Never bend your torc when taking it on and off. You may need to do it the first time but take great care. Flexing of the metal can cause a lot of stress and your torc may break.
When you bend metal it tends to harden and become brittle. You may have experienced this first hand if you have ever wanted to break off a piece of wire for something and you did this by bending it back and forth until it broke. The same thing can happen to a torc.
Find the fleshy part at the front of your wrist. It is a few centimeters down between your bones. Place one end of the torc there and push it into your flesh as you slip/roll the rest of the torc around the back of your wrist. Simply repeat this to remove.
It is not exactly a comfortable procedure but it will prolong the life of your torc.
