Removal of Black Equipment Safety Straps

by Barbara 2. January 2008 04:26

Q: "Is it possible to remove the adhesive and straps if the appliance needs to be moved?" (Re: SF-PU-01111-2, Two Packages of Black Equipment Safety Straps)

Answer: Yes, the adhesive and the safety straps (both black and white types) are removable. No solvent is required.
Removal Instructions:

  • Place a business card or piece of plastic under a tack remover or similar tool to reduce scratching.
  • Insert the tip of the tool under the edge of the fastener and apply upward pressure. (Do not pry.) The edge of the fastener will begin to lift in 5 to 10 seconds.
  • As the edge lifts, insert the tool farther and continue to apply lifting pressure.
  • Remove the fastener by hand when the edge is high enough.
  • Remove any additional adhesive by dabbing it with the adhesive on the fastener. If a large piece remain, remove it by pulling, not by rubbing. The adhesive will not leave a surface residue.

Please contact us if you have further questions.
