what do you mean?

Do you mean to attach that scion's root part upsidedown on to the stock
And then...that root part will grows some pups?

Regarding the Loctite / Superglue picture
It says Loctite on the label, which in the USA is usually known as a kind of threadlocker glue used to help secure nuts and bolts as Edwindwianto pointed out. If I remember correctly that glue is usually blue or red. Use blue if you want to the glue to hold but not be permanent and use red if you want it to stay forever. The glue in the bottle in Christer's picture is clear suggesting it really is superglue. I'd guess that Loctite is a brand name of thread locker and perhaps there is a regular superglue sold under the same brand, too.
