Small size wagtails- how do u carry yours?

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.

My unger pro pouch has a loop sown on the lower front part..my 6 inch handle goes in there

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.

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)

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.

A cable tie secured to your belt, then another cable tie looped through the first to form a holder for the squeegee handle.

 

I've looped cables on the handle of my bucket (just before where it pivots) to carry another small squeegee/sill cloth.

Also....if you thread the cable tie through piece of hosepipe before attaching to the handle....it stops the handle from flopping right-over making it easier to pick the bucket up with less bending/stooping. The handle can be at any position from just-off vertical with plenty of access for applicator.

 

Same effect as the handle in this Wagtail Bucket Clip pic, secure the hosepipe on the in-side of the handle just above the lip/rim of the bucket...... the further up the hosepipe is attached to the handle, the further the handle will flop-over.

ive several small wags and very useful they are too BUT [ATTACH=full]4835[/ATTACH] they dont fit in a Pulex boab , keep falling out . any of you lads found a nifty way to carry yours ?

 

I've not tried a Wagtail as a small blade, seems a bit of a waste to me. I have an assortment of various sized squeegees. One I always have with me is a five inch, and that goes into my BOAB, I've cut the slots down deeper, and also made it tight, no trouble with them falling out.
