Title: PEELABLE DOUBLE-SIDED ADHESIVE CONNECTOR
Abstract:
A connector for coupling an object to a substrate has a first flexible member coupled with a second flexible member. The first and second flexible members have corresponding first and second upper regions, and first and second lower region that define first and second intermediate regions. The first upper region is coupled with the second upper region, while the first lower region is coupled with the second lower region. Through this coupling, the first intermediate region is movable relative to the second intermediate region. To minimize damage to the substrate during removal, the first and second flexible members are configured so that application of a normal force, when coupled with the substrate, causes at least the first upper region to form a critical angle sufficient to peel the connector from the substrate. The normal force is generally normal to and in a direction away from the substrate.
