Neither does mine. I am guessing they are held on with double sided tape.

The use of Eternabond vs 3M tape is partially aesthetic. Since the roof is quite visible and several forum members, who have done this, found the translucent 3M tape blends satisfactory. I am guessing again that the bright white eternabond would stand out quite a bit more on the newer non-white AFrames.

But, yes, a quick and permanent fix is called for.

I used black 2" Eternabond tape around all the skylights and fan. The black blended in well with the skylight color. Did that as soon as I got it home so I wouldn't have to worry about skylight leaks.
