I use the tip of my knife, and have since I started with no problems. It doesn't leave any marks in the film/adhesive, so how is it bad advice?

exactly

so you pick at it with the end of your blade and it leaves no marks? if it works for you I didnt mean it to be an insult personally I think its a bad habit if another way works just as easy. theres always more then one way to get it done, dosnt mean there all right.

all you do is take your olfa and turn it so the blade is parallel to the glass, and slide the tip between the liner and the film. You don't "pick" at it, you slide it between the two layers. Like you were trying to cut the film between the liner and film itself, it it was possible.

When your ready to peel the liner, spray some solution on one of the windows or a peel board, STICK the cornor you want to peel....Liner comes right off with your finger nail on the STUCK cornor.. Hope that makes sense

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.
