Cove and crown, batten and baseboard: Wall moldings go a long way toward enhancing a room, so long as their fragile surfaces aren't marred during installation. After all, when you nail trim pieces to the wall, you run the risk of leaving unsightly nail holes or indentations from mislaid hammer strikes. Adhesives are, by comparison, far gentler, but it's crucial to pick the right one. Some adhesives are specially formulated for use with select materials, but Liquid Nails Fuze*It works on almost every type of surface, the only exceptions being polyethylene and polypropylene.

Do No Damage1/6
Get a Handle on Hardware2/6
A kitchen cabinet knob comes loose from the door, and upon noticing you think, "OK, I'll fix it later." Fast forward six months: There's still no hardware on the door, and every time you walk into the room, you're bothered by the eyesore and inconvenience. Sound familiar? It doesn't have to be that way! Liquid Nails Fuze*It offers a fast fix. Simply apply the formula, reposition the knob, and as soon as the "instant grab" adhesive takes hold, move on with your life. Why put up with pesky, mundane problems when there's a virtually instant, effortless solution at your disposal?
Say Yes to the Yard3/6
While some adhesives are recommended only for use under certain limited circumstances, others can be applied with confidence virtually anywhere, inside the home or out in the yard. Take Liquid Nails Fuze*It, for example. It bonds rain or shine, even in extreme temperatures (-40°F to 300°F). That means if you're undertaking an ambitious outdoor DIY, you can rely on Liquid Nails Fuze*It to make it more manageable. Likewise, if there's a simple fix on your to-do list—say, repairing a loose fence gate latch—the powerful adhesive can help you complete it more quickly, with ease.
Take Care of Tile4/6
There are plenty of reasons to love tile. For one thing, it's easy to clean. For another, it lasts a lifetime—but it's definitely not invincible. If, in the course of daily life, you end up with a broken tile, particularly in a wet area, don't delay your repair. After all, moisture can spell trouble for both the tile installation and the subfloor beneath. Of course, you may not be prepared to install a new tile at a moment's notice, but right away, using nothing more than Liquid Nails Fuze*It, you can put the broken one back together for a temporary fix. Always at the ready, Liquid Nails Fuze*It is your new go-to.
Create a Stronger Bond5/6
Historically, chair rail molding served to protect plaster walls from being damaged by a pulled-out chair. Today, it still performs the same function, but homeowners primarily install it for decorative purposes, as a means of adding classic style and architectural interest. If you're a do-it-yourselfer planning a wall trim project, think about equipping yourself with construction adhesive. For one thing, the use of adhesive means you can drive fewer nails, saving effort and time. For another, a product like Liquid Nails Fuze*It creates a bond that's two times strong than fasteners alone.
Better the Bathroom6/6
Many adhesives are limited by a fundamental flaw: They cannot be applied to wet surfaces. That's not the case with Liquid Nails Fuze*It, whose moisture tolerance gives it the edge in settings like the bathroom. Here, the adhesive comes in handy for any number of jobs—installing a tub surround, repairing a leaky drain pipe, putting in a stone vanity top, or tiling a flat surface. Need to reattach the toilet-paper holder that keeps falling down? No problem. Want to affix a medicine cabinet more securely to the wall? Consider it done. Exceptionally versatile, Liquid Nails Fuze*It rises to the task when and where you need it to perform.
