I have a shell or hard, protective case on my MacBook. Can I use BaseLift without removing the shell?

Last Updated: Jun 01, 2017 12:21PM EDT
BaseLift is specifically made for the aluminum MacBooks, so we haven't tested it on any other materials, such as plastic.  However, the adhesive on the BookArc should stick to any clean, dry, non-porous surface.  

PLEASE NOTE that the BaseLift adhesive may actually stick better to some alternate materials than to the aluminum for which it's designed, so removing BaseLift from these may be challenging, and may damage the case and/or the BaseLift.
