Our team is looking into using marine velcro to hold on our router so it's easy to swap out for Operation Bonde. The small circles we have of the stuff have adhesive on the back already. The problem is that it's weaker than the connection strength itself, and so they tear off of our router. We'd like to use another, stronger adhesive to secure them, and were wondering if anyone had any suggestions. It needs to connect to a DAP-1522, and unfortunately, I can't find info on the type of plastic they're made of. Any suggestions or other ways we could attach them?

Home Depot or Lowes both have industrial strength Velcro for a decent price. I swear Velcro glue is stronger than duck tape.

Shoe Goo has extremely high adhesion strength, and more importantly very high PEEL STRENGTH.

I build quad roller skates for both indoor and outdoor use with only Shoe Goo holding the plate to a carbon fiber stiffener sheet that is also Shoe Goo'ed to the soles of the shoes/boots. One pair lasted over 12 years with no separation.
We have glued treads back onto our wheels when the staples failed, and they seemed to hold even better than rivets.
