Takes the mess out of chinking log homes. Others I have talked to used a trowel. My experience with a trowel was working with cement and that was pretty messy. With this device, pop the lid on the 5-gal container, drop this device in, give it a little press and you're ready to load your caulk/chinking/sausage gun. No threading. O-ring design provides quick solid connection. When done for the day and product left in the pail, this device stayed on top of the caulk and moved down with each gun loading. Wet a paper towel, lay it over the connection, put the lid back on the bucket and you are set for the next time you plan on using it. Simplicity.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BC2014 Product Changed
This is the 2nd Cox follower plate that I have purchased, the first one, the welded nut for retrieving the plate when the bucket is empty broke free (poor weld). Other than that, the first plate worked well, leaving little caulk residue on the bucket sides. This one however, does not perform well at all. Apparently, the rubber gasket material has been changed and is not as stiff, does not seal around the bucket walls, and ends up bypassing lots of product on the bucket wall, requiring a lot time for cleanup and results in wasted product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JD34 handle broke before i even used it
The handle gets threaded into a nut which has been lightly welded to the plate. The nut fell off of mine the first time i screwed them together, and the joint looks more like a dab of solder rather than any reliable weld.
I only bought the follower plate due to the comments saying that it was totally worth the money and use of the grout gun was too hard without it. Incorrect - not worth the money and I was able to just suck the grout up into the tube and quickly wipe excess off the end before replacing the cap. I lost no measurable time not having the plate.
My project was a kitchen backsplash ~60sf, so it was a relatively small project - heavy users may find it more important to have the plate but I did not and wouldn't waste money on another one.

Works great for filling a bulk loading gun from a 5 gallon pail.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kris This product is great
This product made loading the caulking gun much easier and saved lots of time. I wish I had gotten it sooner.
