Best glue for non-leather tips - 10-28-2019, 09:49 AM

I love my white diamond ultra tips. Problem is they pop off. This may just be my experience, but I need to know if there is a "best" glue for WDUs?

I use Loctite super glue gel, is the liquid supposed to be better?

I used the gel before, and it worked fine. Reading up on super glue, to make the gel they are adding additives to make that consistency. I like the thought of less additives. Also, the shelf life on the professional seems (in my opinion, no data to back this up) to be longer. The professional takes a bit to get used to as it's runny vs the gel. All I can say is it works great for me, and I won't be switching unless something changes with this formula.

For G-10 and other materials,I've been getting 100% results with the JB Weld SuperWeld CA glue.

I've also had good results with the Rearview Mirror Adhesive from Loctite too. Tommy D.
