Pulling up Laminate Transition strip

I wasn't sure if my question should belong in the flooring forum , but since the question involves my new laminate floor that I installed with the help of this awesome forum, I decided it was my best option.I need to pull up a transition strip on my laminate floor. The laminate transition strip was glued down to the concrete slab with liquid nail. Any suggestions on the best way to pull up this strip without destroying it ?

I'm not sure you can. If you glued it to the floor with no track, I REALLY don't think you can. Any time I've tried it, it hasn't been good. If the track was glued down and then the transition piece installed, you may pull it off, but I've never had much luck with it. Removal tears up the part that snaps into the track and then it won't snap back in. If you can get it up without tearing up the part that shows, I suppose you could glue it back down again.

No saving it. It will come up in pieces.

If the flooring is removed, you might get under it with a razorblade to cut the bond, but that is doubtful.
