Fixing A Clock To The Console

I have this neat little clock that I would like to fix to the console. I don't really want to screw it in place. Is there a 'glue' that would work?

I tried Super Glue but it fell off straight away! Doh!

LOL no, a good velcro pad from Halfords will stick fine as long as you clean the console with meths first.

The other option is a car rear view mirror bonding pad (halfords again).These are nothing like stickyfixers btw-they are about 0.5mm thick and usually black. Make sure the surfaces on the clock and console are SPOTLESS first and it'll last for years.

Right-oh. A quick trip to Halfords is on the cards then.

Double sided number plate sticky fixers stick like sh** to a blanket too - I use them for all sorts of things

Yup that's the trick - make sure it's clean first. Loads of people have said "those sticky pads are useless - my mirror keeps falling off" - a quick clean with meths or similar and they stay on for ever.

The best double sided adhesive thingys I've everused are the 3M pads, called ultrahighbond or something like that. You could do a lot worse than a blob of silicone sealant or better still Sikaflex.
