    You can also do this with most other squeegee channels as well.

    Nice vid H MAN

    Just wondering would that type of end tips start to damage the edges of the window frames or do you have quite a bit of rubber overhang?

    Have smoothed the ends.
    Just have the squeegee rubber flush with the ends.

    One of the reasons put these videos up is to address some questions on other posts regarding how to flatten the ends of the squeegee.
    And what the best way to hold your squeegee rubber in the squeegee channel once modified.

    For anyone who didn't notice, the hammering actually spreads the tips of the channel upwards toward the top of the rubber, very similar to the liquidator clips.
    And you have the ability to then add just the right amount of dog-earing for your preference if necessary.
