You may not have used a silicone-free window cleaner, methylated spirit or isopropanol to clean the surface (other detergents may render the adhesive ineffective). It could also be that the surface is insufficiently smooth and firm.
In a word: slowly. Gently pull the non-adhesive tab at the end of the strip downwards in parallel to the surface (NOT away from it) to stretch it. Take care not to press the nail against the surface as this can stop the strip from stretching.
The Adhesive Strip holds your object with flexible polymer U-shaped chains. When they’re holding your object these chains can hold up to XKG. When you stretch them to remove, the chains adjust and do not hold on to the substrate anymore, so the strip can be removed.
This rarely happens. As long as the surface is strong (like glass or tiling) you can gently but firmly twist the hook. The flexible polymer U-shaped chains adjust and do not hold on to the substrate anymore, so you can remove the hook.
Please make sure the surfaces you want to apply the Adhesive Nails to are sufficiently strong. They work best on smooth, flat surfaces like glass, ceramics (tiles), wood and most plastics. Varnished and lacquer surfaces are fine, too, though it can be difficult to remove the strip without damaging the surface if it’s porous.
The short answer is ‘yes’. The slightly longer answer is ‘it depends on the quality of the lacquer’. If it’s slightly porous or if it’s non-stick then the adhesive won’t be effective.
Mounting an Adhesive Nail on dispersion paint is fine – but if the paint is very delicate or porous then removing it later on without damaging the finish can be tricky. It’s important to test the load-bearing quality of your surface before applying an Adhesive Nail.
Use a silicone-free window cleaner, methylated spirit or isopropanol to clean the surface. Steer clear of regular domestic detergents and they can affect the adhesive’s power.
That’s why we’ve developed Adhesive Strips for Wallpaper & Plaster with a foam core and a less viscous adhesive, this results in a larger bonded area and it’s less likely to damage delicate surfaces when removed.
