Tackle Tough Sealing Jobs With Ox’s Dual Thrust Caulking Gun
Ox’s Rodless Caulk Gun raised our eyebrows with its unconventional design. Now, the brand turns to a more traditional caulk gun blueprint while still giving you the flexibility you need. Find out how the OX Tools Dual Thrust Caulking Gun can help both DIYers and Pros with all of their sealing and caulking tasks.
OX Tools Dual Thrust Caulking Gun Performance
For this caulking gun, Ox implements a dual-thrust formula. You can set the thrust ratio to either 12:1 or 24:1 with the flip of a switch.
If you’re working with thicker caulks and sealants such as construction-grade adhesive or epoxy sealant, you’ll want to use the 24:1 ratio setting. However, if you’re using something thinner like water-based caulk, then the 12:1 setting will work well for you. Just remember, the thicker the material, the higher the ratio should be.
Also, working with corners or at awkward angles doesn’t have to be as much of a hassle with the 360° rotating barrel. All it takes is a twist to achieve the perfect tip angle for the application.
Editor’s Note: I’ve used plenty of caulk guns and they get the job done for the most part, even with thick products. What sets OX’s design apart is that you can apply those thick caulks/sealants with much less hand fatigue or cramping, then flip the switch to use thinner products without forcing them out at a ridiculous pace and making a huge mess.Kenny Koehler, Pro Tool Reviews Managing Editor
OX Tools Dual Thrust Caulking Gun Design Notes
Ox Tools tells us that they used high-quality materials like steel in the construction of this tool. Common impact points like the handle also have a shock-absorbing rubber overlay to increase user comfort and absorb harsh impacts.
Additionally, like many other caulk guns, there is a tab on the back of the gun that allows you to control the inner rod. To push in or retract the rod, hold the tab to unlock it and then push or pull the metal hook to control the rod’s position.
