Attaching outside corner baseboard blocks

My house has those rounded outside corners that I'm installing baseboard on. I've purchased those rounded blocks that match the baseboard. Was just wondering what is the proper way to secure these? Glue? Nails?

I believe there is metal/aluminum(whatever it is) rounded corner bead there. Would I be able to use a nail gun through this to attach them or will I just need to use some type of glue?

Thanks!

You could use caulk to "glue" them in place.

You think that would hold them if they get bumped? I have some titebond III I was thinking about using. But if I can shoot some finish nails through it and through the corner bead that may be best. Just not sure if nails will go through corner bead.

How are they going to get bumped if they are on inside corners with baseboard on either side? Maybe I'm not understanding what you're dealing with.

I'd try using an adhesive caulk along with one brad shot thru it. A gun nail should penetrate the corner bead.

Thanks, yeah I'll try to shoot a nail through it with some adhesive caulk on the back and see what happens. Mossman, they are outside corners not inside corners. Here is a link to something similar at lowes
