Jim, what exactly are you rebedding? I would not think of 5200 as caulk, but as permanent, very permanent, glue. You will likely have to break the item to get it off again.

I've caulked so much stuff over the years, that I'm probably personally responsible for at least one 3M executive bonus payout. However, it doesn't last as long as more modern solutions. Particularly, for hardware that is stressed, like handholds. I'm a convert to butyl tape.
