Best iMac screen adhesive (on a roll)
I have a small computer repair shop, and install a lot of SSDs in iMacs. A year or so ago I searched for an alternative to iFixit adhesive strip kits, because they are quite expensive. I ended up buying this:
This went well, until today: a customer called me saying their iMac screen fell off. I had installed the screen just a month ago. It cracked falling out, and of course I’ll be paying for the replacement.
So now I’m looking for an alternative adhesive. Preferably a large roll of the exact adhesive Apple uses, but barring that, a not crazy priced roll of tape that will reliably hold the heavy (and expensive) iMac screens in place. People who open up several iMacs per day - what do you use?
If somebody finds this via Google, I found the original Apple adhesive strips. They’re packaged in bundles of 20, and are even cheaper than the iFixit ones:

The part numbers are:
They can also be found on eBay.

Let’s all take a step back here and look at what we’re typing … screens held together with glue. Apple portrays to be this green company yet they can’t out some screws in the products so people can keep them going for longer… that’s not green it’s greed.

They’re not held together with glue, but with a thin replaceable adhesive film. Suggest doing homework.
