    argh, since it was already answered...

    I've found it at all those places...Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Lowe's, Home Depot...

    pretty common item.

    spray glue, make sure you spray on then let sit for like 45 seconds then put on then put weight on it, that works best for me

    3M-77 or 3M-90. Contact cement would also work, but for a large job spray adhesive makes much more sense.

    3M spray adhesive. As vossch said spray both surfaces, let it tack before attaching, and it'll never come off.

    Re: how do you seal carpet to your boxes

    Re: how do you seal carpet to your boxes

    DAPs contact cement.. my dad is a union carpet layer and thats what he always tells me to use.. and hes been doing carpet for 31 years so i trust him u can pick a can up at lowes and probaly home depot.

    oh if u use this.. dont get the gel.. and apply it to both the carpet and the box...this stuff has a very strong odor so make sure this is done outside... let it dry for a day too or ur car will stink like it.... after u let that cure i garauntee ur carpet wont come off and will look good.

    You must be doing something wrong, 3M-77/90 stick very, very well.

    well glue isnt really that hard to use... so i dont know what
    i could be doing wrong exactly...

    the nearly instantaneous bond and control of the hot glue
    must just suit me better...

    Well you're definitely doing something wrong, they make a very strong adhesion. It's sort of similar to contact cement, you have to spray both sides fairly generously and wait at least a minute before you adhere them to each other, otherwise it won't work.
