Default What's the easiest way of fastening the base of a storage cabinet to concrete floor?

I've used concrete nails in the past, but don't like them. How about Liquid Nails?

Thanks....

I've used liquid nails to keep base cabinets from sliding around & it has worked fine.

If you are not going to move the cabinet, I would suggest Tapcon Concrete Screws, and I've also used Household Goop to glue smaller items to concrete.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Is you cabinet against the wall? If so just fasten to wall with a few screws thru the nail rail. The weight will keep it from moving so no fastening to floor would be needed.

Hi

I will 2nd James .
Most concrete floors are not flat and it's just about always high at the wall,just shim the cabinet and put in a screw or two into the wall stud should keep the cabinet in place and the toe kick should support the cabinet..you don't want to screw it down to the floor the norm because you don't want to rack the cabinet, or pull the joints free, some put down a 2 x 4 and glue/screw it down to the concrete floor inside of the case walls and then finish nail the case to it, when you don't have a wall to anchor it in place.
