Flextension Caulking Tube Tip

We’re willing to try anything that makes caulking easier and gets us back to doing something else. The Flextension caulking tube tip attaches to all tubes of caulk and adhesive. It allows you to spread a bead in places that would be difficult or even impossible to reach with a normal caulking gun. Even though this looks like one of those As Seen On TV products, for $2 it can’t hurt to give it a shot.

A single Flextension caulking tube tip can bend up to 180°, and you can connect two or more Flextension tubes for a longer reach. You can remove and reuse the Flextension multiple times, and the included snap-on cap helps keep the tube from drying out.

For some reason the Flextension is a popular product at many boating and RV online stores. You can also find it at more conventional stores like Amazon. Either way, look to spend about $2 to $3 for one Flextension.

    Cleaning that out once you’re done caulking is going to be a nightmare…

    Another disposable piece of junk to fill up our dumps with.

    Take your 3 bucks and get lunch, then think of a way to caulk the job without leaving crap behind for your grandkids to deal with.

  3. Yeah I’m not exactly sure how you’d clean this out unless you’re using something that’s water soluble. The only other thing I can think of is to keep it connected to the old tube until you’re ready to use it then attach it to the new tube and pump about 12″ of material through it. Not that it would guarantees there wouldn’t be a little bit of the old stuff left in the tube.

    Pierce, I’m not defending this tool, it may very well be a piece of crap, but what’s the difference between throwing this away and throwing out 2 or 3 caulk soaked rags trying to fix the mess you made trying to figure out how to caulk the job?

    Why not just use a drinking straw, or maybe a short section of tubing (fuel line, for instance)? Wouldn’t that be cheaper and just as effective?

    I use a straw taped to the caulk tip, they seem to work well for small jobs. McDonald’s straws seem to be the toughest.
