Do adhesive labels and/or gaffer tape stick to this rubber?
Asked by: William
Nope. I just tried to stick gaff tape on two different T7 shields. Because of the silicone cover and curved grooves, the tape barely sticks and would not last long. Best I could do was wrap the tape all the way around the drive until the tape sticks to itself. Not sure why they answered yes if they didn't try it.
