Extending life of guardian sensor

How can I extend the life of my Guardian sensors? I am currently out of sensors and waiting for the pharmacy to deliver the refill. They are holding the refill for a couple of weeks for some reason I can not understand. I have been told there is a way to restart an expired sensor for another period of six days.

Detach sensor from transmitter for about 10 secs, then plug it back in.

Here is a video.

I extend the life of all my G3 sensors as per the above video. However, since I do this every time, I eliminate the use the oval tape over the top of the transmitter. This makes it easier to remove the transmitter without having to cut the oval tape around the transmitter. Instead, I use it to secure the transmitter the second time around.
