Life line block glue?

I am confused! Tubes are pvc, need to replace 4 life line blocks, have seen the ceredi ones I need on rib shop, but the item needs hypolon glue and thinners! How does that work on pvc tubes??

The Ceredi lifeline blocks are made of epdm, they will require a primer of hypalon glue/thinners before using the pvc glue.

I would sand and prime the PVC tube with PVC glue..... Then use Bostik on both surfaces and try to roll or apply pressure... Use Bostik 501 thinners to clean all surfaces... BUT I have skipped the PVC prime bit before and just used Bostik and has been fine..

Why are you sanding a pvc tube? You clearly misunderstand how adhesive works on pvc.
