01

Clean the surface

Use a brush to remove as much dust, grime or grease from your surface as possible as these will inhibit the glue’s effectiveness.

02

Apply the adhesive

Apply the glue in dots or lines either to the surface or to the object you’re mounting, which ever is the rougher. Make sure you leave enough space between them – around 10cm - for the glue to dry.

03

Position the object

Simply press the object – in this case a mailbox – to the surface. As the glue has yet to harden, you can now adjust the object so it’s in precisely the right position, and then use a cloth to wipe away any residual glue that has seeped out around the edges.

04

Allow to dry

Whatever you’re mounting, whether it’s mailbox, a light fixture or a shelf, press down firmly across the entire surface to get as close a bond as possible, then leave it (supported if necessary) for at least 48 hours. Heavier items need to be supported. Depending on the material, the final strength is reached after up to 3 weeks.
