Product Description

Amazon.com

The Newborn Brothers Gator trigger drip-free hex rod caulk gun features the patent pending, anti-drip gator trigger with a thermoplastic comfort grip ergonomically designed to reduce hand fatigue. Other features include an all-steel construction for increased durability, a professional strength hex rod, and a ladder hook for added safety.

Product Description

The Newborn 930-GTD Drip-Free Smooth Hex Rod Cradle caulking gun has a steel half-barrel frame that fits 1/10-gal. cartridges and has a 10:1 thrust ratio for use with low viscosity materials such as latex. The smooth pressure rod requires less force and is quieter than a ratchet-style pressure rod. The rod retracts after each pull of the trigger, removing pressure from the tube to help prevent dripping. The handle and trigger are padded for comfort. There is a welded plate in the back for securing the cartridge in place. A seal puncture tool and a spout cutter are built into the side of gun for opening cartridges without a knife, and the hook on the back allows it to hang on a ladder.

Caulking guns, also called caulk or cartridge guns, dispense a controlled flow of products such as caulk, sealants, and adhesives from a tube or cartridge. A manual caulking gun consists of a frame which holds the tube, a trigger, and a rod which moves forward when the trigger is depressed, dispensing the product. Manual caulking guns have a thrust ratio; the higher the thrust ratio, the easier it is to dispense the caulk, sealant, or adhesive. Air-powered or pneumatic caulking guns also have a frame and a trigger, but are used with an air pressure regulator that pushes the product from the tube using air pressure instead of a rod.

Newborn Brothers Company, Inc. manufactures sealant and adhesive dispensers and accessories. The company was founded in 1974 and is headquartered in Jessup, MD.

I've always had inexpensive caulk guns. You know the kind. The $3 guns from the home center that continue to pump out caulk at an alarming rate even after you've quit pulling the trigger?

Since I knew I was going to have to caulk all my home's windows (and there are a lot), and I knew a lot of the interior painting I'd planned on doing was going to require some caulking beforehand, I decided to "splurge" and buy a better caulk gun.

Oh my. I am so glad I did.

I used the gun the first time while prepping for a painting job, and it is so nice to have a gun that doesn't exude a thick stream of caulk when I stop pulling the trigger. No more frantically looking for the paper towel to set the end over. The ergonomic handle is another plus. I didn't think much of it, but I have small hands and repetitive stress problems, so it was a relief to find a gun that actually fit. I'd never realized how important that could be.

The other real plus is the permanently attached rod that pokes through the seal some caulking manufacturers have in their caulk tubes. That alone makes the gun worth the price. No more looking around for something long enough to break the seal. And no more wiping the tool off before the caulk gets hard. So nice to have.

So if it sounds like I'm thrilled with this caulk gun, you'd be right. I'm sure there are some negatives, but after always using the cheap guns, using this was just so nice. I won't go back to using the cheapest gun I can get my hands on.

This is my first caulk gun and I'm not an expert at these. I got this one because of the high ratings on Amazon. I really resisted getting a caulk gun because I didn't want to store it in my tool room for what ever reason - it really doesn't take up too much space at all... I always used to use the squeeze tubes, but am now psyched to have this as gets used quite regularly and easy to use.

PROS:
-The grip is very comfortable with rubber cushion - good for short and very long projects
-The moving mechanism is very smooth with a lot of control over how much caulk you squeeze out. Very even and accurate controllability
-Fits all regular size caulk tubes & easy to load
-Has a built in tube de-clog mechanism which I already used to clear out solidified caulk within an older & previously opened tube of caulk (may not seem like a huge deal, but I was looking all over for something long and skinny to jam in there, and it was built in all along)
-No drip - just remove pressure on the trigger and caulk stops coming out

Cons - none

Tip - When opening the tube tip, be cognizant about how large a diameter you will need for the project. Start with a small tip opening and work on the small areas of your project, and then make it larger as needed.

Great for doing painter's caulk on the wood trim after painting a room, or quickly fixing the bathroom sink, or applying construction adhesive / glue, or sealing up & winterizing those electrical outlets and cracks in the structure which allow for thermal & moisture leaks.

If you have ever used a caulk gun and found the dripping after you squeeze the trigger and apply the caulk, messy. Stress no more. This gun is drip-free. I highly recommend it. You will waste less caulk.

I grew up a house painter, as my Dad owned a house painting business - in fact he still does and still runs it at 78 years old! So, I had a caulk gun in my hand since I was 8 years old... and have logged many hours with a caulk gun.

What I look for in a caulk gun is a balance of:
- Build Quality - I want one well constructed of heavier gauge metal, with good welds that won't bust after a few hours use. The gun must be heavy enough not to flex when under trigger stress, but not too heavy that your arm feels it after a while. Finally, the trigger mechanism must be solid, smooth and not be built to break down after a year. Oh, and it must be solid enough to survive short distance falls occasionally off a step ladder!

- Price - of course, this quality usually comes at a price, but you can spend too much on anything - so it needs to hit the "sweet spot" relative to other caulk guns you might compare it to.

- Simplicity - this is borne out of personal preference - many "higher end" caulk guns have all sorts of features, buttons, levers sticking out, with interesting forms that make some even look creature-like. There is nothing wrong with this, many of them have a strong following. For my taste, I like my gun to be solid and simple. Does it have a "poker"? Does it have a way to release the pressure? Is the trigger smooth, and the plunger easy to move back / forth? Will it survive a fall off a step ladder? It is just one of those intangibles - when it comes to caulk guns, I subscribe to the theory that I want less features so there is less to go wrong.

Based on my criteria above, I was impressed with this Newborn caulk gun. Five Stars - It is simple, solid and priced well. Give it a look if simplicity and the old time-tested form of caulk guns is what you are after.

Thanks for reading!
