Default Supercup mount wont stick!

Bought the mount a few months back to upgrade from the stock suction cups. But for the past few weeks it hasn't been sticking to my windshield!

Is there a way to make it stick again? Lately I've been just laying it on my dash so it is looking through the windshield underneath my wipers because if I can get it to stick it falls off my windshield 30 seconds later and I don't want to damage the detector itself!

Note: I live in Canada so the windshield does switch temperatures often but I always keep both the mount and windshield clean

Are you talking about the sticky cup? If so you can run it under water to clean it which you might be doing already but don't use a towel to dry it. Another thing is to just make sure you push the mount against window when you push the black flap inward to lock it in. If anyone else knows I'm sure they'll chime in.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Edited to remove invalid instructions.

So we're back to just running it under some water looks like the best way to clean it (as far as I know)

Post you linked says to boil it but Larry says you should not need to boil it.

If the above does not work then send me a private message with your name and address.

Thank you

Just to be clear, I didn't write that someone should boil the Sticky Cup itself:

TBNTX just to be clear approximately how long should the water be removed from the heat? Maybe that depends on the size of the pot? Or maybe better question is what should the temperature be before you put the sticky cup in it? Maybe it could just be hot tap water? Just trying to get answers so I can better help if someone else asks the question.

Thank you for your answers and thanks for the work and time you put in here on the forum.

Thanks,

Chris
