Or he lives someplace like I used to. Most of the time the truck is in the driveway and the dogs will eat anyone who comes close.
The rest of the time it is in a lot where everyone around it knows whose truck it is and if some stranger passes through and wants to try it he'll end up with a load of rocksalt in his ass before he gets 10 feet. [or maybe that 100 pound hound sitting there acts as a bit of a deterrent]
Lots of places like that still exist.

Why not use a hot glue gun?
The stuff sticks until you want to remove it. And when you do, it doesn't cause any damage.

Trick I heard about and have tried with some success is glycerine. Get a small bottle at the drug store.
Clean both the surface (tile) and the suction cup well, allow to dry. Apply the smallest amount of glycerine you can to the rim of the suction cup and press firmly into place. The glycerine won't hurt anything but since it won't evaporate over time, prolongs the air tight seal.
IIRC, you can also use glycerine to seal cutting boards and wood handles on cutlery.

Suction cups are a joke. They have never worked well, and never will. If you just want to hang a piece of paper or small sign, go ahead and use a suction cup. For anything else, find another method!
