    If you have had problems using Moerman’s window squeegee with the new liquidator channel try this.

    Also while think of it LOL.
    The angle of the handle to the squeegee channel is around 25 degree.
    It can also be used as a zero degree squeegee as well.

    Seems like there is a confilcting opinion on this: You and I think the squeegee works better at smaller angles, yet other people think the opposite...

    As you said your self that it was the angle of the squeegee handle to the channel.
    If it is between zero and say 25 degrees should work OK.
    Will be making a video show how the Moerman squeegee goes both with the angle and the zero degree angle.

    Might be a silly question but cant you just set the angle from 45 to 25 with the standard handle before having to mod it or did you also flip the handle to try to overcome the swivel issue too as been pointed out by jim ?

    Found when flipping the handle that it seemed to have a lesser angle.
    And also the other angle is zero degree.
    This is what the handle looked like before turning or flipping around.
    You hold it much differently.

    I tried ordering one of these handles but due to limited stock I don't know when it would arrive so I have just had a play about and got my ninja handle to fit

    Ninja handle is for wide channels James. You've got it fitting comfortably?

    Hi Eric yes you need to cut a Pcs of squeege rubber and that sits on the inside of the top clamp . Then it clamps down tight if not tight enough you tighten the screw

    A lot of people rate this handle (channels not so much) and I see they now do 2. Original at 40° and a new 30°... Shame it doesn't clamp out at zero like the Ettore Contour Pro.
