Replacement glass adhesive not sticking

Purchased the replacement glass for 5th gen nano, easily removed old glass, scraped and cleaned with ISO alcohol. Installed new glass. The adhesive only lasted a few hours, the glass just falls out. I have tried cleaning again and a heat gun, neither help. Is this just the quality of the product?

Make sure the area you cleaned is completely wiped dry, isopropyl softens adhesive to a point where it is useless if it gets soaked up, which may have happened when you first stuck the screen on, even if it is a very small amount. For this reason, I just peel/scrape off the old adhesive when doing screen replacements, instead of cleaning with isopropyl.

You may have to apply your own adhesive at this point, search for "ultra sticky double sided adhesive" on eBay, they usually sell very thin rolls.
