I had a crack in a fireplace mortar joint which needed repair. I purchased this because I only had 12" of crack to fill and I didn't want to mix up bag mortar (the bag mortar has aggregate too large for the crack).
The tip has a flat spreading blade on the end. Using a standard caulk gun the product pushes out somewhat hard but that is to be expected since your pushing mortar. The hole on the end is already open. Simply poke the film on the inside of the tube and its ready. My cracks were only about 1/16" wide so I pushed out the material and then used my finger to push the product into the gap. A wet rag was then used to clean up any excess on the existing mortar. The color matched well and it took all of 15 minutes. The product does have a maximum temperature, I believe 450 degrees, so take note.

I purchased a couple of these Quikrete tubes today. It does say below the photo that this is a textured product. But the textured is too rough. This makes it impossible to apply the product well when there need to be only about one eight of an inch to touch up in many places. This seems to be about what if being applied in the photo illustration. Hence this product may be OK to fill a bigger and deeper area, for anything less to be repaired the texture fill is too rough.
The flow from the tube is fine, and the price is low, but costly if it does not do the job. The Quikrete dry repair stuff would be better item for this kind of repair

The Mortar repair was easy to use and once done I fell in love with my brick wall all over again! I couldn't even tell where I did the repair at, it blended in so well!

We had a gas fireplace installed and detailed around the fireplace box with Colonial Collection Thin Brick Flats from Home Depot. With little kids and spotty free time to make progress, I wanted to avoid the set-up and mess of mortaring the gaps in our brick. I used this mortar repair to finish the look of the mortar. My gaps were about 1/4" wide and the thin brick is only 3/8" deep, so application was easy. I ran over the seems with a rounded mortar etching tool and the finished product looks great.

Acid rain got to my chimney and I saw this at the Depot and thought I would try it as apposed to mixing up a mess.
I have a air tool that dispenses caulk - so I also tried using that. I cut out the loose mortar with a wire brush on a grinder and then cleaned it with acid then rinsed it off and let it dry before starting.
I was able to squirt it down deeply in the cracks and could fill them to match well. Much more expensive but a better result and much easier. 1 Yr ago

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by susie works pretty well
the product does fill in cracks and hole in mortar between bricks..the problem I found however is getting it onto a caulking gun first and foremost, and secondly getting it to "squeeze" out of the hard tube as its supposed to..a bit of a tedious and time consuming process..also, you must use the entire tube or it hardens up and you have wasted the rest of the product..you cannot put a cap or sealer on the tube as it still hardens up..maybe a correction to the formula would help...
