An S hook to the rescue!
After 30 years of confronting this issue I’ve found the best solution: remove excess epoxy from the cover by rolling it on cardboard or scrap wood, then hang the frame and cover from an S hook. The hook should be connected at the turn in the frame (as shown in photo) and allowed to cure that way. With the frame hung this way, excess epoxy runs to the open end of the cover. Once the epoxy has cured, remove the cover from the frame by simply pulling on the cover. With this approach, you should be able to reuse a frame many times.—From Saving Your 801 Roller Frame by J.R.
