Another source to consider is butyl caulk otherwise known as gutter sealant this is the same stuff only in a ten oz. tube and easier to use it is also more likely to seal around the threads as it is compressed especially if the temperature is cold. another bonus is that it's only about $3.00 a tube from your local lumberyard this stuff will last forever after opening but wont have to be kept in a bag to keep everything from contaminating it.

Butyl Tape & Caulk:
Polyisobutylene cross linked Butyl retains adhesion and elasticity in weather extremes of -60̊F to +212̊F for prolonged periods, is highly water resistant, and because it never hardens completely, it’s often used for sealing joints/seams where the joints are subject to shear. When used with a caulking or backer rod, Butyl also fills larger joints well.
Butyls are messy, and they generally have an unattractive tar-like appearance.
Many boat manufacturers (C&C etc) used butyl tapes between Decks & extruded Toe-Rails. Too bad.

I rarely use 5200. Normally... I stop at 4200, and even that is used sparingly. Other than that, I use 101 or another non-glue product.

One thing that will help remove 5200 is isopropyl alcohol. The other is a guitar string used as a cutting tool.

Hmmm.....

I have used heat to loosen 5200. It can be cut, or heated, or the "debonder" used.

Sometimes, it needs to be done.
