    I know to wrong to carry a squeegee in one hand and a T bar in the other climbing up the ladder but I just don't like wearing the bucket all day carry my squeegees when I am working.

    I thinking of getting something like this below http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00KS6RUX6/ref=redir_mdp_mobile/280-4765328-2463868

    It maybe the worst idea ever but there is a hole on my squeegees handle and was thinking of getting those hook though the squeegge handle hole and clip it to my trouser.

    What you reckon?

    Bits dangling down may catch on your ladder. Also I’m thinking using those would not be the quickest way to work compared to using a boad?

    Guess you will have to try some to see if it’s any good or not.

    Saying as it is, think you may well be right.

    It's the position of the boab which is hard to get used to
    Try having it more to the side if it feels like it is in the way

    been going up the ladder for years without the bucket belt, tried to get used to it every now again but always keep taking it off. I find it distracting knocking my leg going up the ladder.

    Less distracting than trying to unclip them off metal clips while up there

    raise it up so the top of the bucket is fixed level with your belt. theres a few ways of doing this , it stops it swinging for one thing and all round improves the experience
