    This very simple swivel connection will make it easier to use your water fed brushes.
    Have complete control of the brush on the pole.


    People wanting to make these swivels you don’t need anything special.
    Is all basic mechanics’ most people will be able to make these.
    Using tools you already have.
    Also not limited to just water fed brushes.
    Can have on other tools that other wise use or need a swivel action that is more direct easier to use.
    No flopping around hard to control swivels.

    Here is a swivel on water fed applicator.
    Making it easier to use move it any way you want.

    Thought would tell what we have done here.
    First have it so to be able to change you scrubbing pads in seconds.
    This way you can use the right pad for the job at hand.
    Where the pad is to be held will have cushioning under it so to have better scrubbing power.
    (The cushioning does not hold water)

    Here you see it is possible to attach a wagtail handle to these swivels.
    Let you have better control of your brush.

    Now that's a very good idea. I've been wanting something like this for ages. What's the difference between the wagtail version and the standard version? Where do they retail from? And am I seeing correctly that they will push fit onto your existing quick release gooseneck?

    Here you can see the versatility of this swivel bracket.
    This just shows you some of the window cleaning tools you can adapt it to.
    But believe there are many other applications on different tools as well.
