Very simple 4200 question

Hey guys

Quick 4200 question. I got a tube from WM. It looks like a normal tube of caulk, except on the back there is a little aluminum piece with a pull tab (basically like a can of coke.) Do I pull this tab and then put the tube in a caulk gun? Or?

I just dont wanna pull the tab and then the whole tube of 4200 spills out!

Thank you kindly,
RG

ON the back or on the end?...Personally I have not seen a tube as you describe....every tube I have used or ever seen has a nipple on one end and a plastic or in the old days metal disk/plunger on the other for the caulking gun to push against.

What you describe sound more like a tube of grease then a tube of 4200...with a pull tab to remove one end completely from the tube....I have never seen that with 3M adhesives....unless my memory is really going..

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Yes, pull the tab and remove the aluminum piece. It's a seal that hides the plastic plunger. Remove the aluminum seal, insert tube in caulking gun, caulking gun depresses the plastic plunger. No danger of 4200 coming out the back.

And in fact, there is probably a moisture absorbant bit between the aluminum seal and plastic plunger - take that out and throw it in the garbage too.

Cheers radioguy.

Still, you've probably forgotten more than I know, and would still come out ahead. That's called real-world experience which you've got in spades.
