempered Glass

Have you ever wondered what tempered glass actually is? It is stronger than annealed glass and is meant to protect your phone—and you—from injury. When tempered glass breaks, it shatters into dull cubes as opposed to shards. Tempered glass is used on phone screens, shower doors, glass tabletops, glass shelves, car side windows, rear windshields, etc.

How to Remove Tempered Glass from Home Objects

Accidents happen. If tempered glass shatters, don’t panic—but also, don’t touch it. To safely remove an insulated tempered glass door that has been shattered, for example, here is what you should do:

  1. Unscrew the screws that attach the panel to the door.
  2. Peel off the panel.
  3. On the side of the shattered glass, place a towel or sheet on the ground.
  4. Scrape the glass off, but be extremely careful, as the glass will fall.

How to Remove Tempered Glass Screen Protectors

If you need to remove a tempered glass screen protector from your smartphone, turn off your phone first and then try some of these suggestions:

  1. Use a toothpick to create a gap to peel off the edges of the cover. The goal is to lift the screen protector up from each corner.
  2. When you can, fit a credit card into the gap, keeping the strain on the protector, while you slowly remove it.
  3. If this doesn’t work, you can put duct tape on the protector and try to slowly peel the protector out.
  4. Once the protector is off, use a microfiber cloth to wipe the screen clean.
  5. If you’re having a hard time getting the protector off easily, you can soften the screen with a hair dryer. Just be careful not to overheat your phone.
