weatherstripping adhesive - what should I expect?

I got some permatex super weeatherstripping adhesive.

I cleaned the weatherstripping and body, applied a thin coat to both surfaces, waited 10 min then applied.

After a day, I can pull the weatherstripping off with a little more effort than without the adhesive.

Is that's what to expect? Not a permanent bond?

I used old contact cement (the permatex smells similar) and got the same, slight improvement in holding vs. no adhesive.

What would you use? is this the best I'll get?

I do realize too - it's got metal in the weatherstripping. I can likely squeeze the weatherstrip to get it to hold on better?

If this is for the piece you had in other post (you should keep them all together) they are not glued, the force of the metal holds them in place.

You just need to crimp the areas that have been bent out with plyers.
