glue slip pad to base of Murata?

Post by Jeffrey Armbruster » Sun Jan 15, 2017 8:19 pm

I just got a little anti-slip pad from SBM. My left thigh angles slightly towards the floor in my chair. I really didn't have a slippage problem but I got the pad anyway. Is there a downside to gluing (???) or taping this pad to the Murata foot itself, so that I don't have to go looking for the pad every time I stand up and forget that it's on my thigh?

Sure, why not? Maybe try some double-sided tape instead of glue, perhaps a small piece to start to see if you actually like having it there before going all out. Can't do any harm, can it?

You actually need not need to glue the whole base. Just paste some on the contact points is much nicer.

Yes, just paste small pieces on contact points.

Don't use cement. It doesn't react well with the Oasis Grip Strip. I managed to get it done, and it works well, but it was difficult and doesn't look great.
