    Nice paul
    I made my jubilee clips smaller as the handles were jumping out
    Good idea

    My jubilee clip mod is fine now i made em a lot smaller
    Had to squash the end bit against the clip and tape it well to stop them sticking out but is working well
    When will a manufacturer cotton on to this sort of idea

    Nice one. Is your small applicator a 6" davey or a mod?

    It's a mod..think it is about 5.5 or slightly bigger
    It was a 6 that i cut just a touch to fit certain georgian windows i had to do
    All my channels are mods

    Having done a bit now, I think a 6" or thereabouts is an essential. I seem to be managing without a big one or large squeegee for patios, but if I were doing them all day, I'd probs want big too

    All day today i had the 5.5, 10×2, 12, 14 and 18 all on my belt
    And used every one of them
    The small one is brilliant for the little openers rather than use one that is too big to use properly
