Need velcro glue advice.??

My sunvisor off my GPS is coming off again. This time I took it off all the way. The problem is the glue and velcro. I fixed the problem once with L 'cheap'o glue, which held since June. I need some heavy duty glue with new velcro. Any links or any advice, tips and know you guys got the answers. Thanks.

I love dual lock, it's like a super velcro and can be had at Radio Shack. Are you cleaning up the pieces real good before installation?

+1 on the dual lock, it has VHB (very high bond) adhesive as standard. The other really good thing is that it still works when wet, and is highly UV and heat resistant. Good for about 1,000 separations before it is toast.

If you decide to re-glue instead clean the mounting point with alcohol, and then spray a light mist of Super 90 adhesive on the back of new velcro. Let it tack for about 30 seconds then apply firm pressure. Give it an hour to cure and you're good to go. The only problem with going this route is the Super 90 is super expensive - but you'll have a lifetime supply!

If you can't find the dual lock locally let me know and I'll put a piece in the mail - I've got a roll of it in the shop.

Dual lock.

Dual locking it is. I had moved from my old GPS and had to glue new strips on my new unit. I probably did not clean it well. While enroute to Alaska it started to come off and did a "on the side of the road glue job", with (don't laugh) JB weld glue. All I could find.

If you're looking for glue that won't come off, use 3M yellow weatherstrip adhesive. Make sure you get the real 3M product and not Permatex or other brand. The stuff goes on like rubber cement and dries to a plastic-like consistency. I've used it to glue tips on pool cues and it won't let go if you prep the surface well. Of course it's pretty permanent stuff so don't use it where you might want to take it back off. The only thing I've found stronger is epoxy.

+1 on the dual lock. I swear by that stuff and use it instead of velcro wherever I can get away with it. The heavy duty dual lock comes with some stout adhesive on it too. I use the light duty where I can and it holds good but not to hard to peel off and replace or move if needed.

the best glue in the world

I keep a tube of windshield urethane around for glueing whatever I need to never come apart again. 100% UV resistant. Will bond to even smooth surfaces like glass. Very flexible. It is used to hold your windshield into your car and has to be cut with a knife. About $14 for a caulk tube. The main drawbacks are, it only comes in black and, if it gets on your fingers, you need to get it off before it sets or it will have to wear off. A box of disposable gloves sits next to the tube to remind me to put them on first. My nickname for it is "sticky sh_t".
