Is it possible to remove the magnetic plate from the monitor once it has been glued to the monitor?

I’ve managed to detach a couple of them, using something flat, sharp and durable, but I haven’t been able to do it without leaving some marks on the monitor I detached the plate from…

I had the problem of the Dell Logo protruding. So I cut a a couple of strips off an old credit card and attached one either side of the logo with a fine nozzle glue gun going around the edges. Then I attached the magnetic strip to the plastic. So far so good!
Tobii should consider that a large number of monitors have a protruding logo…

Thanks for replies.
I managed to detach the plate by moving a credit card between the plate and the monitor. It is a bit tricky to get it in, had to help with my fingernails. After it was between I slowly shoved it through. It needs some patient and force. The monitor had no marks 🙂 So using a plastic card works good.
@pi: thanks for the idea for the logo. My next monitor has it right in the middle…

Use a hair-dryer to heat the metal strip up, it will soften the adhesive.
I think a better idea would be an adjustable stand – weighted sufficiently to overcome the torque of the stiff usb cable – making use of the threaded bushes on the base of the device.14/11/2017 at 01:08 #7581TonyParticipant
Fishing Line is the BEST! Dental Floss will work too if you don’t have any fishing line. After that a credit card, finger nail or anything else flat and softer than monitor plastic can be used to remove the remaining glue.
