Gripping Stuff! 1 "I just don't get it!" Mr Carter 09 February 2018 Thought this would be a really innovative way of displaying Christmas cards. However the sticky back adheres well to the door frame but the red starred side is just not sticky at all and isn't able to hold anything! Have resorted to using sticky tape to hold cards onto the tape which defeats the object! Am I being dim here? Do you have to peel off a film on the starred side to make tacky? Tried but doesn't look like it. Product not fit for purpose! A note from the team We're sorry the gripping stuff didn't meet with your expectations and trust you've been able to get the matter resolved - following our offer of help.
