The groove has converging opposing surfaces towards the groove entrance which defines an enlarged cavity beneath the groove entrance. The adhesive, when it hardens, is securely bonded to the panel and forms an interlock between the panel and the converging surfaces of the groove to interconnected securely the panel to the structural member.
