Caulking to a tiled wall


My wife owns a restaurant and has a display case that weighs about 5 pounds or a little more. This case must hang on a tiled wall but I hate to drill holes into the tile because this will be the second time I've had to move it leaving holes in the tile. I tried using some 2-inch wide velcro strips but the tape eventually pulled away from the wall.

After caulking a bathroom sink, I thought about the fact that silicone caulk sticks pretty good to tile. I was wondering how stupid of me it would be to caulk the velcro, or the case itself, onto the wall?

Why do you have to keep moving it?

Caulking to a tiled wall


Liquid nails actually bonds surprising well to tile despite saying on the tube not designed for ceramics. But I've used it to hang trim around a heat register that I could not for the life of me find an appropriate outside diameter for. So, I trimed the register out with wood molding and used the LN to hold it on. Its not 5lbs, but you couldn't pull from the wall without a prying tool.....
