I can't see it really working well for dirty windows, maybe for shop fronts that are done weekly, but not normal house windows..

why did he not do a proper demo of showing the wagtail cleaning the glass and show that theres no need for detailing

The way the rubber sits inside the clip gives the same effect as notching the rubber i would think

The idea being the missing corner allows the rubber to go over the seal

However I have tried notching rubbers and polzn bladz has done vids showing it doesn’t work at all and leaves a line all round the glass

I read it was a pre-made dog ear channel. It was at the Dorset show.

If you have a good look at the Wag you'll see it's just, once again, a variation on a theme using cobbled together bits. The end clips are just bits of blue clip that normally have Velcro on them to hold the pad on a Combi. Sigh! And this is the revolutionary new one...:-(

As Tuffers says.......the ends of the channel are just pre-bent (dog-eared).

 

Myself and Boacity already have these pre-bent channels on our Unger Ultimate Sqeegees :P:D.

I think it would be an excellent squeegee. After all, it's an ergotec but lighter and stronger.

 

But if that is the exact same mould of the dog ears they are putting on the new channel, it's going to be pretty disappointing I think

They're not just a 'collectors item'....believe it or not, but some people bought these and actually use them on the job, and they say are great to use (must have more money than sense :sad:)....I don't use mine, as I prefer to use XL Handles as I have big hands.

 

The Unger 'pre-bent' channel works fine too, but you need to keep the rubber cut short close to the end of the channel.
