    This shows the importance of having equal pressure on squeegee rubber when using.
    The end tabs need only minimal pressure to work properly.

    I see you have been busy making your own channel tips.

    So do you find your diy ones work better than the branded one?

    Yes you are right Smurf but mainly for wide body channels as that what we use.
    Done four different versions.
    They all work better as the branded attachment.
    As said 'above that the end tabs only need to be in slightly more in then what squeegee rubber is when using.
    The plus is you do not have to change your technique in the way you use your squeegee.
    Here's one of the videos we did have these on most of the channels at the moment.
    Know it really looks DIY thing but it works. LOL

    And this is another one we tried also works as good.
    Still have made one's where it is a fixed add on the squeegee channel it self.

    I don't think it will be long before sorbo and others start looking into making tips for their channels.
