Caulking can be a messy job. There used to be no easy way to set an applicator down on the jobsite without some of the product continuing to flow from the tip of the tube after use. Inevitably, sealant or adhesive would wind up where it was not supposed to be. Thankfully, Dripless Inc. created the solution!
In the late 1980s, a painter from Sonoma County in Northern California, Gary Finnegan, discovered a way of stopping the product run-on once he released the trigger of his caulking gun. Truly genius, his new invention saved valuable time, money, and energy. In fact, it totally eliminated the clean up required after use of an applicator. Needless to say, people loved this innovation!
Gary was a great inventor and painter, but didn't have much time to market his invention. So, in 1991 a San Francisco Bay Area marketing firm bought Gary’s unique patented tool and Dripless, Inc. was founded. Dripless took the revolutionary caulk gun nationwide and eventually expanded the line to close to 40 models. It has been, and continues to be, quality innovation at its best.
Today we sell our patented line across North America and around the world. With the help of our dedicated community, Dripless enjoys a piece of the American dream as we continue to develop and introduce new, innovative, high-quality tools to our markets.
