Flex Shot is a sealant advertised to "caulk, bond, and seal virtually everything." Read my Flex Shot review and observations about its advertising.
About Flex Shot
Flex Shot is the newest addition to the Flex Seal family of As Seen on TV products. Other “Flex” products include Flex Seal and Flex Seal Clear. This product is described by the makers as:
“…the revolutionary super thick rubber sealant that caulks, bonds and seals virtually everything. Flex Shot is so easy to use – giving you a perfect bead every time. And because it’s so thick, you can fill huge cracks and holes, stopping the toughest leaks instantly! Forget about those bulky caulking guns. Flex Shot is the neat and clean way to make repairs with pinpoint accuracy. Flex Shot comes out nice and thick, clings to any surface, then turns into a stretchy rubber seal that’s virtually indestructible!”
The official website is flexshot.com, which was registered in March 2011.
How much does Flex Shot cost?
Flex Shot costs $19.99 plus $9.95 shipping. They also do not let you opt out of the second “free” Flex Shot for another $9.99 processing. This brings your total to $39.93. It is not available in stores as of this writing.
To state again, if you order Flex Shot, you will pay $39.93, not $19.99 as advertised due to shipping costs.
Flex Shot TV Commercial
Here is the current television commercial for Flex Shot, which has been advertising on many popular cable channels, such as CNN.

Flex Shot Review
Flex Shot advertises the promise of easy, perfect caulking. I found it virtually identical to other pressurized caulking cans on the market, which have existed for years. That’s not to say, however, that the product is in any way inferior to other caulking products, but it also isn’t superior. In my tests of the product, Flex Shot performed about as expected, with acceptable bonding properties.
The commercial above, however, asks viewers to take a leap of faith and believe they will suddenly find themselves proficient at caulking, which is not likely to happen. There is still a certain amount of skill required to caulk and, depending on the project, “working” it after it has been applied.
A trip to your local hardware store will yield many caulking options, some which closely resemble Flex Shot, such as DAP’s Kwick Seal or Easy Seal products, which are both under $10.
In the end, it feels like an overpriced pressurized can of ordinary caulk.
Other Fake Flex Shot Reviews
If you’ve gone online in search of Flex Shot reviews, you may have encountered several fake or affiliate reviews for the product. These reviews are not objective because the writer is attempting to sell the product. You’ll often read one of these glowing reviews which end with a links to buy the product. Take any such review with a grain of salt.
Flex Shot performs on par with an average pressurized can of caulk. I found nothing special about its properties or its application.
The product’s biggest downfall is the cost of shipping, which makes this product about double that of similar products. You can find comparable products locally for under $10 with no shipping delays.
