    Hi David,
    I was looking at the Packtite passive monitor and want to put it on my bed today. I have one concern: I want to make sure I put it at the optimal place so I take it I shouldn't use the adhesive on the back of it until I am certain of its location (I was planning to put it up and then maybe post a picture). Can I use something other than the adhesive to attach it to the box spring?
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    If you look through the galleries on FlickR and on my website you will see we have most beds covered with images of where to install so I fail to see why would not be certain of where to install.

    If we had an acceptable alternative adhesive it would be well documented by now.

    This really is not as complex as some people convince themselves they feel it needs to be.

    Hope that helps.

    If I place it wrong, can I remove it and put in the correct spot?

    Hi,

    The adhesive cures and becomes harder when set. This means you can apply and lift a few times for a a short times but if you look at the instructions you should not need to do so.
