3M Tape Alternative?

Post by The Cheese Biscuit » Sat May 11, 2019 8:29 pm

I don't have any of this tape handy, but I do have several different velcro strips and hot glue (and regular crazy glue).

Are any of these decent alternatives to the VHB tape used in the build (or is anything else)?

I feel velcro would be too thick. Hot glue should work because we all know that wermy would take that route in a heartbeat :D

Careful with the hot glue. The screen back is very thin in spots and it wouldn't take much for hot glue to melt / warp it. If you need an alternative pick up Scotch double sided tape but know that you may have to reapply it every so often. It works but doesn't hold as tight as VHB.
