    This is a video made about 2 months ago.
    Showing it now as there was no interest in it from the manufactures
    Know it looks rough but it works like that as is.
    But when designed better it will look all together different.

    I'm sure the likes of moerman would be willing to listen if it could be proven to have positive ergonomic benefits to users.

    As said this a basic proto type and works.
    And once redesigned it will be able to be used many different ways.
    And yes Smurf it is ergonomic handle and it works better then the standard handle grips.
    People have asked why I continually making these DIY ideas.
    Easy have arthritis in the hands, wrists and found the standard handle grip cause pain when using.
    So designed everything around that to make it easier to use a squeegee including the swivel squeegee.

    Hey have no problems when using the tools now.
    Just want to see if a manufacture are willing to make them .
    Then more people will not have to put up with hand tools that are not ergonomic and lead to have RSI or people that have trouble gripping the handles.

    You think there would be a market if I just make them a swivel type handle with universal clamp, handle grip plus quick - lock connection on it.
    All heavy duty of cause.
    What do you think people would pay for something like that.
    Just asking.

    As soon as you share an idea you then can't patent it. A manufacturer can then make these without having to seek permission from yourself and will make all the money.

    Patent it then sell either the design, or the rights to make it
