STEP 1

Clean the surfaces

You may want to start right away with the gluing part, but first you need to clean the surfaces. With a cloth, clean the wall and the back of your hook shelf to assure they are free from dirt and dust. Having clean surfaces guarantees a better adhesion of the product - you'll do anything to avoid your shelf to fall, won't you?

STEP 2

Prepare the cartridge gun

Using a cartridge gun is useful, but you need to prepare the cartridge as well. Put the cartridge tip on top of a piece of wood to stabilize it and cut it with the cutter.

STEP 3

Extrude some product

Sometimes, the first centimetres of product inside the cartridge are not in their best conditions due to packaging. Therefore, make sure to extrude 5 cm of adhesive into the waste box to avoid possible damaged product that could lose the adhesion properties. The remaining product will work perfectly for all your DIY projects.

STEP 4

Prepare the cartridge nozzle

The preparations are almost over! Screw the nozzle onto the cartridge and use the piece of wood to cut it. You should try to cut where you can have a hole of around 6mm, which is the recommendable diameter for the product application.

Step 5

Apply the product

Put the cartridge into the cartridge gun and let the fun start! Apply construction adhesive (e.g. UniBond One For All) to the back of the hook shelf, in vertical lines. Lay continuous beads of adhesive and don't press them too hard to avoid flatting them. Always try to apply the same amount of adhesive in every bead.
