Hello!

I am looking for tips on how to best affix the corner of a sticker that has peeled off of a cartridge. You can see the situation on the image below. I want to restore this in the first place, but I also want to be able to insert the cartridge to test it, and that is currently not possible without the sticker peeling off further.

Thanks anyone in advance!

PS. For those who are interested, this is a Game Boy flash cartridge from China Coach Limited. It can 'officially' be flashed with a Pro Fighter X (Turbo) 2-in-1 or 3-in-1, or unofficially with a Super Wild Card (DX) using a program written by Anthrox.

Right, I was thinking perhaps there is some special kind of glue that people use for this type of work.

Thanks! I got "UHU", I think it's German. Going to try it tonight.

Curious how this method holds up over time - does the sticker you repaired w/ UHU still look good?

@andDevW Not sure to be honest, it's in a box in the basement. Next time it goes through my hands I will check.
