You are right to worry about this. There are a lot of wrong ways and few
right ways to fix this. First is to make sure it is very clean of foreign debris. I would use a cotton swab or Q-tip here. Next is the glue. I like fast acting super glue better known as cyanoacrylate. Make sure it is fast acting. But applied only with a steady hand and a toothpick. And exactly where the chrome will go. Then move your chrome piece to exactly where it belongs and hold it there for just a moment when the glue will hold. It will only take a few seconds. This way you never use tape and worry about where the glue seeps. If you need practice try this way on something very delicate. And good luck.
