Extendable Silicone Nozzles for Caulking Guns Improve Efficiency for Trades People and DIYers


VICTORIA, Australia February, 2013 – After 15 years in the plumbing industry, Alex John was ‘fed up’ with applying silicone in hard-to-reach places with standard rigid and inflexible silicone nozzles. After a serious spinal injury in 2007, the doctors were explaining to Alex what had happened to his back with a bendable ‘demo spine’ when he had the revelation to change the way plumbers, spa and pool installers, and home DIYers apply silicone.

Alex says, “As a plumber I understand how frustrating some of these tricky jobs can be. I wanted to create a flexible silicone nozzle for caulking guns that made my job easier and more time efficient. Having designed an extendable silicone nozzle has allowed me to get more done, in less time and I am proud to release my BENT-OVER Silicone Nozzles onto the market to help other tradies and DIYers do the same.”

Trades people can use these bendable and extendable silicone nozzles for caulking guns for delicate applications where a normal nozzle just won’t do. The Australian-made and patented BENT-OVER™ Silicone Nozzle offers these features:

  • The screw joint allows for attachment to any standard silicone tube.
  • The 2 ball joints allow for movement in any direction. Additional ball joints can be added to lengthen the flexible silicone nozzle, allowing for optimum accessibility and movement.
  • The nozzle can be cut to the desired length.  
  • The bendable silicone nozzles for caulking guns are made from Acetal, one of the strongest plastics available, making the nozzles acid and chemical resistant.
  • They are reusable. Just pull them apart when the silicone is dry.
  • The extendable silicone nozzles come in packs of two, which allows users to lengthen them if needed.

Alex continues, “A lot of people have asked me why I have decided to make reusable silicone nozzles. Basically, it wasn’t part of the original design of the bendable nozzles; it just came out as being important for affordability and sustainability purposes during the design process. With them being made of ball joints, they had to be made of separate pieces, which means if you leave your silicone to dry, it’s possible to remove the dried silicone from each joint and reuse them with ease.”

The BENT-OVER™ Silicone Nozzle, although designed for trade use, also allows the DIYers to get that professional finish. The BENT-OVER Silicone Nozzle is a flexible and extendable nozzle for use with hand held silicone guns (caulking guns). These flexible nozzles allow plumbers, trades people, and home handy men to easily apply silicone and other sealants to a variety of surfaces for a professional finish.

Ben, a plumber and user of these reusable silicone nozzles for caulking guns shares: “The extendable nozzles mean I can reach things easier. The ball joints mean that they are flexible to so many angles you just can’t get with ordinary nozzles.”
