These reusable little red caps are ideal for keeping glue, caulk, or other liquids from drying out or evaporating. The caps provide a tight seal and are flexible enough to fit a variety of dispenser tips. Just unroll them over the top of the top of the dispenser. Flexible to fit various sizes of dispenser tips.
For the first time ever, I was actually able to use a full tube of caulk before it dried out without having to re-cut the tip. Slip it on and squeeze a little caulk into it and you get an airtight seal that lasts weeks. They are also reusable so I could use the same tip to reseal the tube for next time.
I have tried many things on the market, Little Red Caps are the best! Store caulking tubes nozzle down for even better results. I store my used tubes in 2" pvc pipe tubes cut to 4" long & mounted on a piece of pine scrap.
Keeps tubes of caulk and silicone from hardening. Have had it on tubes for two months and they were ready for use with no digging out a hard plug at the top of the tube. Will recommend them to any one. They are easy to use and reuse.
I also use the "Little Red Caps" for fuel bladders in model aircraft. I use them for Pressure Bladders for Model Engine Glow Fuel in SAM Radio Assist Competition. They are excellent in this application. I know of a number of other modelers who are now or soon will be using Little Red Caps for this application.
I have a totally different use for the Little Red Caps. I use them as fuel tanks for model aircraft. Secured onto a fitting with a fuel line attached, they can be filled with a syringe with fuel for an engine. The elasticity of the Red Cap means that the fuel will be delivered to the engine under light pressure, insuring a steady engine run. The Red Caps are impervious to the effects of the fuel, so they last a while. An excellent product!! This is not my original idea, many of us use these Caps for fueling model aircraft that are FreeFlight models. [no radios]
I love this product. When I was finished with one of my projects, I would stick a screw or a nail in the tip. Then, when I was ready to use the caulk again, the screw or nail would be stuck in the harden caulk. This product will save me from throwing away a lot of tubes of caulk, glue, or anything that comes in a tube. I always clean off the tip before I place the cap over it. That way it is easier for the cap to roll up and you can use it again.
