Attach slim magnet to glass?

I ordered slim magnets for my entry sensors because my windows are double hung. However, they are still too wide to place horizontally (sticky side down) on the space between the upper and lower window. The only option would be to attach the slim magnet to the glass of the upper window so that the bottom pane can still slide up and down past it. Does anyone know if it’s okay to attach the slim magnet to glass and if the adhesion will hold?

Hi @jaclynalyse, 

Yes, you can certainly attach the Slim Magnet right on the glass of the window, and the adhesion will hold just fine. I have older, recessed windows in my home, so I actually needed to put Slim Magnets on the glass when installing my Entry Sensors, too - they've never fallen once! Before installing, I would clean and dry the window to ensure it's clear of any dust or dirt to help with the adhesion.

@emily_s​ thank you so much! This is such a relief. I’m going to give it a shot.
