Neither thunderstorms nor direct sunlight nor continued use have managed to dislodge it.

The doorstop I installed was black anodized because the track on my Interstate was black.

I also put it on the enclosed tape at first, but I did not like how it moves for a little bit once heavy door comes over stopper.

What I've done is: I scratched with a knife a needed rectangular portion on the rail until the black layer is gone and a naked metal comes. Then, using the Dremel rotary tool, I scratched the inner surface of my black stopper until it's anodized layer is removed to a naked metal. Cleaned with acetone, glued together both prepared surfaces with JB-weld epoxy.

One thing for sure, it'll be tough to remove.
Glass half full or half empty to an engineer is simply a glass that was over designed.

I remember how I did remove some items, that I previously glued on JB-weld epoxy, from flat surfaces: put a chiesel to the sim and made one sharp kick of a hammer - and it goes out as a Shattle )))
