    Just wondering when I'm doing windows off the pole and after scrubbing and squeegeing I then wrap the micro or scrim round the squeegee bar and carefully try to wipe around the Edges but have to pull the pole down again and rewrap so was wondering do unger or anybody else make an attachment for long reach trad detailing maybe something like a t bar that has a micro fixed to it better than me currently wrapping around it!

    Wrap your scrim on the pole like a cone so much better for detailing.

    I wrap my scrim around the tip of my pole and then attach it using those cheap plastic clamps...

    I think I bought 5 for a quid or something. They're big enough to clamp round the pole and secure the cloth in place. Works well for me.

    EDIT:-ps...I just leave it clamped to the pole or the handle of my bucket when not in use.

    IMG-20131021-00146.jpg this is a handle I nicked off of a paint roller
    IMG-20131021-00147.jpg some coat hangers have two clips on them i just snapped them off.
    IMG-20131021-00148.jpg then just wrap your scrim/micro cloth around and clip into place .I always leave this in my pouch or bag
    IMG-20131021-00149.jpg then it just slips onto your pole just like your squeegee or mop,hope this helps .

    Ordinarily we don't allow references to the darker side but for some reason I'll let that one fly lol.
