If it doesn’t come off easily I just leave them on. If you try as soon as you’ve rolled the patch on and it just slightly peels the edge up you can always roll it back down again

Roll it quite firmly with the roller pictured above and the plastic should come looser. Peel it from the middle out or maybe tear it round the edge in a curve.

dont forget to let the glue go off a bit before putting the patch on


could be mending punctures is a bit of a dark art like sharpening shearing gear...:cautious:
