Hi all. I now have listed (a limited number until new stocks arrive) a transparent red perspex screen cover for laptops. With most laptops this will simply lean against your screen no need for tape, some will require descreet use of some form of sticky tap, electrical insultaion tape would be great here as it won't leave a permantent mark on your laptop cover, it all depends on the hinge mechanism. Will my HP Compaque no tape needed. Will preserve your night vision as well as that of others around you.

Ebay item number 290575676211

The thread was started 6 years ago , number won't exist anymore.
Most laptops have a night vision setting or your astro software will certainly have a red screen setting.
