After 30 years of using caulk and alike products for home and Business, I found:
Every time I used caulk or caulk like products, I needed to find some type of tool to puncture the caulk membrane. When there was caulk leftover, I needed to find something to cap or plug it in order to use the caulk again. This might a be a piece of wire, a nail, screw, dowel, or some similar device.
Unfortunately, when I went back to use the caulk, it had usually hardened. No matter what devise I used to seal, cap or plug the caulk with, it had gotten hard. Impossible, to pull out of the neck (stem). Many times I ended up throwing the tube away and wasting the leftover caulk or product.This caulking tool is, a caulk saver and a "tool" for saving caulk and caulk like Products.
*1st secret. The Caulk Savers Patented Threads cut into the inside of the stem of the tube creating female threads. When the Caulk Saver is screwed down about three or four times it seats and will not allow any air to get into the tube of product. Now the tube is sealed from the inside-out, not like the other items that try to seal the tube from the outside-in. Outside-in allows air into the stem causing the product to dry out. *2nd secret. The Secret to Caulk Longevity is the Length of the Caulk Saver, which creates a channel/passage to allow the product to flow out easily. If it was any shorter the product could still dry up in the stem of the tube. Proven through 8 months of professional testing.
The Length of the Caulk Saver and the PatentedThreadsare the key.*
