- Looks good, performs badly Review by HughMac
This product is a great idea, but despite meticulous preparation of the GRP surface including fine sanding, they did not adhere properly.
I tried a second time, duck taping them in position to ensure they were fully in contact with the GRP, but on removing the tape some days later, they started lifting just as before.

- Quaily product let down by poor adhesive properties Review by Mike
These pads look high quality and so they should be at the high cost per item. Unfortunately having followed the maker's instructions precisely they did not stick well on my smooth fibreglass coachroof. Within 2 days each of the four that I applied had several areas of pealing off. One had completely pulled itself off a very gentle curve of deck even though I had applied exactly the pre-bend detailed in the instructions. The manufacturers emphasise that if the pad starts to peal off if must be removed immediately to avoid injury to the user. Thus all four of mine have now been discarded without them ever having a chance to be used.
