Default Wrap around LEDs

Ok so since it's been hot for the past few days, my wraps are coming loose. What can I use to keep them adhered better and can withstand the heat?

Gorilla glue?

Not sure if it would work but popped into my head.

That crossed my mind but doesn't that glue dry up and crack?

Some of these have a tube around the led's that is loose enough to put a zip-tie through, that can be used to hold them on. You might have to take end caps off and reseal them.

How about using weatherstrip adhesive? It will remain flexible for years.

I used clear adhesive outdoor caulking when mine were coming loose. I taped them down for a day to let it dry. They have been good for over 2 years now.

Use 3m double sided tape. On the new ones I make using Radiantz zflex, they have 3m double tape on the back and i now modify the end caps and put a tie wrap on the inside so they do not come loose like Rcoligan2 suggested

I would not use any permanent kind of fixative like gorilla glue as you could have a lot of trouble if you ever have to remove them. if you have tubes then use a tie wrap and new double sided tape and if they are just a stick on strip then put new 3m double sided tape on them . This stuff is used to put a lot of different parts on cars
