I wish there was an Ace closer, but they shut down. They have sales on little stuff I need, but not enough to go as far out of my way to get them as I'd have to, now.

I might stick with screws. Maybe some silicone if I needed a moisture barrier, but I wouldn't be counting on the silicone for any kind of strength.
