Hey guys and gals,
I got a Survivor case but the flaps for the speaker and the camera are a PITA to stay open, so I tried to glue some velcro to the back of the flaps to keep them open. Because the rubber is so smooth and soft the glue I tied using didn't really work well and eventually came off.

Anyone have a suggestions to help keep those flaps open or what kind of glue would work well with soft rubber?

thanks

Get a new case. ;)
besides that I really like the case. My girlfriend says I'm an animal and destray everything in my path so this case fits me welll. It's not too heavy and does a good job at protecting my ipad. so far my only critique would be the flap retaining system.

Evostick Serious Glue :) you need to clamp or weight the items for 24 hours after applying the adhesive.

Most likely a shoe glue would be best

I've considered shoe goo, but i would have to score the 2 items to get them to really stick and the case wont score.

That's why I prefere the Otterbox Defender.

Also this thread is on the wrong board.
