/ Would you trust these on a wall?
They're on ebay.. made by these guys http://www.tsunholds.com/
Interesting idea. Worth remembering that bolts are glued into place too and we accept that as the norm.
I wouldn't worry about the glue breaking, the plywood would probably go first. They are quite low profile so the force on them will actually be relatively small, you won't be levering them off the wall :-)
I wouldn't fancy them as they you can't remove them to clean them or reset the wall.
Loads of glue area and loaded from the center of the disk so not the worst-case edge peeling load... Yeah, assuming the glue is adequate (easy) and they're on good flat wood I wouldn't worry about them. Simple clever stuff :)
You can get applique armour kits for vehicles and helicopters - the hexagonal armour tiles are held on with velcro, which in turn is stuck on. You need a lever to get the tile off again, but that just separates the velcro
If it's the same glue as my stick on hooks behind the bathroom door then definitely NOT! Unless you want to finish up as an ungainly lump on the floor like my towel.
