Does anyone know of any screen protectors that are a near perfect fit for the screen size?

My gameshell screen got super scuffed super fast, likely from having the screen in a cheap modular plastic shell. Would like to avoid it with the uConsole.

uConsole has a standard 16:9 5" IPS panel.
Therefore, it would be possible to divert a protective sheet for a smartphone that fits it.

Actual screen size is H 65mm x W 120mm, so protective sheet for a 5.3" ~ 5.4" display would seem to be suitable, but there is no certainty.

With the DevTerm, someone created a 3D printable plastic cover to protect it. I hope someone will do the same with the uConsole.

I have load i will find one and report back once mine gets here

I bought one of those cut-to-size protectors on prime day - I’ve used them in the past for odd sized screens. Not perfect, but they get the job done and are miles better than the liquid “screen protectors”.

I found this one, it says it is 5 inches: [3-Pack] Supershieldz for Nabi Jr. 5" Tablet High Definition Clear Screen Protector - Supershieldz but I don’t have the window size for the Uconsole or the actual size of this screen protector, I would get it to try.

This guy in Japan figured it out:

I ordered the last one of that kind, a bit pricey to import but it looks like a perfect fit and I like the anti glare effect

Thanks for finding it, based on that, I believe this one also fits: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1636557-REG/smallrig_3274_screen_protector_for_bmpcc.html/specs

Got mine from here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003758637657.html
Fits like a glove.

Did you ever get this one to see? I had to replace my screen due to a dead pixel and don’t have anything on the new one and wouldn’t mind applying something.

Ah I just saw that you were linking to the same protector the previous poster did just on Aliexpress. Did you apply it to the screen in the chassis, or before hand?

In the chassis, after full assembly. Thought it was a mistake first, because metal frame borders are quite high, but everything went surprisingly well.
