This tape was used for a lot of applications. It's as must have a thing as duct tape. (1) Originally selected it for keeping the alarm magnet fixed onto a sliding door frame that faces the sun. It' was a simple but maddening problem because the aluminum frame opposes adhesives. -Tried every other kind of tape, superglue, epoxy, hot glue and it just fell off. The alarm would blare so often I could never set it.
The indoor version of the double sided tape would melt and then fall after a week in the Central FL summer. Under the premise that its-possible-that-it-could-exist searched for a theoretical outdoor version. Found it and the magnet has been up for 2 years straight and still going. Yay!
(2) Later used this for a mailbox project involving the mounting of black background letters on a new, black post office box. The box is out in front unobstructed so it gets dangerously hot as it receives light 100% of the day. This is the kind of sun that burst two of my heavy duty water hoses. It's been 2 years and the letters are still securely fixed.
*** Careful in applying it because it's VERY strong. When putting on the metal address numbers I thought about moving them to the right a bit. It was so stuck on that removal seemed difficult with a little bit of a bad idea flavor -so plan ahead and rehearse the application plan.
I plan to mount an outdoor junction box for mp3 jack and outdoor amplifier in the porch. If the mounts on the outdoor speakers give me trouble, I will use this tape too!
As a chemist I'm astonished how well the adhesive chemistry works in the REAL WORLD. It holds 5 lbs. To think there's a 10 pound version!

Using it to keep a front porch outdoor carpet from blowing up in strong winds. Tape seems to adhere well to concrete floor, but not so tightly to back of woven carpet, without some weight on the top. So far so good, but too early to tell for sure.
May need to double or triple the width of the tape, especially at 2 corners of the carpet that are closest to the front edge of the porch.
