Adding heat tape to rack

Hey guys so I finally built my own melamine rack, after building several cheap racks in the past. The heat tape should be here from usps in a couple hours my question is what do you guys use to tape the heat tape down. In the past I've used packing tape and electrical tape, as well as duct tap, and none lasted very well. When I was at Walmart getting the tubs for the rack I noticed they had gorilla tape, anyone have experience with gorilla tape holding down heat tape. My only concern is it seems thicker than most tape? Thanks in advance for any advice

Just use foil tape. It will hold it down forever.

Use the foil tape that is used in home duct work, it will take the heat, does not dry out and stays sticky forever.
