Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "At present, mobile phones have been one of the most important communication tools for people in daily life, but in use the screens of the mobile phones may be easy to get scratched, impairing the display effect and appearance of the device. For this reason, people usually cover the screen of the mobile phone with a plastic-made light transmissive film, to prevent or minimize wear and tear or damage to the device. However, it is difficult for common users to achieve accurate positioning between the mobile phone film and the mobile phone screen while applying the film on the screen, thus a large amount of time is required for adjusting the relative position between the film and the screen slowly, the process is time-wasting and inconvenient."
In addition to obtaining background information on this patent, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent: "In order to overcome the drawbacks of the existing technologies, the objective of the present invention is to provide a mobile phone film positioner and mobile phone film with positioning structure used therewith, so as to simplify the positioning procedure between the film and screen, and thus make the manipulation of film application become simpler and quicker.
"The technical solution of the present invention to solve its technical problem may be described as:
"A mobile phone film positioner comprises a housing, on which a recess for accommodating a mobile phone and a mobile phone film is provided; the recess is matched with the mobile phone and the mobile phone screen film in shape and size, and provided with positioning grooves on the two ends thereof respectively, wherein the positioning grooves are provided with projections on the bottoms thereof for locating the mobile phone film.
"A mobile phone film with positioning structure comprises a film layer, which is matched with the mobile phone in shape and size, and covered with two film protective layers at the two sides thereof respectively, wherein at least one of the film protective layers is provided with lugs at the two ends thereof, and the lugs are provided with locating holes therein cooperating with the matched positioner for positioning.
"As a further improvement of the technical solution described above, the film layer may be a light transmissive film made from Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic.
"As a further improvement of the technical solution described above, the film layer is provided with a bonding layer on one side thereof, and the film protective layer having the lugs on the other side thereof.
"The mobile phone film positioner according to the present invention is used with a mobile phone film with positioning structure, which is disclosed in the present invention as well. To apply the film onto the screen of a mobile phone, first tear off one film protective layer from the film, and leave another one which is provided with the lugs thereon, to expose the bonding layer; place the film into the recess of the mobile phone film positioner with the film protective layer facing downwards, locate the film in the recess by aligning the lugs with the positioning grooves, and the positioning holes with the projections; place the mobile phone face-down into the recess, in this way the bonding layer of the film is in contact with the screen of the mobile phone, thus the accurate positioning between the film and the screen is achieved; finally take the mobile phone out from the recess and stroke the film to squeeze out the air therein, to complete the film application.
"The beneficial effects of the present invention may include: the mobile phone film positioner and mobile phone film with positioning structure used therewith provided in the present invention simplifies the positioning or aligning process between the film and screen, and thus makes the manipulation of film application become simpler and quicker, even the common users could also finish the job easily."
