Feather I assume you are using the 3M exterior double sided tape. The grey stuff with the red backing. This is in quite a different league to the ordinary white double sided foam tape. I reckon you would have a hard job separating two supplies stuck together with the exterior stuff.

I'm sure the exterior stuff would be stronger but I want to be able to take them apart without too much trouble. I still have to use a screwdriver and/or razor blade on the white interior stuff. In addition, I have a set I put together several years ago that live in the trunk of my car and they are fine. If I left them in the front yard for a few months it might be a different story.

mine came apart from handling nothing Ferthermerchent did wrong
to get it in and out of my field box i have hold it by one side so all the weight is on the tap
and yea its humid here in the summer
but a bit of duct tape fixed the issue so all is well

Clear packing tape would also work well and you could still see the FeathermerchantRC label.

Feathermerchant, I hope I'm not sounding like a pest.
Can a on/off switch be put on the power supplies?

Thank you very much.
This is what I got, it has a 10 foot cord, now, no need for a
extension cord, one less plug in to worry about.

That does not look like a "cheap" power strip to me��
And yes, power strips do have Amp ratings!

It was 15 bucks, and it is rated at 15 amps.
Very heavy duty unit.

James, I am going to order the 2 power supplies early Friday morning.
I am paying with PayPal, I want the "quiet version" is there a place to
type my request during check out?
How much do I add for payment, or can I?
Thank you.

You can send me money directly using Paypal. Then in the comment section, remind me to send the quiet versions.
For a 24V 47A power supply made from the quiet units, and with an EC-5 the price shipped is $123. Power cords if needed are extra.
