The white surface you see actually has
thousands of tiny suction cups on it.

showering at a hotel
during a recent RoadTrip
(yes, I know...too much information
<grin>), I was thinking about our Device Adapter for
placing devices on our Magic Arm
and SlantBoard and Auggie Arm. For
placing smaller items ("placing" means attaching a switch/device
temporarily, but firmly), I've always wanted something like Velcro but *not* Velcro.
In moving around on the bath mat in the shower, I thought it was cool
that as I pressed on the mat, the suction cups on the bottom
'gripped'. Hmmm....why not have lots of *smaller* suction cups
within some material that could be affixed to switches and stuff?
So I searched the Net and I found it! I have to get it from
overseas but it's exactly what I was looking for. It's thin,
about the thickness of double side picture mouting tape. On one
side is a permanent self-adhesive. The other side consists of
thousands of very small suction cups (you can't see 'em, but you wish
you *could*). We used it to place our CD
Switch Kit at our Make-n-Take table at Closing The Gap and ATIA
events recently, and people *loved* Stick & Suck.
sheet consists of two 2
1/4" disks and one 3 1/4" disk. I use the small ones for Buddy
Button (JellyBean) switches, and
the larger ones for Big Buddy (Big Red/Big Mac) switches.
(When you get it, the side that has "Peel" on it is the 'Suck' side.
I have also used the larger disk for our SAM-Joystick, and even BigKeys! I've even tried it on
AAC devices (like our Auggies) when
they don't need to be angled more than 30 degrees.
Once in awhile, you'll need to clean the suction pads by simply
sticking/peeling wide cellophane packing tape to its surface.
