Repairing outdoor wood structures

Repair commonly used wood structures such as planter boxes and patio furniture without drills, extension cords and nails. Advanced formula construction adhesives now make it possible to make repairs without using mechanical fasteners.

Step-by-Step Directions


Make sure joint to be glued is clean and dry.


Use a premium adhesive like Loctite® PL Premium® Advanced. This adhesive is extremely strong and has high initial tack, minimizing the amount of bracing needed until the adhesive takes hold. It is water and weatherproof and ideal for outdoor use.


Apply adhesive to one surface and firmly press surfaces together, spreading adhesive across the surfaces being joined.


  • PL Premium Advanced will bridge gaps up to 3/8" so surfaces that cannot be snugly reassembled can still be bonded. Support surfaces for 24 hours.
