Default Crrcpro uat repair?

One end of my CRRCPRO UAT popped off while fueling my jet (the MESS is now cleaned up, thank you). I got it about 4 years ago and finally got around to installing it in a jet. I don't remember where I purchased it but it was a new item.
It popped off cleanly and the parts look new.
Any suggestions on a repair? What type of adhesive?

Thank y'all.
Bob

Throw it out! It isnít worth risking a flameout. I had one that gave a flameout and then came apart while fueling. It canít take high pressure fuel flow of the fuel can pump. It sprayed fuel all over the interior and ruined a PB Mercury SRS. That $40 UAT will cost you a minimum of $500! Itís nice looking though.
