If you’re a GoPro user, you probably have a whole pile of used GoPro adhesive mounts accumulating in your gear closet.
Well, if you want to re-use them, there is a really easy and cost effective way to get your sticky back.
Scotch makes a line of reusable, double sided adhesive tabs for mounting photos, papers, artwork etc. on walls. The adhesive is surprisingly strong (although not as strong as the original GoPro adhesive mount so be careful) and more than enough to secure a GoPro in most situations.
You can buy a pack of eighteen one inch square adhesive tabs at most retailers that carry office supplies for just a few bucks.
The easiest thing to do is just use a new adhesive tab to stick your old GoPro adhesive mount to whatever surface you want to mount it to (or if you want a more reliable bond, you could scrape off the old adhesive and use a new adhesive tab to replace it).
Another use for these tabs is for mounting your GoPro to surfaces where you don’t necessarily want your mount welded on with the full strength of a new GoPro adhesive mount – painted drywall comes to mind as an example.
These Scotch reusable, double sided adhesive tabs are designed to be removed cleanly so there is less risk of damage to the mounting surface as opposed to a new GoPro adhesive mount which could take paint, loose or weak materials with it when removed.
