Question Overhead cupboard glue?

Hi folks,
The decorative glass fell out of one of our over head cupboards on the last trip. Would like advice on the best way to hold it in place.

thanks
Steve

Clear caulk all the way around.

There is a polyurethane caulk that you can get at glass shops for about $5.00 a tube that does a better job than silicone. Comes in several different colors.

I fixed mine with a Hot Glue Gun as instructed by Mike Burns from FR a few years back. Eventually you'll be getting around to all of them. I've had to fix 5 over the years and just decided to address the others during the last fix. All things considered I highly recommend closing the overhead cabinet doors if you don't need them open. Our first one fell out when I left it open over-night before a trip. We were going to the store the next day and when we got back, the mirror piece was hanging from the old glue about 2 feet above the table.

My favorite for anything like this is Goop. Smooth with a damp finger.

I've used hot glue on several of mine and it has worked well for over a year now.

Ours only has two glass doors over the dash. One was coming loose so I installed four glass clips on each available at Rocklers and probably any woodworking source. I do not trust the glue, especially over my head.

Thanks all,
Used clear silicone as I had some. Looks like it should hold for quite a awhile
