I sort of figured that contact cement would be a consensus, and I am familiar with the material and how to use it. I was hoping something more "workable" would show up. I am going to try the self-adhesive stuff, and if it fails, I'll use contact cement.

I'm replacing the pad on one of these Manfrotto plates, so fitting is tricky and getting it a little wonky with the contact cement is a possibility.

Thanks, y'all!
