Default Door Scratches

The 1995 coupe I recently purchased has a few defects for me to work on. Installing a new emblem on the hood and the rear gas lid helped add a little sparkle to the car. The door handles have a few scratches which detract from its appearance, so I purchased some rubber sticky-backed door step tread from my local Mac's hardware store. I cut it down to 1.25 x 5.5 inches and stuck it on the door handle openings. It will prevent future scratches from happening too, I hope. This is the rubber tread. I had to go to a couple places to find it because most of the places had the tread that is more like black sandpaper and I didn't want that on my door handles. I saw the static cling ones in a couple of Vette parts & accessory catalogs, but was afraid it might come off too easily, so I opted for the sticky tread stuff. See attached picture.

Are you able to remove them and straighten them?
