    You could use something like araldite (a 2 part epoxy)

    "We recommend JB Weld to install one of these beauties. You can find it at a hardware store near you." Found that info in the Ibis store.

    Any 2 part epoxy should do the trick.

    I used some automotive trim adhesive, but that's because I had a tube of it laying around. I've read that you can use JB Weld also.

    I have a nice layer of JB Weld on my frame that has taken the place of the protector as it just won't stay on. Popped off 3 times now.

    JB weld failed to work? Impossible. You're doing it wrong.

    Before you glue anything down; you should have a look at the 3M VHB tape.

    I do believe that it is a good alternative to the two pot epoxy method, as bonding a metal to a flexible plastic/resin surface, often result in the metal popping off/ delaminating. Do note that the tape will add some thickness to overall connection.

    Ok, I'll confess. I used the JB Weld quickset stuff. Seems like it still should hold though. I bought the regular JB recently to help with my cable stop repair and do plan to give it one more try to keep this thing on.

    After losing mine a couple times, I decided to just try tightly wrapping some inner tube around that area a couple times and tightly securing w/ few zip-ties. The zip ties and tube combo protect frame from chain, and if you break a zip tie, easily install another. This has worked pretty well, and seems to make it easier to release chain when backpedaling after chainsuck than with the metal plate.

    Not perfect solution but less annoying than clean, sand, mix glue, stick on, lose plate again, buy another, repeat.

    +1 for the tube. Recycle it's the new in thing.
