    i leave it on between jobs if tradding, but take off the boab. (it has a quick release buckle thingy)
    But if the next job is WFP then i take it all off.
    I got the braces on my Unger belt as it keeps slipping down on me otherwise

    I'll post my current setup in the belt pics thread. As for routine I have the whole rig permanently on the belt so its all or nothing. Taking just the boab off would be a PITA with the way it sits on my belt. When I take it off, I pour out the dirty water in the boab, and then I have a round builders bucket I dangle to boab and tbar into, with the pouches on the outside of the bucket. That way if the boab spills it doesn't soak the pouches making for an uncomfortable day. I then take the squeegees out of the boab (to look after the rubber) and rest them on the lid of my window cleaning bucket. And the scrim gets dangled in the back of the van on a bungee that I use for hanging up my step ladder. Sounds like a lot of faf when typed but its actually pretty quick.
