I have the same problem and have yet to find a suitable double sided tape that holds up to the heat. Tried industrial velcro - same problem. If you find one that works, let us know.
I found the 36-LED was a tad too bright everywhere, so I have also installed some 24-LED models - perfect.
These little lights are great.
I think over time the tape fails. I've tried quite a few.
I like glueing them to the Lens. The light is much brighter and the glue lasts a long time. Loctite makes a good one that drys clear.

You can't glue SMD LEDs because the won't breath. Even thought LEDs do product alot less heat the do still produce.
The pads that you can glue, breath underneath.
You can put a small dab on all four corner LEDs
