Label Adhesive Back Release Tool

Some adhesive-backed labels do not include pull tabs. This often creates problems in trying to remove the backing from the adhesive label. This problem can be overcome by providing a tool for removing the backing from the adhesive label.

The tool consists of a flat base 1 having mounted thereon a razor blade 2. The blade 2 is mounted on a slope by means of shims 3. A transparent shield 4 is provided.

To operate the device, one corner of a label 5 is inserted face down over the blade 2 to thereby lift one corner of the adhesive backing 6 on the label 5 to thereby provide a pull tab.

The shims 3 enable the tool to accommodate labels of different thicknesses.
