And when you’re ready to detach your device, just pull it off the Grippy Pad with ease and you’re ready to go. No sticky or gummy residue ever left behind. Very smart!
The Grippy Pad is available in four different colours; Grey, Black, Clear and Red. The Grippy Pad is impervious to water, high temperatures and sunlight and it will work virtually anywhere. The pad never needs replenishing of any kind, and when the stickiness begins to fade, simply wipe the Grippy Pad with a damp cloth and the sticky grabbing power is good as new.
