    Docking stations seems to be rather expensive, don't they?

For example, if you put the pad under the laptop drive area, remove the actual drive so you can press down from the same piece of plastic.

    If you want them in the centre, then peel and stick to object A. Put the other side snapped all the way in, and then peel the other pad. Then shove it down to wherever and leave it alone for a while.

    The glue used is pretty strong. Now in a car crash it will fail, I can guarentee it. But for driving no problems.

    Before I went CarPC I was the ghetto nerd with the portable dvd player stuck to my dash with 1 strip of this stuff (cut in half, so 1 stick). It never fell off. To get it off, I had to put my fingers around the dvd player, sit in the seat and use my legs to press against the dash. Of course the glue then gave with a slurp sort of sound, but the plastic sphere area itself was still together.

    I use this stuff for everything now that needs light/medium securing. Oh, and the glue leaves almost no residue coming off. One wipe with the clorox pads and back to shiny new.
    Do you got a picturelink of this stuff that shows how it works?

    I got mine for $31 shipped to me off ebay and I have audio, video, wireless keyboard and mouse, power, usb hub, and bluetooth all tied into the docking station so I can pull out the laptop easily to use at a customers office and then pop it back in the truck and latch it down for a mobile office/sound system. I think it was the smartest thing I have done in a long time....
