No winter here in New York, and the thin Scotch double-stick wasn't
strong enough. But contact cement, as suggested by Stanton, did the job.
Do you have a specific product name for the the plumbers' solvent
adhesive you recommend? Sounds like something worth having...!

You can get a thin double-stick tape at any stationery store, and thick
double-sick tape at hardware stores (used eg for attaching plastic film
to windows for extra insulation, for those of you living places where
If you've already tried silicon adhesive, it will keep anything else

Oh, the general adhesive of choice for laptop cases made of composition
plastics is plumbers solvent adhesive (get the ABS variety).
