    So I wasn't happy with the wagtai channel guys, so a quick dive into the tool box and a self tapping screw into the liquidator channel gave me this:

    It's exactly the same but with a liquidator, much better now!

    All I needed to do was shorten the Velcro clips and drill a hole (used a self tapping screw) through the liquidator channel,

    So much better. image.jpg image.jpg

    Just make sure the screw you use is short enough so that when tightened it doesn't distort the rubber .

    I used the same screw it came with, I only used a self tapper to create the hole so it had a thread..


    It works just as well, and means no detailing, it also feels more accurate, I just couldn't get on with the wagtail channel!

    Over all it's really helped, and is so simple to do, well
    Worth it!

    believe that if i shorten the wagtail screw a tad and file screwtip to a rounded profile it shouldnt ever be necessary to undo it when changing rubber , just pull the rubber past the screwtip
