Follow plate reduces the mess of bulk loading caulk from pails. Keeps gun barrel clean and prevents air from entering gun barrel during loading. Steel plates sandwich a neoprene gasket that scrapes the inside of a 5-gallon pail clean to reduce waste and keep air and job site debris out of bulk caulk. Threaded cap with gasket in center of pail holds gun solidly. Fits all 2 in. diameter Albion threaded barrel bulk guns.
- How to Use a Follow Plate: Remove front cap of caulk gun and wet the end of gun with water or release agent (50% water and 50% denatured alcohol). Spray or pull water into the gun chamber to lubricate the interior. Seat the follow plate firmly on the surface of caulk or chinking. Attach the caulk gun to the follow plate and lock the push rod. Pull up slowly to draw the caulk or chinking up inside the barrel until filled.
