Just got cables collected, but how to remove this?!

2nd owner of my AS, just got a cable collect gadget to manage all the cables. But I want to remove these pre used stick staffs. Seems very strong, any good ideas?

Remove the basic tape and fitting with a putty knife. The reaming tape will have to be worked off by rolling your finger over it. The last adhesive should come off with alcohol or mineral spirits.

They were designed to stay on.

Thanks, I understand. But I am really not fan of using these permanent style gadgets.

Take some 'dental floss' wrapped like you are ready for your daily cleanup. Use the taut string as a 'saw' to work back and forth between the wall and the clip base. Will saw off nicely.

Get some 'gorilla tape'... the 200 MPH stuff.. cut in strips wide enough to cover the remaining tape on the wall. Press together firmly.. Add 'heat' from a hair blow dryer.. when warmed up, gently lift the Gorilla tape... it may take a few applications, but the Gorilla tape should lift off the remaining glue...
