    Rating out of 10: 10

    Review: the tecbuk sidetrack is a solid, quality made piece of kit. My reason for buying this is I have a lot of houses with extensions/conservatories, with windows above. Some I can get going straight over, but some I need to take from either side at angles.. But my problem is trying to reach the furtherest top corners.. Having to hold the pole high above my head so it's nearly horizontal just to try and get into those corners.. The tecbuk sidetrack allows me to hold the pole at angles and keeps the brush straight ( horizontal like it was a normal window ) and I feel that I'm cleaning the window properly and getting into every corner..

    Now before I bought the sidetrack, I tried the gardiners resi neck with swivel. This is for the same purpose, windows. But I found with the gardiners that I could not go at speed, times it wanted to flip itself over, hard to control, hard to straighten brush again, many times Iv banged people windows with the back of the angle adapter as it forced my pole to spin.. I got fed up changing it around after I had used it on the mentioned windows as I just could not keep it on all day. I found myself not using it anymore for these reasons.. So decided to try the tecbuk sidetrack.

    The sidetrack works a lot better. I had kept it on for 2 full days on the pole. For the windows over roofs etc it works brilliant. It dosent take anymore pressure than normal to make the brush adjust into the angles to keep it horizontal. Nor does it take anymore time or messing about trying to get it straight again. It won't move when you don't want it to. For just normal tops I was able to work at my regular speed without the worry of it spinning around and banging the glass. For big panes instead of stepping side to side you can stay in one spot and let the sidetrack keep the brush horizontal.

    It is hard to explain and probably harder for you understand what I am explaining but it just feels great having the ability to swivel the brush.

    Hope i covered it all, But I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend to anyone who uses tecbuk brushes. ( not sure if it can be used on other brands of brushes as its built to fit on to the tecbuk brush stock screws )

    Price, quality and customer service is 2nd to none.

    I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
