I use 5 minute epoxy. Gives you a chance to properly center the lens over the LED prior to setup.

I use heatsink glue. Doesn't set instantly and you can't beat its thermal properties

I’ve used Cyanoacrylate (Superglue3, etc.) for this purpose. Some complain that its vapors can bleach the lens or LED. The trick here is to use only the exact amout of glue, just a tiny drop in the 3 spots that lens attaches to the strip. Anyone has had issues with this glue? I’m about to fix a LG 42LB650V with plenty of detached lenses and I have to be sure there won’t be long term problems (heat related, for instance).
