Default Remi Blinds Magnetic Strips

HI. I have factory installed Remi blinds in my 2018 Unity CB. I noticed that on the side windows that the magnetic strips at the ends are getting loose (the magnetic strips are there to hold the blinds when extended. Anyone have this problem or can suggest how to securely reattach the magnetic strips? They do go back on but obviously aren't sticking as well and can pull off again.

This has been discussed in other threads. Happened to me and lots of other people.
Somebody reported success with Gorilla Glue. I plan to try epoxying on a few small neodymium magnets when I get around to it. In the mean time, I use a large paper binding clip on the handles.

Fixed all of mine with Gorilla Glue. Scraped the old adhesive off, applied gorilla glue to strips, let it get tacky then reinstalled the strips. No more problems in many uses.

3M makes an Adhesion Promoter for their double-faced tapes that you wipe down the surfaces with before adhering the strips. Wipe down the channels - not the tape - and restick. But, honestly, Gorilla Glue is cheaper, unless you can find those pre-filled 3M pads. A little goes a long way.
