Question Jacuzzi tub and rubber cement?

We've recently installed a fiberglass (i think) jacuzzi tub and the velcro that holds the front panel onto the tub is no longer sticking to the panel.

Can we use Rubber Cement to reattach the velcro? Or is there something else that will work better?

Thanks in advance.

Attaching panel to jacuzzi

Replace the velcro or apply a few dabs of silicone caulk for easy removal.

More info needed...

I don't know why we planned to reattach the same piece of velcro vs. buying new that is still sticky. That makes tons of sense.

About the caulk....do you mean I should attach the door with that or use that to restick the velcro to the panel?

Thanks again.

Velcro

It appears that I may have confused you. I was thinking that if you couldn't find any velcro that a few strategically placed dabs of silicone caulk could substitute for the velcro. You should be able to find the sticky-backed velcro at a sewing or craft store.

Thanks.

No, I think we were saying the same thing...just differently. :-)

Thanks very much for your help.

Talking magnet

Instead of weak velcro, I used severa pieces of magnets and a metal strip for my tub skirt.
You can bond magnets onto the edge of the skirt(evenly spread)
and screw the metal strip onto the mating surface of the tub.
It works great and removal is a snap....
