I have "discovered" a way to "keep" open tubes of sealant for weeks!!

I use a connector like the one in the attached picture over the open tip.

First I put the crimp connector over the end of the dispense tube then shoot sealant in until it squirts out.

I have kept and reused the tubes multiple times and all you do is twist off the connector and start using it.

That works. If I haven't cut off too much of the sealant tube tip, I use a large (red) wire nut instead and it screws right on to the tip. This keeps it for quite a while and you can wrap it with a piece of electrical tape for added longevity.

Those are good ideas. I will try that. I have always used various size bolts to thread into the tip. That works too. I seldom use a whole tube of any material at one time.

Thx Arrowstrean looks like a great product. Look like baby condiments for all kinds of stuff.

Intentional auto correct to not offend.

The black caulk is coming off in strings on my Eddie Bauer wheel covers - or whatever you call them... Black plastic trim around wheel wells unique to the EB.

What is the recommended sealant for this piece of trim?

Thanks in advance. Paula

I had some coming off the seam where front/ rear fender wells came together. I cleaned off with mineral spirits and washed gently the applied the "Adseal" sealant sold by AS. It is gray, but hard to see under the week with a tires blocking.

Adseal is a silicone based material, still un proven in it's longevity. I've seen it on the roof seams of new Airstream trailers………..wouldn't touch it!!!!!! I would stay with proven polyurethanes like SikaFlex that are known to work well.
