    Bought an Harris pole today from b@q, watched the Wagga video on how to convert to Unger angle and optiloc and will get around to it soon, I put my Unger ergotec mop and squeegee on the pole with the decorators tip and tried on my downstairs and upstairs Windows both applicator and squeegee both half quite a tight fit have they changed the tip as I got the impression that they would be loose and fall off.

    Thanks.
    Den.

    Tried this myself last week. Was a tad too rigid so changed to a wagtail and it's been really good!
    I'm in the process of adapting the wagtail to a wagga special....I.e. Coat hook on reverse to clip detailing cloth and also changing to mop to flip from above.

    Don't permanently fix the hook if you use one
    I tried it but no substitute for teaching yourself to fan properly with it to avoid needing to detail the top edge
    Also it can then be used as a hand tool which can't be done with the hook attached
    Check out polzn bladz vids
