An S hook to the rescue!

How to save a roller frame
Hanging the roller frame from an S hook makes it easier to remove the roller cover after the epoxy has cured.

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. Watson, Epoxyworks #28

How to save your Roller Frame

When you’ve completed a coating task what next? The roller frame is reusable. But if you leave it resting in the pan while the residual epoxy cures, you‘ll probably ruin both the reusable pan and the frame. If you lay the roller and frame on a workbench, it will be stuck there the next day.

Setting the roller on a piece of plastic will bring you closer to success but in any instance where the roller frame rests on a surface while the epoxy cures, the cover will accumulate epoxy where it touches the surface. This accumulated epoxy collects around the plastic roller ends, then cures. Attempts to remove epoxied roller covers may break the frame. Cutting the cover off with a saw is tedious and may damage both the frame and your saw.

Removing the cover before the epoxy cures is an obvious solution, but this can be difficult because wet epoxy is slippery.
