Mounting Tacktick Display

I'm installing a Tacktick on the bulk head. Since it's 100% wireless, would I be able to use 3M 5200 to adhere the mounting plate? I would prefer not to drill.

Thanks

Re: Mounting Tacktick Display

If you use 5200, you will never be able to remove it. I would consider a different adhesive, but that is me.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Mounting Tacktick Display

I would prefer screws over 5200 anytime. I don't let 5200 anywhere near my boat.

If you want to adhere instead of screw, then maybe 4200.

Re: Mounting Tacktick Display

Good point on not wanting it to bounce around in the cockpit. I guess screws would be the safe way to go. Just need to pick the mounting spot carefully.

Thanks

Re: Mounting Tacktick Display

I'm in agreement with the sentiments above. 5200 can be more permanent than screws. Have you thought of VHB? (Commercial double sided sticky tape from 3M) They use it to attach glazing to port light frames among thousands of other surprising applications. It can, with a little effort, be removed.

Re: Mounting Tacktick Display

We mounted our Tacktick instruments on velcro tapes stuck to the cockpit/bulkhead and the backs of the displays. We've had no problems with them getting loose in as much as 40 knots of wind or in the rough & tumble of 'round the bouys racing, but can easily store them below if we're worried about overnight disappearances. K.I.S.S.

Re: Mounting Tacktick Display

Thanks for all the suggestions. I ended up using Velcro and it's holding strong.
