    I carry a bottle of contact cement for questionable adhesion, the kind you apply to both sides and allow to dry before assembly.

    I don't trust the tape I usually install in some sort of channel like this. If you can. See all those little burn marks on the bottom of the cabinets those were actually from the old 12v halogen bulbs. I replaced them with these used the same wiring just Changed fixtures and driver

    Sorry so I screw these to bottom of cabinets and the tape sticks pretty good to the aluminum I usually wipe them down with some alcohol swabs before and I never had a problem

    This is what I use as well, just yesterday in fact.

    Armacost Lighting has some connections that are very solid.
