    i dont use wagtail but yes my four inch squeegee just kept falling out the boab and annoyed me....its now kept in my ex scrim pocket...i say ex scrim as i use the taytay method these days...ahh i miss scrim...i must go back for old times sake...:D

    the drawback is....the blade gets covered in all the crud that finds its way into the bottom of my pockets...so you do have to rinse it quite often...

    Someone asked this once before about the small 6 inch squeegees falling out of your boab. Move the squeegee down so instead of it looking like a T make it look like a L. Best way I can explain it. Takes a bit of getting used to but don't fall out.

    I have one the width of the handle I use on frames and sills to remove excess water before wiping.
    Lives in one of my rear pouches (I have 3 pouches on my belt)

    I've only had my unger pouch about a week and that's exactly where I put my 6" squeegee.

    And I do this on my 10"er. Working with an offset handle is a bit weird but I started doing this early on so I'm used to it now.


    Its funny how the same solutions pop up across the forum even though its not common knowledge.

    If you're ever looking for something a little more compact, I used to use one of these;

    Its a grout squeegee. The plastic part used to also come in useful for scraping stuff off upvc. Cheap as chips too.
