sealant tool
28 May 2013
By
, tottenham
"Nice little tool that saves your finger getting covered in silicone. Use masking tape, fill gap with silicone, dip this in running water and smooth along. Wipe the silicone off the tool using their toilet roll of course ;) when finished' remove masking tape and gentry rub with a wet finger to finish-dont wait too long to smooth with finger or the silicone will ripple looking poo and no tip for you!"

"I'm well past retirement and never used Silicon Sealant before. Bought this little tool and with a couple strips of masking tape did a beautiful job on my both my newly installed new washhand basin and repairing the gungy old stuff behind my old kitchen sink."

Don't use masking tape!
26 Apr 2014
By
, Woking
"I followed the advice from others on here and attempted to use this tool after carefully masking around the area. The results were nothing short of a disaster, where the sealant overlaps the tape you tend to get a ridge and then when the tape is peeled away it ruins the sealant.
I've found it FAR better to apply carefully with no masking tape and smooth with the tool, dipping in water every few seconds. The No Nonsense shower sealant from Screwfix dries very quickly so do a section a foot at a time and work fast, the result is excellent."

"You can apply just enough sealant to provide a very nice even seal without the excessive amount of sealant you so often see on jobs done by others without this tool."

Just about ok
30 Jul 2014
By
, Crewe
"I bought this because it was cheaper that the profiled smoothing kits. It does the job ok but because of the complex rounded profile it's very difficult to get a consistent finish. A very small change in angle changes the sealant profile. I still use very occasionally for hard to reach places."

bit like a prosthetic finger!
20 Aug 2011
By
, Ware, Hertfordshire
"Always managed fine using a Disposable Nitrile Glove and my fingers before but thought I'd give it a go. It was fairly useful when getting to those hard to reach places (e.g. behind bath taps) but to be honest, I ended up going over the rest with my glove clad finger! Not sure if it was worth it or not. Guess I'll just keep trying it out."

sealant tool below average
10 May 2013
By
, surrey
"This tool is pretty lame, i find it puts down a too thin a layer for bathroom sealant .
pay more and use a better tool.
such as uni bonds sealant tools, very fexible rubber and dimensions on corner to assist.
this does not mean i believe that unibond are the best sealant tools . diff jobs diff brands."

Not a good buy
2 Jul 2011
By
, Birmingham
"The shape and way the tool works is acceptable but the big let down was the fact that silicon sealant sticks to the blue finger part. I could hardly believe it. I didn't bother to clean it off after use expecting the sealant to peel away when it had set. However, it was so tightly bonded on, that the tool is basically a write off after one use. The orange handle was better at resisting adhesion than the blue part. Every other tool I've used for this sort of work is made of a plastic which silicon doesn't adhere to.
It looks nice but only works once (unless you clean it very well!)"

"This tool is no better than a finger dipped in washing up liquid. A waste of money in my opinion. The best one to get is the red handled one with a triangle silicon head."
