I used a Arrow electric staple gun to do mine. You got to press hard and put a lot of staples in the fabric. I did not use any adhesive in the stapled area. I used 3M weatherstrip adhesive (yellow) on the side fabric where it glues to the frame and at the top front bar or bow. Its holding together fine.
