Does anybody know the brand/type of tape? Searching for "suction tape" online leads to a different product.

Arturo - Antwoord

I suggest "carpet tape", used to join carpet sections together and often used for temporary joins in wood and metal working setups; or maybe Gorilla brand gaffer tape which is very grippy and has lots of reinforceing fiber strands for low stretch, (useing it now to hold the hinges of a laptop together till I get it fixed properly). Both can be found in most hardware/home care stores in USA. Cleanup of adhesive residue maybe a pain, requireing "goo gone" or WD-40 followed by alcohol wipes.
