    I have a set of internal type screens and they are forever falling down, I have fitted new ones cleaned the windscreen and still they fall down and then set the alarm off, which the neighbours love

    I have the same problem when I use the internal screens when the van is in storage. On site I use external silver screens....no problems.
    So if anyone can advise on where to buy suckers that work I too would be appreciative.

    Ebay search for 'window suckers' lots of different sorts and sizes. I bought a load last year about one & half inch with thread small plastic nut, stick to glass very well but I can't remember which supplier.

    We have never had one detach & if anything need some force or squeezing to remove! We use with the Milenco internal screen & a shower curtain to keep water off the mirror/sink area both of which are quite light so maybe not suitable for heavier materials. Also need to keep the glass clean & grease free as with any suction products but see that you have done this so perhaps not up to being attached for long periods? Had ours up for 6 days & no problems.

    The suckers I sell are a lot stronger than the ones mentioned earlier in the thread. The ones I sell are not cheap eastern imports and I sell a lot to replace the grey plastic ones, I also do eyelets for adding extra suckers. I will be at Newark, Harrogate, Peterborough and a number of other shows. I also do mail order and Ebay. If you see an item you want from me on ebay please contact me here on Fun and I will give you a Fun discount.
