Caulks, adhesives, and sealants that don't freeze


I hate going out to my truck to grab a tube of caulk on a cold day just to find that it has frozen. What a hassle. It's nice to be able to keep a stock of them in my truck, but if they're frozen, there's no point. So do you guys have any recommendations for caulks, adhesives, and sealants that don't freeze or have a really low freezing point?

Never heard of one.
I used to keep them in a metal toolbox and just bring them at night.

I bring them inside this time of year too. If I forget those tubes fit nicely on my dash over the defrost vent.

Never heard of "no freeze caulk"

Yup, you're only option is to bring 'em in. I've tried an insulated milk bottle container and that keeps 'em from freezing if it doesn't get below 20 degrees. You could also try a cooler (that you put drinks in) to see how that works. I haven't tried that one.

Good call guys, I currently keep them in the metal box on my truck. I guess I'll just have to bring them inside at night!

I have an old non working insulated fridge In the garage. The light works and I've removed the shutoff so it's always on. My stuff gets cold but it doesn't freeze. Definitely safer than my old wooden box with a trouble light thrown in it.
