Hi All,

 

I need to re-attach a plastic mounting for my optical sync cord on my ikelite case. It originally came with a double sided, thin foam tape that held it on, but it's been knocked off, and the pad destroyed in the process.

 

Can I use any old double sided tape, or is there a special marine grade that I should look for? I don't want it to be permanent either, as I'd like to be able to remove it later if I swap housings / camera etc.

 

Thanks

 

Jason
