Acetone or nail polish remover or other nasty smelling solvent will work.

You need to get anything on surface off so the glue sticks to the material and not the soap scum.

Be sure of placement as once it touches you are done.

Follow up with real silicone RTV aa it is what holds glass fish tanks together so it will do well here.

Use finger to smooth bead and force UNDER edges.

Let cure overnight and it should not come off.

Make note in your vehicle log how applied....to remove a chisel slid under and allowed to stand and gentle tapping will slowly release the unit be prying off.

You will thank yourself later when you decide to change it out.

I removed a single 2 reservoir unit and installed 2 -3 reservoir units, (wife uses several different products). I suede the tape and the screws, which were stainless steel wood screws, I also put silicon in holes for extra sealing. Looks great , works great, and no bottles stuff all over shower.

You do not need screws. I love these pumps and have installed a few in my home and rvs.

The instructions on most of them say the double sided tape is only there to hold it in place until the silicone cures. Tape alone eventually always fails.

I had to cut my last one off because I was trading in and believe me, the silicone will weather the zombie apocalypse.

They certainly make a nice product but I prefer the http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000FG...I3L&ref=plSrchwith wire basket between them. One install and look just as good:

Get a tube of clear silicone. Automotive type. I've put these things in my house and 3 motorhomes. Never used the double sided tape. Held them in place with duct tape. Always clean the surfaces with alcohol. Never use screws. Even stainless will corrode and you risk starting a crack in your fiberglass enclosure. These pumps are great and keep the clutter to a minimum.

My wife wants to put some sort of soap / shampoo dispenser in our shower too.

Wasn't giving it much thought. After reading this, maybe I need to hire an architect, structural engineer, and a general contractor to install it......

Seriously, some good points to pay attention too.

Regards

Sorry I messed up my post from my phone. Here is the corrected version:

Simple Human certainly makes a nice product but I prefer the Better Living Aviva Dispenser with with integrated shower basket. Only one thing to install, more functional, and looks just as good.

The normal version is also an Amazon best seller.

PS: The link keeps taking me to Amazon Canada, let me know if you have the same problem.

Seriously, people are really overthinking this. The units being discussed all come with silicone in the box. Just follow the installation instructions.

Funny you post this as Simplehuman has the same dispemser with a shelf in between.

I only discovered this when I looked at a catalogue sent with my product - I would have preferred this myself but alas will live with what we have........
