Do not separate the base magnet from the BakBone until it is affixed to the tablet or
case as described below
If applying to a case or cover, we recommend affixing the Bakbone only to one that is rigid, smooth, and flat, and that tightly adheres to or snugly encases your tablet. Loose, rough, or flexible cases may not bond or perform well with the magnet system, placing your tablet at risk of damage from dropping. Decide where on the tablet or hard case you would like your BakBone. The majority of users choose the center. For tablets or cases with hinges or stands, like the Microsoft Surface RT, centering the base magnet above the kickstand is ideal. Sounds intuitive, but no, we don't recommend affixing the magnet to the touchscreen.

Do not try to quickly pry or "pop off" the magnet as this may damage the tablet or case, especially if the magnet was covering plastic letter or tablet branding.
Begin by very slowly wedging a thin, stiff, flat surface (example: hotel key, plastic putty knife or spatula – do not use a credit card) between the affixed magnet and the tablet or case. Firmly push this wedge parallel to the tablet until the magnet fully separates from the tablet or case; do not try to pry or pop the magnet off. Use rubbing alcohol or another oil-free solvent to clean off off the adhesive residue from tablet or case.
