I ended up putting a small amount of supper glue on the outer edge of the suction cup.

No problem since (I have 3 of them) plus toilet roll holder.

Should be easy to remove if need as only small amount used

Gooday,
You can get ones from Howards Storage, (maybe other places), they have a little Vacuum Pump that you attach to the suction cup, to create a real vacuum. They really work on good flat surfaces, had one as a soap holder in the Shower at home but sadly, the wire soap holder went rusty after a few months.
Cheers,

Bunnings ones are not fit for use. Tried a couple on several surfaces including smooth lamipanel and never get more than a few days before they fall off. AND they rust very quickly.

Tried many and found only way to effectively hold for a reasonable period of time is to smear Vaseline petroleum jelly thinly over suction cup - Initially will hold reasonable weights but the effective hold varies between weeks to months (no indication or warning of failure).

Used a corner one in previous van, couldn't remove it so it stayed.

Put a corner one in current van, just suction, no problem.

$20.00 from the cheap shop.wink

All the suction ones that I have tried in our van's have fallen off fairly quickly. Must have tried half a dozen or so . Either I am not selecting the right one or in principle they are ****e.
