    Ok, I admit it, I have tried it. The thick heavy 3M stuff they sell at the
    office supply store sucks. However, the white foam stuff they sell for
    2/99¢ at the 99¢ Store rocks. I actually used it the first time in a 99¢
    store. I needed to mount a motion sensor on a steel pole just below the
    ceiling tile. After breaking three drill bits I bought a roll of their
    sticky foam tape and slapped it on there. That was five years ago, and its
    still there.

    I also like it for temp mounting some devices in tight spaces to hold it in
    place until I can shoot a screw in it. I have yet to mount a panel with it
    though. LOL.

    There's nothing wrong with using double stick tape. But I like to add a bead
    of clear silicone just in case.

    From there it's a slippery slope to mounting stuff with duct tape...

    WHATS WRONG WITH DUCT TAPE? LOL.

    Actually I was referring to things like using the sticky tape to hold the
    snap base for a wireless transmitter in the gap between a window blind and
    the window so I can shoot a screw in it. Not temp mounting like for a week.
    LOL. Some of the transmitters used to come with little pieces of sticky
    tape.

    Clean the surfaces with isopropyl alcohol first and it'll stick forever and
    a day.

    The best I've ever seen was the stuff from Moose, I think the part number
    was DST-100. It came in a blue box, sheets of pre-cut soft foam stickiest.
    Once you stuck it to something, the only way to get it off was to scrape it
    off. I swear you could stick a piece of bacon to a greased pole with that
    stuff. I still have a box somewhere....

  9. I'm telling ya it's a disease, but it beats using Velcro to mount a
    panel (-cough- Pinnacle), or the motion placed on a shelf so the client
    could move it to different rooms (ADT)
    It's like my sending signals from that infamous account # FFFF :)

    A buddy of mine gave me 10 feet of this super sticky grey rubbery
    double-sided stuff they use on cars. The stuff is unbelievable. I "think"
    its used to stick body moulding on. Man this stuff is unreal.

    I think you'ld be able to chew it once and then you'ld be "drinking"
    your dinner for the next month or so until the glue dissolved enough for
    you to open your mouth again...

    Hahahaha, good point! At least all your food would have the taste of
    bacon for a while...

    Maybe some double-sided tape would improve the flavor? Especially if
    it's soaked up some bacon grease...

    This type of tape would be the right way to stick Bass to Brazil!
    The end justifies the means.

    There is a 3M double sided foam tape that is "super strength" or "extra
    sticky" - I forget exactly. It's the one with the red wax paper,
    though. This stuff is like glue. The ultimate testament to it's
    strength are my glass break detectors which are fixed to ceilings and
    haven't budged in 2.5 years.
