Radioshields is eager to expand to all different types of land mobile radios products. Rather than try to buy every type of radio on the planet, we decided to reward those that help us by offering free Radioshields for helping us out. Radioshields also manufactures custom protectors for any device. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas and we will provide a quote for you.
Here's how it works:
Visit our products page. If you have a radio that is not listed you can submit a request to add your radio.
Perform the measurements using the guide below and then complete the form below.
In 1 - 2 weeks you will receive a prototype of the new screen protector. Install per the included instructions. Email pictures of the completed installation to email@example.com. If adjustments need to be made please indicate those in the response to us.
Once the design has been completed, we will send you five free Radioshields Basic Screen Protectors as our thanks for helping us out.
Good lighting is the key to getting accurate measurments. Through a series of simple pictures and questions, we can create a sample screen protector and provide it as a prototype to perform final measurements.
For this process, you will need a good resolution camera, standard metric ruler, and a standard U.S. Nickel. The nickel is used, because it has smooth edges, is a set size, and circles allow us to take multiple dimensions in one shot.

Use these steps for accurate results
Find a well lit area to take photographs.
Using the nickel, place it on top of the display.
It is critical to be aligned as parallel as possible between the camera and the display.
If you are off center or tilted, you will start to see the edge of the nickel (Image 2).
Take a picture of the display once everything is centered (Image 1).
Next put the ruler across the display and measure the top of the display (Image 3). This measurement is reference only and used to check final dimensions. Record this value.
Rotate the display and take a picture of the surface (Image 4). We use this picture to determine if the display if perfectly flat or has a curve. Curved displays are not eligible for Premium versions. Extreme curves will not work on the Basic versions either.
Make a note of any special features or cutouts that are required for cameras, sensors, or buttons.
