Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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 5 out of 5 by works as described Works great for filling a bulk loading gun from a 5 gallon pail. July 27, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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.
