    That is the Brand name, they make many different glues, epoxies, and cements.

    Yes, it works

    It is an expanding glue, so it penetrates porous surfaces and will fill all gaps and spaces. I would scuff surfaces that are really smooth and hard, like plastics and resins.
    Metal, not so much, unless you have a good flat surface to flat surface , maybe. But if you were to use a combination of screw/rivet fastener with the glue, you may see better results

    It dries very hard, not so much brittle, but doesn't flex well.

    Don't get it in your fingers!
    It won't hurt you, it just won't come off.
    You'll have to pretty much have to wear it off your skin if you get it on you, it's that sticky. Only other thing that comes as close is sprayfoam insulation in a can.

    I've used it for everything I want stuck together forever, I swear by it

    Ps
    Many days spent drinking beer in the back yard watching people trying to pick up a couple of dollars in change off the sidewalk with NO results... just cheap fun
    ...if you think I'm a pain in the neck, it's lower, lower,little bit lower, too low, higher, there ya go.....

    I used the standard Gorilla liquid glue to cement a plastic Streamlight lite box headlight housing. Didn't think it would work but worked well. The stuff does expand so clamp the heck out of it.

    I used it to repair a plastic picket fence that a neighborhood brat tore up. Has held up for over three years.

    I like it.

    I used the original it to hook the wood base of an outdoor weatherstation to an iron (painted) flagpole and it held for over five years. Was still hard to remove after a flag-pole catastrophe and I had to replace the pole.

    It may not do well with HDPE plastic - like the bottle it come in.

    The white version I use frequently with foam R/C models. Works great for that - even the float planes.

    If I REALLY need to fix something I use J-B Weld or 30 minute epoxy (or longer).

    you guys come up with some amusing answers. cant clamp it. too hard of an area to sand it. its a real tight area to get too. but for sure its hard plastic. if anybody cares why the problem is ? the transmission solenoid has a wiring harness with 8 wires going to it and a single 8mm bolt through the center holding it down. well sure as s_ _ _ _ with my luck there was a lug melted into the plastic of the recessed area that the bolt screws in to and it broke out of that recessed area with some of the surrounding plastic. and theres dielectric grease in there and probably some trans fluid too. so i thought will i be lucky enuf for this stuff to work. otherwise i might have to get another shift solenoid. and if you're wondering what this is on ?? second generation dodge grand caravan with the 4sp overdrive trans. i need a good luck charm ! swear words are'nt working that good anymore. thanks all-

    This gorilla glue works great! for plastic like that you need to light sand it to give it something to grip to, just after you sand it wipe it clean with water and it doesnt need to be dry, just apply after you wipe down and it works great!

    Just read a post where its dirty, get this electrical cleaner that will remove the grease and dry on its own, also maybe wrap a little sand paper around the end of a stick and rough up the surface best you can.

    If you can' t fix it with a hammer , it is an electrical problem.
    Hard telling on your connection without being there , but if wire connections are good ,a broad plastic or nylon washer might fit under the 8mm bolt.
    JB weld will make a bracket or pylon and be a good insulator in a heat or cold environ , but you want room for your hands to make/ work/ shape it.

    Not a "Gorilla Glue" fix. I agree with Charlie...use JB Weld. AND USE THE SPRAY FIRST. JB Weld will work but the surface has to be clean and totally oil free. Spray, wait a couple minutes, wipe or (close eyes) and use an air hose.
