Non permanent adhesive needed

I have a hand held shower head. It has a holder that attaches to the wall of the shower. I need some recommendations for some non permanent adhesive I can use to stick the holder to the wall of the shower.

Anything non permanent won't likely stick very well. Only thing that comes to mind is DAP Peelnseal.

Or you could put several flat Command Strips side by side, and then use clear silicone to adhere it to the command strips. You would need to put tape over it to hold it there while the silicone cures.

Double sided foam tape is removable. To remove you cut the foam (dental floss works well) between the adhesive sides and scrape or roll the adhesive off the tile. Might not be able to use on drywall without causing damage to the wall. If there is not sufficient area on the clip for enough tape to hold the weight, attach a larger piece of plastic or wood with the clip mounted on it with screws.

Works for me. Yeah, a piece of two faced tape cut in a circle would probably be best. I think two faced carpet seam tape might be wide enough to do it.

Peel off the old sticker with your fingernail and clean any residue with denatured alcohol. Don't use anything oily like paint thinner or your two faced tape won't stick.

Looks to me that the holder is already non permanent.
Looks like a suction cup to me.

That was my initial thought as well. The little brass button to the left could be the "pump" to draw the vacuum. Or maybe the issue is the surface is not smooth enough for a suction cup?

So it loads in Chrome, but still get a blank page in Firefox. Not sure why. If anyone else runs into this, use Chrome to open it.
