Glue to use for window frame?

Hi - we have a sliding window that has issues. The metal piece on the edge - the piece that you use to open and close the window and that has the locking mechanism - keeps falling off the weatherstripping. Does anyone know of a particular glue that can be used to keep that metal piece in place?

Saliandra: I used Black RTV adhesive and some bar clamps from harborFreight to reattach mine. Worked well and is still holding. NOTE... clean and dry both window and metal window trim before reattaching.

Thanks everyone. I'm a little confused. Do I glue both the rubber thing to the window and then also glue the metal piece to the rubber? Both pieces fall off. But maybe that rubber piece would stay on the window simply from the pressure of the metal, if it would stop falling off. ??

Take rubber piece out of metal....apply small amount of RTV to either outside rubber piece or inside metal. Insert rubber into metal. Place a small amount of additional RTV into rubber piece that is now inside metal piece. Place metal piece on clean glass edge. Use bar clamps with medium pressure applied to push metal piece back into place on glass. Let project sit for 24 hours as RTV cures.

Hmmm...I only have the one rubber piece. It slips inside the metal piece and then wraps around the window. Am I missing something?

X2, Gorilla glue holds most of my special mods and projects together on our coach. Two part epoxy works well also, but after I started using gorilla glue the epoxy as sat.

Two votes for Gorilla Glue now. What about that RV Goop. I have some of that. Would it work?

Gorilla glue is great. But I hesitate to use it in this type of application. These double pane slider windows have a seal between panes that is exposed at the edges. Gorilla glue may force that seal to break as it expands and makes its polyurethane bond. this will allow moisture into the inner window halves....and most of us have seen coaches with the dreaded FOGGED windows.
