I'm looking at ring doorbells in the Black Friday deals. I would need to fit it to the frame of my upvc porch door. Does anyone know if it could be stuck on with adhesive. I'm not keen on drilling into upvc.

I think they usually come with a double-sided sticky pad.

We have a bell stuck onto our uPVC door frame.

Thank you Shysal.

We have one stuck onto the front door, with a plug in part in the hallway, one extra part is plugged in the garage so that we can hear the doorbell at the front door.

Thank you. I've ordered one now and hopefully can stick it onto the door or the frame.

When it arrives please could you let me know whether you can. I have been wondering the same thing

Mine has a very strong ‘stick’ it’s actually on the door frame not the door.

The “stickiness “ works well , but it means the object can be pulled off the frame , and if it is subjected to strong sunlight , that can lead to it falling off
