Do you know how to...

  1. I hope this is the right forum.
    The carpet inside the port of my GK RBH cabinet is coming loose... does it matter what kind of adnesive I use??? It seems kind of silly writing this but I don't want to screw anything up.

  2. does someone have an idea for me?

    I've had good luck with contact cement, but I'll have to get some of that stuff, is it easy to find?
  7. Thank you! ... is this a spray on? Home depot?

    Spray glue works great but if you can't get the can inside the port to properly spray the underside of the loose carpet without overspray getting on everything, then contact cement applied with a brush or foam applicator would work fine. Apply a fine coating to both surfaces (back of carpet and wood), let dry then press together--voila.

    You can actually apply spray glue on your hand and smear it into the ports if you need too. Spray some on the back of the carpet if you can too. Get the 3M stuff.
  10. Thanks guys... I did find the 3m and will give it a try this weekend. I'm thinking I should use gloves to spray it on my hands and spread it :) that is a good idea though... I was wondering how I was going to get it on the wood inside of the port.

    Thansk again!
