Removing Bumper Guards Safely

Removing bumper guards may seem simple, but if it is not done correctly it can damage the table itself. Follow these instructions to ensure the process is safe and easy.

Step 1: Gather materials needed to help remove the guard, including a heat gun, thin blade object (such as a butter knife or screwdriver), and a deep dish to catch the extra gum that may come off.

Step 2: With the heat gun, heat up the perimeter of the bumper guard. This will warm up the adhesive and make it easier to remove. Make sure the heat gun is on a low setting.

Step 3: Using the thin blade object, carefully remove the bumper guard starting from one corner. Work slowly and avoid forcing the guard off to prevent any damage.

Step 4: Once the guard is completely removed, use a damp cloth to gently rub off any remaining adhesive or gum on the table’s surface. Allow it to dry completely before proceeding.

Step 5: Finally, use a polish or wax to restore the coffee table’s shine.
