What to use to stick magnetic strip to metal shower door?
1 Attachment(s)
I bought a liquid nails and tried it, it didn't work because it was WOOD liquid nails (duh). Would regular liquid nails (I think just the multipupose adhesive) do the trick?

I posted a picture of the stupid thing I did with the wood liquid nails on the shower door if you want a good laugh. It comes off easily enough with a screwdriver.

I also put this on my front door (the bottom piece of my handle was sliding around) at the advice of a painter. It seems to have done the trick, but some of the good is sticking slightly out of the side. I can't really scrape that off without messing up the door paint, any ideas? Its hard to get at in the 90 degree corner...

clean all that off and use 100% silicone

Clean all of that off and use contact adhesive.:) Put it on both surfaces wait fifteen minutes and marry them.:)

Double stick tape will work fine. New doors with the flexible vinyl fillers use it. Get the one without the padding(3M). It's just like scotch tape with 2 very sticky sides.

I tried the silicone just now will post results next time I'm there. Thats not a bad idea, that 3m automotive tape would have worked well also if I put those hooks flat and pressed it in.
