Same problem here. I thought I had the opposite problem where I tried to install when it was too cold. Even the industrial strength velcro I bought is peeling from one side (I, too, keep a lot of 'stuff' in them, none of it real light and, yes, I prepped the area first)...... :-neutral:The only problem I had is that I had to replace the velcro that attaches to the door panel. .........
It seems like the velcro I purchased had better adhesive.
I keep a bunch of 'stuff' in them.
I agree with all the posts above. The bag itself is great...fits in the door pocket well and is well made.
The Velcro...not so great. I, like the posters above, followed all the instructions (cleaned the area with soap and water, then plain water, then rubbing alcohol, and let it dry for a half hour or so before placing the Velcro, and the temps were in the high 70's or so) and let the Velcro sit for 24 hours before attaching the bag.
Within 2 days the Velcro had completely detached itself from the door. I didn't have anything heavy in the bag (just the car chargers for my phone and GPS) and I didn't even pull the bag off the Velcro once. The Velcro simply fell off the door.
I tried reattaching the Velcro and this time let it sit for three or four days before attaching the bag, but the same thing has happened again.
Love the bag, disappointed by the Velcro.
Wish I had your luck with the velcro! I'm pretty sure I would use them if I could mount them as they were intended. As it is, it is just another bag...The resurrection of this thread was timely. I have two bags I am taking out. My velcro was fine. In fact it held so well that I may need to clean the adhesive off.
I found I really wasn't using them. I unfortunately have the personality that if I can't see it it ain't there! So stuff in the bags stay in the bag.
