They most certainly do!

And upon using the pesky things along with Halfords "We'll fit it!" service I had to return twice when the back number plate kept dropping off.

Eventually and after a lot of protesting they agreed to finally screw the plate back onto the car. It hasn't budged since.

I should say the first time they used just 2 sticky pads and it fell off. The 2nd time they used 6 - Yes thats right, SIX. It still came back off.

Personally I would say do not trust the sticky pads. Thats all they are - STICKY and stickyness fades. Screws are solid physical lumps designed to hold something almost permanently.
