I've advertised that each 3 inch by 1/2 inch sticker can hold 1/2 pound of weight. I was wrong. They are much stronger than that. A LOT stronger and even I'm amazed!

Today's tests below will show "one" Aquarium Background Tape™ sticker holding up three hard plastic cutting boards weighing a total of 3.72 pounds and counting!

A friend recently asked just how strong my Aquarium Background Tape™ really is. Not having tested them enough with some serious weight on them I wasn't sure just how much weight each sticker could hold. Well this morning I did just that, and the results shocked even me! These tests are ongoing and I will update this post as the tests progress even further but here are some of the amazing results so far.

I had these three hard plastic cutting boards so I thought they could be a solid test (pun intended). As you will see below the larger board weighed 1.86 pounds and the two smaller ones each weighed 0.93 pounds.

I placed one 3" by 1/2" sticker on the back top of the largest cutting board. It holds this 1.86 pound board with no problem at all. Just to be clear. These boards are NOT resting on the rim as you will see on the bottom photo. This larger board is simply attached to the glass itself.

I then placed one sticker on the back of one of the smaller cutting boards and attached it to the larger board. So, the one sticker on the larger board is now holding up 2.79 pounds, again with no problem!

I attached the second smaller cutting board with one sticker to the first smaller cutting board. The first sticker on the larger board is now holding up a total of 3.72 pounds! I wish I had more boards or something else to attach to these as I'm sure it can hold even more weight!

 As you will see on this next picture, these three cutting boards are not resting on the rim and are being held up with one Aquarium Background Tape™ sticker!

After holding for an entire day I think it's safe to say these little Aquarium Background Tape™ stickers are mighty! Today I need to decide what I want to do with this 20-gallon long empty tank!
 
Since today is New Years Eve, I wish each one of you the very best for 2024!
