I used the self adhesive heavy duty velcro and stapled it about every 6". So far works great. I leave them attached when traveling and have had no problems.

What do you mean you stapled it? Mine stays attached to the PUGS just fine because I "sewed" it on (using the term sew loosely). The place it is not staying attached is against the metal flat piece on the camper. I am wondering if it has been too warm or I haven't given it enough time to set because it just pulls right off leaving the goo behind. It isn't even lasting long enough for me to worry about prying the two velcro pieces apart...just drops off the camper.

Not sure what "metal piece" that you are trying to glue to. Is it the metal trim/seal around the bottom of the roof? I installed mine behind and above the metal trim, there is wood there that the metal is mounted to.

Right in front of the tent attachment point in the bunk openings there is a flat "ceiling"...that is where I have been trying to attach them. I think it is metal...it is black.

RooVader, I believe that cabranch47 has a popup, so they are able to staple the velcro up underneath the top. Wish we could though.....

Hi. I spoke to Bob at Pop Up Gizmos the other day about the Velcro. He suggested a thin bead across the top with Gorilla glue and then put the Velcro on top. He strongly suggested not screwing or stapling anything. Ordering my Gizmos this week. Good luck!

Hi Roo, My bad, I did not realize that you did not have a popup when I responded about stapling to the roof. Hope you solve your problem as I am a believer in the Gizmos.

No worries at all! I am a big believer as well...even if I never get my velcro working I will continue to use them. They make a huge difference and I am always shocked that I have never seen another popup or hybrid using them besides me.

I love mine. I have the high wind ones with the bungee cords that wrap around. I didn't use Velcro, I tuck the top edge into the rain gutter. My PUGs are left over from my popup, they are bigger than my bunks but it works.

Hot glue and gun would do the trick
