    As you will see that this swivel can take it.
    Actually using a truck brush but as you will see that it is very versatile.

    Mmmm, In that case at around £30.00....it's too expensive initial outlay for me mate :(.

    I shall continue to make my own swivel connectors for around a £1.00....even if renew my DIY swivel every year, over a 5 year period the cost only works to around £5.00.......that's £1.00 for each year of use ;) :D.

    This swivels.
    Is not pivoting.
    It allows equal pressure on 360 degree of the disc.
    Having better control of the swivel action.
    With a pivoting action the pressure is at a small point of the disc.
    Then you have less control because it tends to wobble side to side when off glass.
    Also you are limed to what pressure you can use and still have control

    I prefer a fixed brush head for washing down fascias & gutters myself as I've tried a pivoting scrub pads and found them useless for pressure and control. Same goes for internal high window cleaning when using pivoting micropads. After saying that though I have not tried a swivel on a brush or swiveling pad holders yet like that so could work quite well.

    Smurf As you seen in the video that shows that it can be used a varied ways.
    You can use it from the side like we did or front.
    And because when the brush turns the handle at the brush end tracks in the groove as shown in video.
    This gives a very positive connection and very good scrubbing power.
    While still have control of which way you want the brush to work.
    Could also attach it to your scrubbing pad holder.
    And final you have the Quick -LoQ connection lets you change you brushes /pad holders in seconds.
    No mucking around with screw on brushes.

    Anyway Richard you don't have to worry about me it just a DIY thing .
    In time someone picks it up refines it.
    Same as this video below was called a Quick Release Connection.
    This is how the Quick - LoQ came about.
    Date when video was put up 7th July 2012

    As I said before Richard I did not get on with a pivot action like the one you sell so each to their own I guess.
