Liquid Nails: More Reliable Than Real Nails?

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Now we’re going to talk to Carlos from New York who’s got a question about attaching some trim pieces. Welcome, Carlos.

    CARLOS: How are you? How you doing?
    LESLIE: Good, how are you?
    TOM: We are excellent. So how can we help you?
    CARLOS: My problem was how to adhere or put together my corner bead.
    TOM: OK.
    CARLOS: In the corner of the project that I had.
    TOM: OK.
    CARLOS: And every time I tried to put a nail, I would break up some of the plaster that I had.
    TOM: Right.
    CARLOS: I said, “You know, this nail thing is crazy. I’ve got to use an adhesive somehow.”
    TOM: OK.
    CARLOS: And it just came to me. It just came to me. I’ve got to use the construction adhesive that will glue this piece to the wall.
    TOM: So you used, what; Liquid Nails?
    CARLOS: I used Liquid Nails.
    TOM: Oh, are you one of our Liquid Nails storytellers?
    CARLOS: (chuckling) I guess I’m one of them; one more. (Leslie chuckles) One more satisfied customer.
    TOM: Yeah, you must have been one of the guys that wrote in with a Liquid Nails story. And so you used Liquid Nails to attach this corner bead. Well, that was a good solution.
    CARLOS: (overlapping voices) I used Liquid Nails and nothing worked as well as this piece did.
    TOM: Wow, that’s great. So, it came out good, huh?
    CARLOS: Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
    TOM: Yeah, it’s pretty handy stuff to have around. There are a lot of things that you can do with that and, you’re right; sometimes a nail just isn’t going to do the job because the piece is too small or it’s going to split it or something like that.
    CARLOS: You need to have at hand three different types of glue if you are in the house doing projects and things like that.
    TOM: OK, so this is Carlos’s glue guide. Let us have it. (Leslie and Carlos chuckle)
    CARLOS: You need to have the construction adhesive; that’s number one.
    TOM: Right.
    CARLOS: You need to have the super glue at hand.
    TOM: OK.
    CARLOS: That’s number two. And without any doubt, you need to have an epoxy glue at hand.
    TOM: Alright, well that’s a good tip.
    Carlos, thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
