Did not work, shower panels fell right off. Very frustrating. Put on, held and taped. Panels Kept dropping. Next day I pulled the panels down because it was obvious the liquid nails was not going to hold. Most of the material didn't even have a set. I would not recommend wasting your time or money on this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BrianK Does not hold
I wish I had read the previous review before applying this product. I put liquid nails for tub surrounds on the main shower wall and it immediately noticed a lack of adhesion. I was able to get it to stay but after a few showers (I waited the suggested timeframe) it has started to peel off the cement backerboard, creating areas that jut out. After putting up the main wall, I had to run to Home Depot to buy more adhesive. This time, because I was nervous about the liquid nails, I bought a different adhesive brand...those walls held perfectly. Unfortunately, with this kind of application it is now too late to fix the main wall that I used liquid nails on.

It did not stick to smooth plastic and it did not dry overnight. The Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround worked much better.

If you are planning on installing any tub or shower surround DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! We recently purchase and new tub and tub surround and per employee recommendation picked up a couple of these tubes to use for the surround. We applied two full tubs to a side panel per instructions. This adhesive had no stick what so ever. Ended up going back to home depot and purchasing the loctite adhesive and that worked like a charm, panels stuck immediately.

You might have better luck with a tub of Elmer's paste. No adhesion or hold whatsoever. Just get regular Liquid Nails or the exterior stuff they make; so much better. Home Depot, stop carrying this stuff!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LadyHandyman This product is Worthless! Do Not Buy!
I purchased this product and followed the directions exactly as written on the tube but the stuff Just Does Not Hold. The panels fell down after 24 hours and you could roll the "putty" off of them. So, I started thinking that maybe the bathroom walls were too cold since it was the end of February and all when I put them up so I brought in a heater, warmed the bathroom up, applied new glue & rehung and braced again......Nope - the panels fell down again after 24 hours. No reason for this to not be holding the panels up other than it being garbage. Taking the unused tubes back & demanding money back on all of the empty tubes too!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by George Liquid Nail Tub Adhesive is a waste of your time.
Worthless Product. Followed manufacturer's directions exactly and attempted to attach one piece of the tub surround to hardiboard cement backer board. This product failed miserably. We spent about an hour trying to get one panel to stick. Our only mistake was wasting so much time trying to get this product to work. Just ended spending more time to clean up the mess this product created.
I have been happy with all other products that I have purchased with Home Depot. This product is a definite exception. We would recommend to Home Depot that they should drop liquid nails tub adhesive. We'll be trying the Loctite Power Grab tub adhesive since their product seems to have much better reviews.

I have installed dozens of tub surrounds with this adhesive over greenboard and drywall. It is included in many Tub Surround products. Works Perfectly!
It is critical that you leave a small glue vent at the tops of the tub surround parts to allow it to dry properly. NEVER caulk the top of the tub surround until at least 24-48 hours after installation or the adhesive will not dry right.
Also, I cut about (3) 2x4s and (5) 1x2s to build a bracing systems for the bottom, top, and side edges that I leave on for 24 hours minimum.
If you don't follow the directions and brace it, the tub surround will not adhere and will have voids in the center.
