Adhesive that will stick to the back of duct tape?

Adhesive that will stick to the back of duct tape?

Adhesive that will stick to the back of duct tape?

(OP)
I want to glue something to the "back" or non-adhesive side of duct tape. Gorilla tape brand specifically. I tried silicone caulk and Gorilla glue already, but they just fall off once they set up. Before I spend a bunch of money on glues that will not work does anyone have a definitive answer. BTW, Google is very unhelpful on this, any combination of keywords I try just talks about the sticky side of the tape, which is not what I am looking for.

RE: Adhesive that will stick to the back of duct tape?

You are going to have a problem with this, because the back side of the tape has a release on it, to prevent the sticky side from sticking to it, when the tape is rolled up.
B.E.

You are judged not by what you know, but by what you can do.

Good point, I was thinking something like that. Maybe some kind of solvent can be used to prep the tape for adhesive?
