Default footpads getting loose

Dear all,
I am sailing a EVO 2005 and my footpads are getting loose. Is there somebody who can tell me what kind of glue I need to use to fix it? I tried some kit on a small part but it didn't do nothing.
Hope to hear from you, Huub

Use Evo stick impact adhesive or any other impact adhesive. Most hardware shops sell it. Place on both surfaces, wait the recommended time then press together and it will never come apart.

Contact cement is the classic product for the job. However, before applying any fresh cement, you need to remove any old contact adhesive from both surfaces. Also, it's a good idea to sand both the board and the pads to ensure good adhesion. If you find any non-slip texture on the board in the area under the pad, it's wise to remove it. Finally, you apply the contact cement to both the board and pad and let both dry before placing the pad in place.
