... I also have hard time picturing how the glue cures inside a stanchion mounting hole with the stanchion inserted in the hole.  Since the  walkways and stanchions are made of opaque plastic, how does the UV light get inside the hole to cure the adhesive? ...

Apparently very well. It works, and I'm not questioning it at this point. I've had it up to here trying to wrangle recent-issue stanchions into place using CA. I suggest you add the JB Weld product to your repertoire and try it for yourself; it's only about $11 at the DIY outlets.

Also noted in my post above, the JB Weld UV LED "color" is 365 nanometers, the shorter wavelength of the common UV sources. My little UV flashlight blows the supplied "thumb" light out of the water, but the pinpoint nature of the JB Weld light works quite well, too.

So far, I'm really liking this product. I see it saving lots of time versus regular CA.
