Set T Trim Molding in Place? (Loose)

Hi, any suggestions on setting molding in place around doors, etc in interior?

It has become loose at the ends around some cabinets.

I had tried contact cement before on another RV which was not the thing apparently (unless I done it wrong).

Haven't tried heat or anything but any wisdom appreciated.

Thanks.

I used Seal-All. It seamed to bight into the plastic trim and adhere to the MDF that the doors and drawer faces were made of. I heated up the trim in boiling water so I could stretch it into place. I cut notches into the leg of the"T" trim where it rounded the corners.
I fastened the ends in place with ring shank boat nails. This held well on outside corner pieces. I never got around to trying this method on inside trim around openings.

I've had great luck with Liquid Nails.

Hamby's idea for pinning the end is a great one.

One comment, would be to avoid pinning the ends when the trim is inside...it shrinks over time and that will pull the corners out....Best we have had is to push the ends back to compress the corners over time. Our under sink opening trim has shrunk about an inch over time...
