Loose patio steps

We always seem to have at least 3 pavers loose on our patio steps. How can I reattach them and get them to stay secure?

Unfortunately without filling in between the blocks there is very little to hold them in place.

What was used originally, patio block adhesive?

Yes I believe patio adhesive. Iíve tried liquid nails a couple of times and last year I tried cementing them in. They just keep coming loose. I was going to try the cement again.

Get both surfaces of the stones clean with a steel brush and make sure they are dry. Then try using a grey polyurethane concrete sealant to set your stones. Be sure you use enough of it. Several silver dollar sized dollops one on each corner.

I think liquid nails breaks down when wet, you need block adhesive, it's at the big box stores!
