Ceiling Panel

I have a piece of my ceiling panel that I cannot get to glue back on. The ceiling looks like this:




I have tried to use wood glue and super glue. How can I get this panel to stay on??

You may have to resort to using a short (16") piece of 1x4 to span across the opening, gluing it down to the tops of the tiles across from each other with PL8x adhesive. Once that has cured, you can put daubs of PL8x on the member and the ceiling joist that is exposed and press the tile in place. It should hold, although it wasn't designed for that type attachment.

Could you please elaborate further? Not sure I fully get what you mean.

PL8x is an adhesive caulk - Shop LOCTITE Pl Premium 10-oz Construction Adhesive at Lowes.com

Basically you use the adhesive to 'glue' a 1x longer than the hole to the adjoining tiles and when dry - glue the other tile to the 1x.

I don't work with crayons very well, and Paint is even worse. Maybe this will help visualize it.
