Seriously use silicon. (I use it to fix body panels to kit cars and it lasts years and years)
Its easily adjustable.
Anybody who recommends something else hasn,t tried silicon !!!!
But your shout !
As I mentioned in my post I tried silicon on a previous board.......

If your concerned about the alignment put some paper between the protector and the the board until you get one edge lined up. then slide the paper out as you press down the rest of the protector. The contact cement will not stick to the paper.

From what I can see all the EVA pads are stuck on with contact cement in the factory, there must be a good reason for this.

Silicon will bond well but you need to hold the two items together until it dries. If you're tying to glue the protector around a curved area it is almost impossible to hold it down firmly and evenly while drying (some of the protectors are quite stiff). Whereas with contact there is no issue, as soon as you make the bond it's stuck...good and hard.

Thank you to all of you for your input!

I'll go for contact cement. Any recommendations regarding the brand? I'm located in Germany (but could probably get anything via internet).

I use Selleys in Australia. Contact cement is pretty common stuff and been around for ages. You should be able to find a good brand in most hardware stores.
