What if my PopSocket won't stick?

The PopSocket adhesive is designed to stick to most materials but not all. Try adhering your PopSocket directly to your phone to see whether the sticky gel is working properly -- if it doesn't stick to your phone, the gel might not be working properly. Rinse the base of your PopSocket with water (no soap!), let it air dry for 10 minutes, but don't leave it unattached to a surface for more than about 15 minutes or it might lose its power forever. This will reactivate your gel and get you Popping again! Bear in mind that PopSockets stick best to smooth, hard, flat surfaces but have trouble sticking to waterproof coatings, silicone, leather and highly textured surfaces.
