Source for reliable double-sided tape to reinstall display?


I’ve done quite a few hard drive replacements on 2013 and newer iMacs, the ones with the display attached with double-sided tape, but I’ve had several of them fall open due to the tape ‘failing’. What am I doing wrong, and does anyone have a recommendation for a really strong replacement tape option?

What I’ve been buying is the stuff they sell on Amazon, and it gets good reviews, but either I’m not doing something right or it’s just not consistently reliable. FYI, I am careful to remove all the old tape, and carefully press the display on when reinstalling, but do I need to use heat or something?

Many thanks in advance for any tips or advice you can give!!
