    My passive monitor won't stick to the bottom of my couch. I have tried heating the glue back up with a hair dryer, but no luck. Does anyone know of a way to attach them that won't deter the bb from using them? Also has anyone found out they have bb by using said monitors. Packtite brand.

    I can confirm we have had clients that have found the fecal on the outer white border of the monitor - when they did not realize the pest was present.

    Are you trying to attach to wood? leather? fabric? Note: that black dust cover on the underside of most furniture is a problem. We advise clients to remove it.

    It is the dust cover that is causing trouble if you can't get the monitor to stick to it and
    on the frame is a great spot for it. If this is not the case and the monitor just wasn't sticky out of the box, email me through the pfh manufacturing.com website. We make the Packtite passive.

    Hi,
    I initially had the problem where the passive monitor wouldn't stick to the dust cover on the bottom of my couch. I put it on and then would hear it fall off. a couple minutes later. I found that if I held it against the dust cover for about a minute it stuck. Now it's been there for about a year. Good luck.

    It was stuck on there for a time, but now it won’t stay on at all. I have another one that I had on my guest room bed. It fell off too. I stuck it between the box spring and mattress. Hope it will work in that position. I thought about double sided tape but don’t want to interfere with the efficiency of the monitor.
