Unfortunately, these are no longer available . . . it seems that the company has gone out of business.

I'd like to know about...

    I can’t wait to try these. Do you think they could keep cockpit cushions from slipping?

      June — I think it would depend on how smooth the cockpit itself is. They don’t stick well to rough surfaces, so if you have nonskid under the cushions, I’m not sure if they’d help or not.

        Thanks Carolyn. We do have nonskid. I would love to find a solution to the cushions moving around!

    At first I got all excited about this, but then I started wondering, won’t these sticky pads start to collect dust eventually and become usable (dust covering sticky surface?) Perhaps not for things that never move from the place you want them in, but for knives, or electronic gadgets that get picked up and put down again, etc. Do they come with cleaning instructions?

      Yes, as noted in the article, a quick rinse with plain water is all that’s needed. For bigger messes on the pad, use a touch of plain soap. Don’t use soap with moisturizers as they will make the pad less sticky.

        Ahh! Sorry for being a horrible reader. I skim too fast!! And got the auto-reply about your broken wrist. No need to respond to this and so sorry you broke your wrist. How frustrating! Hope you heal fast!

    Would strips of this stuff hold plastic mosquito netting to the underside of an open deck hatch? The velcro and/or snap methods we’ve used are unsatisfactory and ugly.

      Hmm, Dave, interesting use. It would hold, it just might be hard to take the netting off without tearing it — it would depend on how sturdy/delicate it was (the really thin no-see-um netting I’m almost certain would tear). I just did a quick test with a bit of scrap “screen” and it removed okay — but that was after just a few minutes. I know from past experience that the hold gets stronger over time. But you could do it so there are no gaps for the mozzies to get in . . . which would be fantastic.

      Good tips. I would probably ‘hem’ the edges over with clear duct tape as we’ve done before. It keeps the edges of the netting from fraying. Strips of heavy wax paper/plastic could help with storage I imagine. Worth an experiment over a porthole at least.

      I’d probably try it, I just didn’t want to say “sure!”

    thanks for this. so when you use this pad, it is for a temporary use? after you are done using it to hold your knives, pots, etc. can you remove it and store it until you need it again or do you leave it in place? and if you remove it, how would you store it?

  • The Boat Galley
    Posted at 02 October 2013 Reply

    You can remove it. I either put it back in the package it came in or put a piece of waxed paper on both sides. You can also stick it in a plastic bag. They all peel off okay for me but if anything does stick it will come off easily with water or a little soapy water if it’s really stuck.
