CheckYourLights said:I've never herd of Dual lock tape. It might be a little different but at glance it looks like Velcro to me. (Maybe dual lock tape is the generic term for the name brand Velcro?), but i have bought some at both my local hardware and auto part store to mount the GPS antenna of my GS8000 among other things.
I have my Mini 0801 base attached to the windshield and using my fingers I can't get enough grip on the base to separate it from the tape on the windshield. I'll have to use a screwdriver to pry it off. The dashcam doesn't wiggle at all. I'll have to wait until summer to see if the adhesive holds up to summer temps.
...........snip......... can be surprisingly difficult at times to get the two locked pieces of tape apart if you just want to take your camera out of the vehicle. I nearly broke a mount once trying just to leverage it off without a tool. Fieldofview's post is a little vague but this was my perception of what he was talking about since I had experienced it myself. So my suggestion of using a putty knife in this instance was meant to suggest that the putty knife would be a safer method of getting the two separate pieces of dual lock tape apart without damaging the tape than using a screw driver. Dental floss wouldn't work for this..........snip........
One way to separate them w/o destroying the adhesion might be to extend the part of the tape that adheres to the mount past the point of attachment. ....I'll try to better explain this...
Say that the mount has a 1 inch sq. base. Normally u would have a 1 inch pad of lock tape on the mount & the same size on the window or dash, etc. But let's put a 1 1/2 inch tape on the mount & not remove the thin paper that normally covers the glue (or remove the glue) on the extra 1/2 inch that extends past the mount.....u could then grab that part to un-peel the 2 parts.
OTOH...since I've never done this, this could be one of those ideas that sounds good in theory, but sucks in actual practice.
