Fitting Window Quadrants

Post by Aeisor » Mon Feb 20, 2012 8:14 pm

Hello

I'm trying to fit some 12mm quadrants to our PVC windows with plasterboard surround, but having problems with the top length. How on Earth would I get this to stay in place, without cutting several timber posts to length and supporting? The window is ~2.5m wide.

I've tried contact adhesive - didn't hold. The weight of the quadrant pulled it down. I don't suppose it helps that the length isn't perfectly flat either.

Loathed to try sticking it up with silicone, grip fill, evo-stick, etc... No means of supporting the thing for hours while it goes off.

Thoughts appreciated and thanks in advance.

You could use silicone and some sticky pads to hold the trim in position until the silicone cures, like in this method-



Or you could use Everbuilds Maximum torque grab adhesive-
