    I have built one of those Harbor Freight greenhouses: light plastic panels (looks like clear plastic corregated card board) that are snapped into their place in a aluminum frame.


    The green house works great UNTIL significant gusts of winds (the kind you get around here in November and March storm seasons hit) hit. When a rather strong windstorm (the likes of which we get about 3 times a year) hit last week, it blew off five of the plastic panels. I had to go retrieve them off of a neighbor's property, in an area that is rough and snake ridden.


    I am figuring I can use a strong UV rated tape to tape in each of the panels. That should take care of the problem.


    But what would be the best UV rated tape for this purpose? And where can I buy it?


    Thanks in advance.

    can you drill holes frame and screw them in. it would seem to be stronger than tape.
