Yes you can with Command™ Outdoor Products. The adhesive should be applied to a clean, smooth, dry surface when the temperature is above 15°F (-9°C). The products hold strongly down to -20°F (-29°C). Because the adhesive could soften and lose adhesion above 125°F (51°C), we don't recommend using it in your car.
