-[* black] Insert wisdom here.
+[* black] Lift the tab straight up and roll your tweezers, so that the white adhesive strip wraps around the tweezer tips.
+ [* icon_note] You may find it easier to pull first with your fingers until there's sufficient slack in the tab to wrap it over your tweezers.
+ [* icon_caution] Try to keep the strips flat and unwrinkled during this procedure; wrinkled strips will stick together and break instead of pulling out cleanly.
+ [* icon_note] Using tweezers to wrap and pull makes it easier to pull evenly along the entire width of the strip, and it's less likely to break. It's possible to simply continue pulling with your fingers if you wish—just be sure to pull evenly along the entire width of the strip.
