Even with both hands, it would barely come out.

3 Crystal Clear Window, Door, Trim and Siding Sealant is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Paintable Product is not paintable. Applied DAP 3.0 and allowed it to dry for 16 hours. When I went to paint the trim the paint would not stick to the sealant. After 5 hours it you touch the paint or try to put on a second coat it will come right off. Now I have to remove all of the sealant from brand new trim and use a different sealant and repaint all the trim.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dried with yellow tint This product dried clear with a yellow tint to it. I had to scrape it off and replace it because of this. I emailed the company a couple weeks earlier and they never responded to my email. I am disappointed to have spent this much on caulking and have to redo my work. I do not recommend buying this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fails in less than a year I bought this product to seal around a window on our motor home. I read all the reviews here, and the folks that love it really love it. Most of the negative reviews are about how hard it is to get out of the tube, which is very true. But I was willing to struggle with that and pay a premium price for a superior product. It worked and I sealed an exterior mirror as well as the window. Checked it a few months later and it looked clear and I put it out of my mind. Well roll forward 9 months to our first rain and the product has COMPLETELY decayed - it must lack any UV resistance as the MH is parked outside. It turned yellow and cracked and chunks had fallen out and yes the inside of the MH was soaking wet. What really throws me is I was trying to just wipe the wet surface so I could put some tape on for an emergency repair and the caulk remaining is now like goo! That's right like the water is now dissolving it !!! Bottom line is I'm going back to a good polyurethane or butyl sealant - this product is JUNK!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy a case I have been useing this for years. I buy and sell RV campers and Motor homes. they all leak I use this because it works and last. Does NOT peal off. It is crystal clear. I use it on exterior around every seal and window vent etc. Hard to squeeze out of caulk gun but well worth the pain in hand. I'am a 58 year old woman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but uniquely good Last summer I was building a solar air heater and needed to caulk all the seams of the box. I needed something that would make a strong permanent bond, remain flexible and wouldn't shrink when subjected to large daily temperature swings (0F to +140F), and could be painted over the same day as applied. I tend to prefer PU caulks and they would work except having to wait 7 days to paint. So I looked for an alternative. I called DAP customer service, explained my needs, and they told me the 3.0 would easily do the job. So I got a tube and they were right. This is an excellent caulk/sealant for the most demanding applications. They advertise it as a siliconized caulk but it also has PU in it. Anyway, it is expensive stuff, and it may be overkill for some tasks, but this is an excellent caulk that really does what it says. It's the closest thing to a "perfect caulk" I've found yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sealant...if you can get it out of the tube Application temp ~75°F, punctured the foil seal dozens of times. The pressure needed to extrude this sealant almost makes it not worth the results (which are very nice -- weather-ready in 30 mins, great looks). After applying a full tube of it, my hand is pretty sore. It is indeed crystal clear, not milky or cloudy at all, and for that it is a really important product I'm willing to put up with. It would be much easier to highly recommend if it could be applied with some sort of ease. If you don't have a grip of steel, this product will make you wonder if you have an old tube that has hardened in storage. My wife squeezed a couple inches of it out onto fresh window trim, and gave up. So much for sharing the work. Recommended uses: anywhere that truly clear caulk is needed, and you don't mind a 1/2" bead of it. If you want a small (e.g., 1/8") bead, expect very long application times, sore hands and a fair degree of frustration. Largely a relevant product but not at all what I would qualify as a great all-arounder. I would recommend this product for its utility, but with strict qualifications concerning its the high effort required to apply it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, but why change the packaging? This is very good caulk I would say. I put it on some outside windows but didn't need to paint it so I can't comment on that. It stays in place and its' not too messy to work with. The tip design is not necessary as the old style has worked well for many years. With this one you need to unscrew the cap and slice off the plastic nub, but only just above the threads as you need to screw the cap back on. Then slice the tip to the size you need as usual. It works well enough I guess, it just seems they were trying to do something different when everyone is used to the old style where the seal is punched out through the tip. I would buy this again though.
