Why do I need a caulking gun?

Caulking guns are the only way to apply products such as sealant, silicone and adhesive from a tube or cartridge. All Defender® Fixing Silicone Tubes must be applied using a caulking gun – the adhesive cannot be squeezed out by hand. If you do not already own one, purchase it with your bird spikes so you can get installing as soon as your order arrives.

How to use a caulking gun

Heavy Duty Professional Skeleton Gun - Photographic Installation Guide

A caulking gun is a simple tool that allows silicone, adhesive or caulk to be pushed out of a plastic tube or cartridge. All Defender® Bird Spike Fixing Silicone is provided in a cartridge and cannot be used without a caulking gun.

Step 1 – Prepare the Defender® Fixing Silicone: Before you put the silicone in the gun you will need to remove the sealed top to allow the glue out of the tube. This can simply be cut off with a Stanley knife. Once complete, screw back on the application nozzle. This is supplied with a pre-cut hole, however, for bird spike installation we would advise cutting the nozzle at a slight angle and about 1cm down from the tip. This allows for a 1cm diameter bead to be applied to the bottom of the spikes, for perfect adhesion to most surfaces.

Step 2 – Loading the Defender® Fixing Silicone into the caulking gun: Place one hand on the trigger and the other on the metal rod coming out of the back of the gun. Using your trigger hand push your thumb onto the metal release pad and firmly pull the rod back as far as it will go. Place the application nozzle through the circular hole at the front of the gun and secure it in place by pushing the rod inside the bottom of the tube. Give the trigger a few squeezes until you start to feel some resistance.

Step 3 – Time to get installing: Use the caulking gun trigger to gently squeeze Defender® Fixing Silicone onto the base of the spike. When complete you can release the glue by pressing the thumb release tab and pulling back the metal rod.
