I purchased a beautiful fireplace door off Craigslist and it is too large for my opening. It fits flush to my brick, but is top heavy, due to the glass doors. My question: Can I use Liquid nails to secure the metal fireplace door to my brick? If not, is there another product I can use. The brackets are not adjustable so I don't think there is a way to make it fit..... Any suggestions?

Do you intend to use the stove for heating or decoration?

Definitely not liquid nails. It will burn.

Maybe use RTV silicone. Rutland is one brand of this.

Home Depot usually carries this as a seasonal product. Ace hardware also stocks it where I am.

you will need to mechanically attach your door to the brick like begreen mentioned above. Glues won't work. Either that or you can just buy a door that fits, that is if you are going to use your fireplace as intended. You can also take your measurements to a local welder and tell him what you want to fabricate/ accomplish, take some pictures with you.
