I don't think so; I used that stuff to make a custom rear-blinkie mount for my rack, and that worked well (bc the blinkie is so light), but I think the tape would not resist much flex, allowing a loaded rack to rotate forward.
I second the recommendation to flatten the typical twisted hardware. Just squeeze it in a vise until you get it flat.
