A great tube for my use, once altered
When I first got this tube, I was concerned because I had used similar tubes with the twist on funneling cap and the cap, in the past, always broke where I screwed it on due to the tension of the fluid going through.
I was unable to use the tip to funnel the semi viscous fluid because it might have broken the tip if I had pushed the heavy semi viscous fluid through. To make things worse I had to alter the plastic end of the the tube where the tip screwed on because it was sealed with the same plastic that the tube is made of.
However both of these things actually became blessings in disguise for me, and might be for you.
If you are caulking a soft semi viscous fluid, the tip might work for you.
But if your fluid is like mine, very semi viscous, and you are not caulking anyway, but storing to keep the item inside from drying up, this thing is great. The tip can be used as a way to cap off the item in the caulking tube to protect it from air.
I just push out the fluid without the tip and screw it back on when finished. It's a great cap!
You will still have to find a way to make a hole in the end (not in the cap but in the actual caulking tube- I used a Dremel with a certain bit and it worked wonderfully.).
But that's actually a blessing too because you can set the size based on need.
This is an extremely basic no frills product, but for the right people, it can be extremely useful.
If you are caulking with a very heavy semi viscous fluid, this may not be the best idea in my opinion.
One other thing, do NOT saw off the edge of the tube to make a hole. DRILL a hole in it. Sawing it was very hard to do for me. Then screwing on the connection of the tip, for me, at least, became less secure.
I will certainly be purchasing this again.
