The rubber nose piece of my Bolle glasses has come off of plastic clip that it attaches to. This is the perscription lens attachment. What adhesive would hold them together again?

Loctite 406 cyanoacrylate Adhesive , or you can try general purpose super glue (it's also a CA but less specific for rubber)

Thanks,

Do you know if the 406 is available in places like Target, Walmart, etc.? If not where would I find it?

In case you're still interested. You can find a deal near you on the Loctite website. It's not cheap stuff so try to get the smallest 3 gram tube.

This is the glue used for gluing artificial nails on (you'll find it next to the fake nails in the drug store). My daughter the engineer found it, and uses it for everything. I was complaining about my sunglasses coming apart (just like yours) and she whipped this stuff out. That was 4 months ago and the sunglasses are working fine!
