Hi Bob,

Have you tried putting a bit of 'spit' behind them before sticking them

I had a problem with a couple of stickers supplied, so i bought (i think it was in tescos) an assorted size pack of suckers with hooks attached, for about 99p, they work great and also work on the outside on sill of the van for hooking over a small groundsheet to act as a small privacy curtain (and stops drafts and small furry animals from getting in) between the wheelbase when the awning is attached.

regards,

eddy

Too many to spit on. A quick wipe to all those on one sheet with the wrung-out washing up sponge works wonders.

I'm of the lick and spit school, but i might be tempted to re-enroll to the washing-up sponge class

Fantastic idea Eddy, lets see it please. We have had a few visitors over the last year so hope this will sort it out

For those with weak or limited spit, a smear of Fairy washing up liquid works very well (there are other brands that may also be suitable) Mad

On a related note, I noticed that my suckers were leaving little circles on the windscreen. I've also read that thieves look for little circles on the windscreen for evidence that a satnav is used and probably hidden in the glove box.

Needless to say I've now cleaned my windows!

Never thought of that. Good thinking

That's a lot of satnavs stuck all over the place in a Kombi!

lick and stick for me !!! had some little helpers pull them off and they have come through the holes on two of them. pain to get back through which i havent succeeded yet in doing!!! internal stickers also stop the suction so beware when sticking them on the inside!!!
