They ain't wolfing when they say 0 sec grab time. Keep in mind one at least surface has to be a porous material.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dragonman Took more than 24hr to dry
I decided to use this product since it stated on the label "all purpose" and "low odor" The low odor part was important to me as it would be used in a reptile terrarium to build a fake rock wall out of foam. So I used it to hold the pieces of foam together before covering it with grout. Initial tackiness is pretty good for foam since it's not heavy but don't expect this to hold anything heavier right away. The label says it dries hard in 24 hrs so I left my foam rock wall to dry at least 24hr before doing the grout job. I tested a small piece by pulling on it and came off with little effort. The outside of the glue blob spot was hard but the middle was just as wet as if I had just poured it out the tube. This was very inconvenient as I need this to be dry and inert before I put my bearded dragon on it. I hope this takes less than a week to dry. I gave it 2 stars because the label is misleading. It's definitely not "instant grab".

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz All Purpose Loctite Adhesive
First time using this product. Needed to “glue” some polycarbonate to the inside of a display case. Takes 24 hours to cure. Has about 15 minutes of open work time. Goes on white but the product label says it will dry clear. I am unable to verify this in my use. Goes on easily and the tube has a reusable cap which I find nice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KenSch888 Loctite Power Grab all-purpose DOES NOT cure after 20 hours
I have used other great Locktite product for years and on several projects prefer the Loctite brand over the Liquid Nails product. BUT Loctite Power Grab All-Purpose does anything but grab.
I don't understand how others have been able to get anything to adhere with the product.
I sanded and applied a 1/4 inch bead to a new kitchen draw front and clamped it onto the sanded draw. As the tube doesn't give a curing time I also applied a 1/4 inch bead to a 1x1/8 piece faux-wood trim, pressed another piece of the same material to it and placed a blob on the top as a curing time test.
The air temperature during the "curing time was between 65°F and 75°F and the Rel humidity was 52%.
It took 3 hours for the blob on the top of the test piece to firm up.
I put all of the work in an air-conditioned room overnight.
After 18 HOURS the blob on the top was very firm, but not hard.
I tried a GENTLE twist of the test pieces and they READILY CAME APART.
I felt the Power Grab that was between the pieces and it STILL had the SAME SEMI LIQUID consistency as it had coming out of the tube.
I am thankful that I only "attached" two draw fronts (over $100 each) and did not do all 8. I'll leave these two clamped for another 24 hours in hopes that Power Grag will finally "grab", but I am going to purchase a tube of Liquid Nails for the rest.
IMO, this product should be renamed "Loctite NO GRAB NO-Purpose NON-Adhesive".
I DO NOT RECOMMEND Loctite Power Grab if you want to adhere two pieces of wood or faux-wood and want it to be usable after a day.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CCDIY Not Recommended for Large Gaps
Attempted to install a couple of shower corner shelves with this product. The wall was not square (92 degrees), which resulted in a 3/16 inch gap at each end of the shelf. After 36 hours of curing, the product was still soft and provided little to no adhesion. Removed the shelves and scraped the residue product into a cup. After cleaning up, installed the shelves with silicone adhesive and after 24 hours had a solid installation. After an additional three days, the residue product in the cup still had not cured completely. Perhaps this was a bad or old batch (tube had no manufacture day). I bought this product assuming it would provide a stronger bond than a simple silicone adhesive. It did not!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rom122 Strong Bond and Easy Use
I have purchased this adhesive several times and use it for an assortment of needs. I do a lot of carpentry and use this instead of wood glue. The cartridge fits into any standard caulk gun and makes application easy with little mess. It comes with a cap as well and the adhesive won't dry to rock hard in the stem like some other glues, even after sitting a month or so. it's low odor, gives you about 5 minutes or so to re-position items you're bonding, then it sets up nicely when you leave it alone. The adhesive is rock solid after it cures, as strong as any other adhesive I've used. I found the "dries clear" claim a bit of a stretch: it does go on white but dries with only a slight color change.
Overall, I love the product and will continue to purchase it. Both price and results are great!
