The clear PET protector sleeves for Atari Lynx game boxes that we sell in our store require some assembly. This is a guide that shows how to get these sleeves ready for use.
Sleeves come folded flat and they have a layer of protective film to prevent scratches during shipping. The film is clear but not as shiny and transparent as the actual protector itself so we recommend that you peel it off. The film runs about half a centimetre short along one of the sides of the sleeve as shown in the photo below. You can use this part of the film to start peeling it off. Simply peel it with your fingernail.
Once the film is peeling off, you can grip it better and peel one side off completely. The film may not come off evenly all the time, especially when the film meets a corner. Keep peeling the film off on one side of the sleeve until it's completely peeled, then you can turn the sleeve around and peel the remaining film off.
WIth the film off, you can now fold the sleeve. First make the sleeve into a rectangular prism by bending out one of the short sides from the inside at a 90 degree angle relative to the long side. This will also cause the opposite short side to ride up, bend that side at 90 degrees from the outside so it's parallel to the first short side. You can then fold in the locking tabs.
When putting a game box into the sleeve, make sure to insert it so that the locking tab is towards the back side of the box. This will give you an unobstructed view of the box cover art!
