Here is my best explanation:

'barely taken off' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'perhaps it's' is the wordplay.
'perhaps' becomes 'k' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'it's' becomes 'it' (I've seen this in other clues).
'k'+'it'='KIT'
