A caulking gun can be a clumsy thing to deal with when your hands are full, especially if you’re on your way up a tall ladder. The drawing shows how I deal with the problem. I appropriate a hook from a shower curtain and thread it through one of the belt loops on my pants. Now I have a sturdy hook to run through the hole in the handle of my caulk gun. Job done, the hook goes back to its job holding up the shower curtain.
