Need Help - Stomp pad problem

Okay, I bought this Dakine stomp pad a while back:
Dakine Clutch Stomp Pad
I followed the instructions, which included heating both the stomp pad with its adhesive as well as the board itself. However, when I peeled the protective layer off of the adhesive on the stomp pad, the adhesive itself also came off. Unfortunately, I didn't realize this until it was too late. I affixed the pad to my board and held it tightly in place for a few minutes. Then, it promptly fell off since the adhesive layer had come off.
So here's my question: Since I like the pad itself, what else can I use to stick it to my board. I figure the problems are:
(a) finding something strong enough and hardy enough to withstand normal usage on a snowboard, and
(b) finding something that won't potentially damage the top sheet of my board.

Any ideas?

Not to be an ass or anything, but loose the stopmp pad it's not as neccessary as you think even with a slick topsheet. Begining of the season last year I lost mine on the lift so I paniced and of course I slipped coming of the lift. After 2 more runs I completely forgot about it and have ridden without it ever since. It's more mental than you think. By the way it was a Dakine stomp pad that I lost after applying it on the board after a day.

I just put a Dakine on my board, you are supposed to heat the board and the pad. But heat the Pad with the backing already peeled off.

lose the stompy bro. Just use your back binding. If you push your foot back against it your foot wont slip and you'll have more edge controll than just standing on the center of the board.

Just get another one and don't even bother heating it up. Clean the board's surface, peel, stick, put a brick on top of it for an hour and viola.

Agreed. I've got a few different Dakine pads on my boards, never heated them up, and never had a problem with them not sticking.

Pads suck, get a 6 pack of spiked studs. Grip like crazy even when caked in snow.
