What You Need in Order Use Liquid Nails

Since Liquid Nails is a construction adhesive, a caulking gun will be needed to be able to get the glue out, regardless of which one you get. Once you have a caulking gun, you can place your adhesive bottle in it, cut off the tip, and use either a nail or a wire to puncture the inner seal and then you can start gluing. If you get Liquid Nails in any unwanted areas, you can use water to clean it up if it is still wet or any adhesive remover if it has dried.
