Actually, they can easily be undone. Depending on the size, you can use a
small flat screwdriver, or on the tiny ones a pin. Just insert it in the
"out" side of the cube that holds the "ratchet mechanism" that grips the
teeth on the strip. Pushing the tool inbetween the flap of plastic (
ratchet) and the toothed part of the strip, will pop up the ratchet flap,
and all allow the strip to be undone. If you are concerned about this,
practice on one not yet strangling your finger etc. Once you get the hang of
it, it is really easy to do.
