A: Absolutely. The Tackoma channel can be cut to any length using a hand saw or power saw. The flexible cover can be cut using a saw or by using a sharp utility knife. For a clean, flush edge a power saw is recommended.

Q: What type of screws are recommended?
A: Included in the kit are #6 x 1-1/2" screws.
Q: How do I remove the Tackoma channel from the wall?
A: We have specifically selected a high strength tape to ensure maximum performance and staying power. Because of this it makes removing of the channel from a wall particularly hard. However, we believe that with patience and a little elbow grease, the Tackoma channel can be removed from any wall without damaging the wall. We have been successful using dental floss to "saw" the tape from the wall. As necessary, you may use Goo Gone (be sure to test an inconspicuous spot on your wall to ensure it doesn't remove the paint) to help dissolve the tape adhesive. If you take your time and do not force the removal, you can successfully remove the channel from the wall without any damage.
