English term or phrase: peel back
Remove the gage assembly by peeling tape at a shallow angle and transferring it onto the specimen. Make sure gage alignment marks coincide with specimen layout lines. If misalignment does occur, lift the end of the tape at a shallow angle until assembly is free. Realign and place. (…) Now, by lifting at a shallow angle, peel back one end of the taped assembly so as to raise both gage and terminal. By curling this Mylar tape back upon itself, it will remain in position, ready to be accurately repositioned after application of adhesive.
