Removing mat at the completion of each end. “After the last bowl required to be played in each end has been delivered, a player or the marker should lift the mat and place it completely beyond the face of the rear bank”. Often you see players hang the mat on the rear bank with part of the mat against the face of the rear bank. If a bowl or jack hits the mat the bowl or jack is declared dead.

Happy bowling.
