Yes, I agree its what you do to remove it. But heating up the adhesive and the surface together will help them bond faster then putting it on a cold board. Once you heat them then let it get cold and they will have a better hold of each other.



edit. Similar to tinting windows. Using a heat gun to cure the adhesive

Well, it really depends on the adhesive used. My understanding is that most 'stick on things' work by bonding not by curing. Especially true for re-usable items like camera mounts, stomp pads, etc.
Heat actually softens the bond, so it is used to remove such items or prep them for application (e.g., before re-applying a camera mount in a different location).

Anyway, the OP is already on the hill (or on the way there), so this is academic by now.
