Adhesive for attaching shower shelf to slate tile?

Hi everyone,

I have MSI Gauged Slate tile on my shower wall, and I am looking to fasten a hook to the tile to hold a shower organizer for shampoo, etc. Is there an adhesive you recommend that is safe to use to attach to the slate surface?

Thanks

Welcome, Connor.

Probably lots of adhesives out there that would stick to your stone surface, but I'm not sure I'd do that for your application.

This is a cleft face slate?

Hi CX!

Yes, this is a cleft face slate.

I am afraid that many of the adhesives available might even be too strong or rigid and risk marring the face of the tile. Maybe that's silly and I should just be confident in the installation. The accessory hook is chrome or stainless steel if that matters for adhesive selection.

Shelves instead?

Hi, Connor,

Have you considered a corner shelf or two instead of hanging an organizer on the slate tile face There are some on the market that you can install in a retrofit application - if your horizontal grout lines in the corner line up.

Depending upon the quality of the slate, Connor, my concern would be for the adhesive pulling the face off the stone.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the replies. We had previously hung the shower organizer on the adhesive hook that came with a squeegee, similar to the hook in this picture (picture slate instead of marble).

That held for a few days before the weight (unsurprisingly) took the hook off. The hook came with the house, but as far as I can tell it was just a double-sided adhesive pad. It didn't do any damage to the tile that I can see, and if possible I would like to use something that will stick it back up there and hold more weight.
