How to get transparent backing off window film?

Nancy FlemmingJohnavallance82Linda Sikut


I have tried the recommended tape on each side and pull, tried heating the back a little to see if it would crinkle so I could get a grip to pull apart. Tried to carefully slice a corner to no avail. The problem is the backing is transparent and does not have and edge.

    Take it back to where you bought it and ask them to help you. If you bought it on-line, use their help service. Good luck.

    I've done this successfully before using the tape method. All I can say is that you have to have patience and do it slowly and carefully. Sometimes I just have to walk away for a while because it's frustrating. Then I come back and try again. If you're been patient, followed the instructions and still can't get it, take Bijou_2010's advice.

    Good luck
