How do you secure insulation between metal studs? I can't staple, but I'm sure there is a way.

Dear KLK,
I remember a contractor using a mastic glue to hold the batts in place, and another using 3" rigid foam wedged in place and caulked. The fella used this on interior walls also for sound proofing.
Hope I helped,
Len

They make Fiberglass insulation designed a little wider just for metal studs.
