Default Gluing rubber pieces

Trying to repair the foot on the extension laddder I use
in the hangar.

It needs a new rubber foot.

I'm riviting a 1/4" piece or rubber to the aluminum foot.
Then I want to glue a 1/8" piece to the that to cover the
rivet heads.

So the glue joint would mostly be in compression and would
have to have decent shear strength. It wouldn't have to have
more peel strength than what's required to reliably keep the
1/8" piece from falling off.

In the dark ages, I'd reach for the Pliobond. Is there a better
solution these days? Crazy glue of some kind?

Maybe tire patching cement? Got a bike tire patch kit handy?

I think you might be blinded to a more simple cure.

Can you not wrap the rubber around the piece that it sits on, and
mechanically fasten the rubber on the sides (90 degrees off of the bottom
plane) of the foot, either onto an existing part or to a small piece of
added angle stock?

Either that, or use a thicker piece of rubber, and countersink the rivit. A
piece of tire tread cut to size works great for that kind of thing.

I'd use contact cement.

3M Weatherstrip Trim Adhesive. Get it at any auto parts store. Comes in yellow
or black, although sometimes black is hard to find.

I work in maintenance at a tire plant and they keep pliobond in their
storeroom. We used it to glue an airplane tire to a rim for a tire
balancer. I'm not sure what their original purpose for pliobond is at our
plant but I figure it's pretty good for rubber adhesive.
