    Take a fine quality construction adhesive tube and cut off its tip at an angle, using a sharp knife cutter. Now load it into a caulk gun and apply a small blob of construction adhesive to the back of the bracket. Carefully place the wooden bracket in the selected position and gently push it firm against the surface. Wait for few minutes until the adhesive dries out completely.
