Attaching Cabinet

Just getting opinions - anyone use 3M VHB tape in conjunction with wood or metal blocking for securing cabinets to wall?
Iíve used Rivnut and lathe screws ... looking at something with a bit more security and at same time some flexibility.
Regards

On our upper cabinets, we used aluminum piano hinges at the front top of the cabinet, and strips of aluminum 2 inches wide fastened from the back in to the cabinet frame with screws and then flange riveted from the front into the wall. Tried to catch ribs as much as possible.

Lower cabinets were screwed into ribs. Not attached to the floor, except for the cabinet holding the refrigerator.

I have never used 3M tape for attaching wood to metal.

I made my face frame cabinets from maple and maple ply. I attached my cabinets by a few different means. The uppers, I used solid wooden cleats top and back screwed into the ribs. Some of the rest were Craig screwed into the floor and interior skins (I doubled the interior skins in some areas for securing cabinets, dinette, etc.). I also made aluminum cleats to attach frames to walls in non-load bearing locations. Here are a few photos.

edit: sorry about the orientation of the photos. The were correct when I loaded them.
