Are you tired of opening a tube of 5200 and not being able to use it all before it gets hard.  Go to ACE hardware or to the internet and get something called "Red Caps".  They look like mini condoms(please ladies, no comments about significant others  :)  and after you use the adhesive, pull the long plastic tip off and put the red cap over the opening.  I also squeeze a LITTLE  5200 out around the threads so it will dry on the rubber adding a secondary seal.  I've kept a full tube of 5200 for over 6 months this way.
