I don't think you want to be Bonding your hardware, you want it bedded really well

Bonding would almost guarrentee you'll be drilling out screws and removing a layer of glass should you ever want to replace some deck hdwr


Unless it's a epoxy based polysulfide caulk, that is a strong bond, but it is still a bedding not a bonding

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
