FASTENERS WOUD NOT RELEASE FROM THE LINER. IF YOU COULD GET IT OFF THE LINER, ALL THE ADHESIVE STUCK O THE LINER, MAKING THE FASTENER UNUSABLE.
I was hoping this would be the solution to a community job bulletin board I am creating. However, as with other reviewers, I have found it impossible to remove the dots from the original packaging. If after much elbow grease, I can remove one, I the adhesive is stuck to the package and the dot is worthless. From the reviews, it appears this has been a known problem for over a year. It is disappointing that these are still on the market.
I bought these fasteners today. I spent an 30 minutes peeling the fasteners off the plastic it comes on. I could see that a lot of the adhesive was left behind on the plastic. So, i added 6 dots to a small canvas painting that weighs about 2 pounds. About an hour after I thought it worked, i heard the picture fall off the wall. The stickers (still secured with each other) were left either on the wall or the back of the frame. I should have read the reviews first. Sounds like this has been an ongoing issue. Very frustrating.
This product was very useful and had fabulous sticking power!
