Perfect for caulk and for protecting your shirt from your pens!I really love these and recommend them to everyone. I have two uses for them:1. The main use I have for them is the one for which they are designed: keeping tubes of caulk good between uses. In the past I used to put a plastic bag over the end and then wrap a rubber band around. The problem with that (besides looking terrible) is that these caulk tubes have very low friction at the end and frequently the plastic and rubber band would come off quite easily. These caps do a much better job. I don't really like actually exposing the rubber to the caulk or adhesive or whatever. So what I do is put a small square (maybe 2x2 inches) of plastic or saran wrap over the tip, then put this on top--if you want to store for a very long time and are worried about it drying, you can insert a nail in the end before putting on the plastic. This product unwraps just like a condom. It exerts pressure all along the end of the caulk tube and goes past the plastic square...it stays on and looks good. When you want to take them off, you just unroll from the bottom and they come off and look just like they did before use. So you can use them over and over (if you put plastic on there first. At Ace there are plastic caps that are intended to do the same thing but they don't work nearly as well. Actually there are several competing products but this is by far the best.2. I also put this on the ends of my clicky pens that I wear in my shirt pocket. They are gel pens similar to a pilot G2. The problem with that type of pen is that if it ever gets clicked open inadvertently, it will soak into your shirt and ruin it. Put this over the end and that will never happen. You can carry your pens without adding bulk to your pocket and without worrying about ruining your shirts. Basically this is a much improved pocket protector.Anyway, this is a great product. These two uses are really quite important to me, so I will always keep them around.5Great product, I HIGHLY recommend them.These caulk condoms are great and they really beat other options I've tried.PROSThey are generally reusable and keep most of my unused caulk and construction adhesive tubes ready for months but I prefer a nail with a red cap/condom over it for best results. The nail allows more penetration into the tip IN CASE it happens to dry out and extends the caulks reusable life span.CONSThey don't hold up long enough with polyurethane construction adhesives as they deteriorate and crumble the caps and the adhesives dry out however using a nail helps extend the caps life greatly. For construction adhesives, I use two caps with a nail with much better results.The caps need to be resistant to more chemicals.4Nice clean cap vs nail rust Wish that they would have had these available 30 years ago! They work on almost any spout or nozzle from my glue to caulking. Someone wrote and said that why bother paying for something like this when you can just put a nail down in it to seal it.. I will tell you why for those that still do this because it is "cheap". It isn't cheap! Anytime you have to squeeze your caulk out on a rag to get to the caulk that isn't RUSTED from the nail, you just wasted your money on caulk which was way more expensive than the nail you bought. Whoever came up with this horrible idea is dead wrong. A nail is the worst thing that you can seal caulking with! Probably some ole guy 50 years ago used one as he had nothing else to use and then it became some sort of a "thing to do"?I have lost more caulk due to the "nail trick" and had to squeeze out 5" of rusty caulk before it comes clean. Maybe it would be different with stainless steel nails? I don't know. But I do know this...for the little bit of money you pay to get these red caps, that are re-usable over and over, is small compared to the mess you get when you go to use caulk that has had a nail shoved into the nozzle. I will never go back.I did write this review on my own. I didn't get any discount or anything free. These are just worth every penny. 5Quite handyThey are a little pricey, but I bought a package 3 years ago and I just ordered another, splitting it with another contractor. I reuse them, so a little "can" lasts quite a long time. I primarily use them for caulking. No more putting masking tape over the ends or whatever. If you don't do much caulking I think a "can" will last you your life time. I have used them to put on Chanel lock jaws to prevent maring tub spouts, shower heads and things of that nature. If loose my sharpie cap in mud or blow in insulation, I just use one of these. They are pretty dang handy.5These Work Pretty Well - But There is A Better WayThe Little red Caps are a great idea. They are easy to use, but putting them on without breaking them takes a little practice. They preserve the unused caulk for quite awhile. I keep they on hand because they are quick and easy. My only complaint is the cost. They seem expensive for a small container of rubber.There is a very low cost alternative that preserves the opened caulk for the life of the original product. Seal the open end of the caulk tube with hot glue. The hot glue seals completely and is easily removed when it comes time to use it again. This takes a little longer than the red caps but it is less expensive and more effective.4Like little condoms for a tube of caulkThe Little Red Caps remind me of little condoms. You place it on the end of the nozzle of the tube of caulk and roll it down. It's a nice idea, but I think that the caulk still begins to harden/cure underneath it. I used a couple on tubes of silicone caulk. After a few days, I rolled off the Little Red Cap to try to find that the somewhere down the nozzle the caulk had cured. I had to use the puncture tool on the caulk gun to start the flow of caulk. Not a big deal; there didn't appear to be any hardened bits of caulk in the nozzle, and; the caulk did flow easily once I used the puncture tool. You do have to be careful if the nozzle is cut to a point. The point will cut through the Little Red Cap and you'll have to throw that one away.3Be careful putting on the cap and don't expect longevity. These are kind of a nifty idea if you don't pay too much. On caulk cartridges, however, I would only use them as a very temporary cap. The angle cut tips can be sharp and I noticed after a few days the rubber getting thinner. I do like using them over plier jaws for non-scratch work, but for cartridge caps the best one I've used is a short black cap with a peg inside that the big boxes carry. I also have a large yellow cap which works, but none are perfect. They're better than the old nail and duct tape though. 3Simple, but they worked perfectlyWho would have thought that a condom for a caulking tube was a practical idea? Well, they really do work amazingly well. I just got done re-using a tube of construction adhesive opened in the Spring of 2014 that was sealed with one of these and it was still in perfect condition. Sadly, I bought a pack of 35 back then and managed to lose it somewhere among construction detritus after only using a few. So, here in 2018, I bought a new package (the smaller one this time) so that they would be on hand. Now to find someplace to put them where they won't get lost...5ABSOLUTELY AMAZING = keeps silicone tube fresh for a year -- with intermittent use !I have tried everything over 35 years to keep from wasting half used tubes. I bought these in 2017 -- and have used them on caulk. silicone, roofing cement, etc. When the red cap "condom" is removed, there is 3/4 inch of solid - then the good stuff. I sometimes use small screwdriver to remove the plug.$$$$$$ ===HINT FOR USE ===$$$ -- After at least 25 applications, I have learned to start it on the erasure end of a pencil -- the proper side for application isn't obvious. By starting the "condom" on a pencil you will determine the proper application -- and I leave a little of the end unraveled -- it's easier to apply to a tube with a large end.This stuff is the "real deal" -- I bought 4 - in case they become unavailable in the future. AMAZING.AY - 45 year woodworker, and home repair person.5Pardon the pun, but it works! What can I say, it's a condom for caulk. It started out as a novelty item but seems to actually work very well at keeping the tubes from drying out. Yes I put a screw in the end first then slide the prophylactic over it, and during the day using it I just slide the cap over the tube between uses. What started out as a kinda funny thing to show the guys has proven itself to be useful in the workplace. Re-useable too, more than I can say for it's larger cousins.... 5Priceless!I love these little things. I used to battle the tool crib at work to keep these on hand. Sometimes I won, sometimes I lost, but once enough folks got onboard with bringing the tool crib their dried up tubes with tape, screws, and the standard hard plastic caps on them, the shop found a way to "fit them into the budget."There are definitely functional alternatives, but if you're doing any type of finish work, these make a quick and easy seal that doesn't blow out the applicator tip and works effectively. No fiddling with pulling out dried bits of goop, no mangled end from driving in a screw. They're fast to throw on and take off and get right back to work, and time tends to be money. I keep a can around the house, and they more than paid for themselves in the first tube of high-tech sealant they kept alive for a couple weeks when weather wouldn't cooperate long enough to get outside and work.5These are great! If you want your caulk to last two ...These are great! If you want your caulk to last two or three times longer add some aluminum foil to the tip before applying this cap. Aluminum is a much better moisture barrier4Condoms for Glue TipsI was tired of having to throw away my small silicon tubes because product would not come out. I tired putting pins and nails down the tube and even warming it up and I still had no luck. I would end up pressing so hard out of frustration that the tubes would explode and I ended up with a mess.Installing the Little Red Caps was not a problem and I can see why they would work. In reading the reviews about people having issues with it "melting" on them, over a period of time, I would guess that to have been very warm storage environment. . For now they look like they will protect my existing glue tubes and I will update if anything different.5
