3M Tape LED Light Strips: Under Office Desk Lighting Issue (Picture)


In my office I am trying to setup some lighting underneath my desk. I am using some double sided 3M Tape LED Light Strips. I followed everything according to the manufacturers guidelines:

-clean area with 50/50 solution of water and alcohol before you apply
-once applied press on it providing 15psi of pressure

Despite my best efforts these things never seem to stay, and continue to peel off once placed. Do you guys have any ideas for some sort of material or alternative way to secure these LED light strips? Unfortunately any sort of solution that would involve drilling holes will not work. The adhesive just doesn't seem to be as strong as I need it to be. I would also prefer a method that isn't permanent e.g. no GE clear silicon caulk, staple gun or 3M contact cement. Maybe some sort of strong tape?

I would provide a picture of the situation, but it says I do not have permission to post links / pictures.


Many thanks in advance
