    Had few people ask how these stay in the channel so tried this.
    Found at the same time it holds the squeegee rubber in as well.

    You know what I was thinking? whether it would be more effective to actually glue behind the top corner of the rubber to the corner of the actual dog ear. Just a small spot of glue. Because I know the liquidator has a minor issue with the rubber sliding under the dog ear, when turning the squeegee, because there is quite a bit of downward pressure.

    Now, I realise you would say that was a silly idea, since it would have its disadvantages. You wouldn't be able to use the other side of the blade, since it would have a spot of glue on it. You'd have to sand some glue off the dog ear clip after it had been used, and it could lead to premature wear. You'd also have to use a pretty decent adhesive, but they do exist.

    this would be on the stock unmodded liquidator of course. But I used this pic of yours, because it was to hand

    That is a very good idea.
    If too much as you said sand it back.
    Would save heating the plastic to bend into shape.:)

    Why oh why are you bending the plastic "into shape" on the liquidator?
    It is already in shape
    All of them now are made with the new tighter clips so any problems are due to technique not the channels
    As the vid i posted shows once you modify them they don't work on all seals
