DIY Projects May Be Simpler Than You Think

February 24, 2011

(NewsUSA) - If you are planning a home do-it-yourself project but are worried about the consequences of messing up, it could be that you’re not using the right tools for the job. It may be possible to find better ways to accomplish a task — oftentimes as simple as using adhesive.

For example, if you are planning to install paneling, drywall, chair rails or other building materials, the use of mechanical fasteners, like nails, may not be the best choice. Using adhesives allows for DIYers to accomplish a lot of tasks much faster, with less work and with better results.

For example, Liquid Nails Adhesive Ultra Quik Grip allows you to simply apply a bead of adhesive to the chair rail, align the part and press it into place. If the chair rail wasn’t aligned perfectly, you would have five minutes to adjust the part before the adhesive dries. You wouldn’t need to use a nail gun or finish the part after its


“Products like Liquid Nails adhesives adhere almost instantly, saving time,” said Handy magazine member James Beck.

Liquid Nails Ultra Quik Grip has several properties that make it ideal for DIYers. It grips and holds parts immediately, while also allowing for parts to be adjusted. The adhesive doesn’t get stringy, so it doesn’t go where it’s not wanted. In addition, its low-VOC formulation means that it’s not flammable and that it doesn’t produce fumes. This makes it appropriate for use in occupied homes. And it’s easy to use.

In a recent Handyman Club of America Member Tested survey, users rated performance and ease of use at 9.4 and 9.3 out of 10, respectively. Ninety-eight percent of respondents said that they would purchase the product in the future. For more information about Liquid Nails Adhesive Ultra Quik Grip and DIY projects, visit
