    I have a cleaning pouch but is it good? I worry it's not big enough! It has two pouches. And clips over my belt which has the 'bucket on belt' on it. In one of the pockets I put the sill clothes in and the 12 inch and 6 inch sqeegees. The other pocket the scrim and micro fibre. But feel it may be too small? If i want to get my sill cloth have to take out the squeegees and it's a pain. Also the sill cloth pouch is so full it makes it hard to get scrim in and out of other pocket! Want to speed up so think need to get this right.

    The pouch belt thingee is an Unger.

    Also I put all my equipment in a plastic container which goes in my car boot. The bucket is in the front with the bucket in a belt and other stuff especially if wet. The dry scrims and sill cloths go in plastic bags behind. And other equipment behind. Is this well organised?

    The bucket on a belt is **** for squeegees, they always fall out! At least in pouch they stay there. There's a loop in belt which six inch squeegee can go in but not 12 incher.

    Yeah u wanna be using BOAB bud really to hold your applicator and squeegee, easier when up ladders(if u use them)
    If u find the pouch too small just buy another, i have 2, one for glass cloth and detailing cloth and another for cill cloths.
    Oh and dont wear the pouch at the front, looks a lot cooler wore at the back! lol :)

    Then ya not using it right mate, is it at front, side, back, is it bouncing about too much.

    I modded my boab and now the 6" I use I slide handle right to end of channel, it doesn't effect how I use it or how well it works as it's so short anyway so it sits in the boab better. 12" shouldn't be falling out mate.

    I put the blades into these bits on the bucket and about half goes in; so handle, and other half of blades is sticking out. As soon as the bucket swings a bit or is knocked they fall out. I will take a photo and show u.

    Think your concentration gong on putting it in the car more than using it looking at your pics set it up to use and then make it fit the car boot could be wrong but seems that way
