Positioning the Adhesive Strips

Peel off the Adhesive Strips by taking hold of the tabs – but be careful not to touch the adhesive surfaces themselves. Press the strips vertically to the surface with the blue tabs at the bottom, facing the wall.

How to remove an Adhesive Nail

This bit’s even easier. Just hold the nail head with one hand and with your other hand take hold of the exposed tab. Here’s the trick: without pressing the nail onto the surface, gently stretch the Adhesive Strip down, parallel to the surface and NOT away from it. This action releases the thousands of tiny individual bonds that make up the adhesive surface, ensuring it comes away cleanly and without damaging your wallpaper.
