    alternative to no more nails

    Hey all

    Anyone recommend anything stronger than no more nails? Trying to stick a shoe rack which has a plastic frame to a wooden door. Don't want to use nails but wanted to just glue it on so to speak. Rack takes about 15 pair of shoes so product needs to be pretty strong.

    be careful as what can happen is the surface of the door comes off where you stick things as most doors are only like a ply stuck over a frame - sounds like loaded it will be very heavy - better getting one of those over the door top hangers.
    No more nails will stick it just as well as anything else depending on how much of the frame of the rack can be stuck, but you will do more damage trying to remove it if you change your mind - better a couple of screws in the right place that can be filled later if necessary

    Sellotape Sticky Fixers Permanent . Double sided pads ,come in a pack of 56 - very strong each one is about 2cm x 1cm ,you'll probably need 6 or 8 for your rack and plenty left to hang pictures etc . Cant remember what I paid -maybe £2 or £3 from Wilko .

    But that enough to hold 15 pairs of shoes?

    Would the plastic frame be strong enough to hold 15 pairs of shoes while suspended?

    Does the frame have any mounting points?

    I posted" sticks like ****". screwfix and other diy outlets stock this(post did,nt appear?)

    2nd's 'sticks like #!%&' though think they just call it 'sticks like', holds everything.

    Yeah it's strong enough for that. The rack itself is strong. Just when it's suspended the adhesive needs to hold. The rack don't fall apart due to the weight of the shoes

    Thanks for update,used it years ago on skirtings and it worked a treat.

    Gripfill , it's what the trade use.
    Use it to stick skirting on, stick windows in. I've even hung shelves with it.
    It does stink for a bit but as its got nasty chemicals it goes off real quick.

    Considering I have no idea how this suspended shoe rack is designed we will have less idea than the op who owns it.
    If it's got a fair amount of surface area (maybe 10+sq") I don't see why not.
    I've used it to glue plastering corners to a wall and put 22 VHS on them. been up there for 8+ years.

    No idea how to post pic of said rack via the app... Anyone help?

    3M VHB tape...make sure the bond is good for 12 hours before putting load on and both surface ultra clean for a proper adhesion.
