Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MonkeyWrench Complete Failure
I used this stuff to apply "cap a tread" for my stairs. Its a laminate cover to go over your stair treads to give it the look of wood. Liquid nails, heavy duty, completely failed. All my stair tread covers did not adhere to the stairs. Do not buy this stuff. I wish there was a way to get liquid nails to replace the $600 I spent on the 12 cap a treads I purchased and the time it took me to install them.
I used Loctite PL 400 on the last 3 set of stairs and took the remaining liquid nails back to Home Depot.. The 3 stairs that are applied with Loctite Pl 400 are solid as can be, no movement at all,
"I REPEAT, DONT BUY THIS STUFF, DOESNT WORK"

I have been in construction for forty years and this is the first time this product has failed completely. It has been almost two days since I used the product to glue some wood together, in perfect weather, in Phoenix, AZ and the Liquid Nails is still soft.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Does not dry or harden
As other people have mentioned the formulation has been changed to a water/latex based glue that neither hardens nor dries. If fact, nowhere on the container does it give the drying time or safe to use time. I tried this on a simple project - glue a new table top to my shop bench and 24 hours later it has still not dried nor held, so I will have to pull up the top and clean up this gooey mess, then find a real adhesive. Do not waste you time on this product it is entirely worthless, Liquid Nails is Liquid Mess!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by derektrent Disappointment. The formula has changed and has weak adhesion and will not harden.
I couldn't understand why this product would not harden and there was no adhesion. Liquid nails used to be a great product but now it is terrible. I got online and found out the formula was changed. I think peanut butter would have the same effect. This liquid nails product now will crumble away easily after curing and has no adhesion. Big disappointment, waste of money and it was a waste of time for me because I had to scrape it all off and use a different adhesive.

This product is fine if you realize it's limitations. The old version is no longer made because they decided it was harmful to the environment although it was far superior to this product. If you require something that truly is "heavy duty" don't buy this as it name is very misleading.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by justice did not hold
used this product to hold down cap pavers on a retaining wall. once the blocks got wet a week later the caps came loose. picked the caps off and the adhesive was like soup, real runny. I agree with previous review stating product was white and not the old beig color.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ted Used to be good but new formula is miserable
I used liquid nails for many years with much success. It used to be a light brown/beige color and very 'sticky'. Now it is white and comes out more like a soft caulk. I believe that it was changed to reduce certain chemicals and odors. The new product is an inferior adhesive which I would never use again. I have switched to Loctite PL Premium and have had good success.
