The grip material on my BG-E11 is starting to 'fail' again... The first time I sent to Canon and they sent me a brand new grip versus just fixing the material itself. The replacement is starting to give way at the same points. It's not really that bad yet and can probably be glued easily, but what is best to do with with? I heard gorilla super glue may be best?

The 5D3 is also starting to peel by the shutter button. Not sure why I am having bad luck with the grip these days!

So I am looking to see what best adhesive options I have for those who have maybe done this before.

There was a similar thread a few weeks back but related to a body peeling. Many recommended double backed tape which is the original product. Personally I would suggest one of the Loctite or 3M products available in auto stores for attaching rubber seals to metal car surfaces. You need a product that when cured retains some flexibility. Gorilla glue hardens rigid and in time will crack.

Added info: what I'm referring to is called 3M Super Weatherstrip and Gasket Adhesive, about $4 at an auto store. It is black. Just use care when applying (avoid excess) and hold in place with duct tape or electrical tape until cured. This is the 3M description.

"A strong, flexible, rubbery adhesive that can withstand vibration, oil, grease, and extreme temperature variations. It can be used to bond weatherstripping to car doors, trunks, T-tops, moon roofs and sun roofs. Excellent adhesive for holding paper, cork, or rubber gaskets in place during installation."

I used contact cement on a peeling 1d Mk3 about a year ago. Only took a minute and it's still stuck. (The super-stick double-sided tape I tried first lasted all of 2 days.)

I'd use silicon to fix it. It can be amazing strong.

Thanks! At this time it is just slight edges that are starting so I just want to get something in there to prevent it from peeling farther.
