So I have two Moerman squeegees with Fliqs but they don't both fit very well in  my BOAB and i wondered if anyone knew any modifications? 

I know Moerman do the dry walker but its a bit pricey and I am not sure if it holds to squeegees with Fliqs?

Make your own from a cheap tesco basics tuperware click lock juice milk jug. 

Remove and sand or grind down where the handle is with a dremel 

Create a belt loop and with a drill mark out 2 horizontal holes and drill out

With your belt loop and pop rivets along with two penny washers rivet the belt loop in place

If needed cut out a squeegee handle slot

You may laugh but thinking outside of the box and innovation goes a long way 

I've made a few and work well .

Heres a great way to carry moerman excelerator w/fliq pad. It is a plastic dry pasta container mod. It will hold up to 14in with no issue (I carry 10in excelerator w/fliq pad daily.)

A little cutting and sanding corner down it will last you for a really long time.

Hope it helps someone, if anyone has questions just let me know

What kit do you work with? Are you trad only or have you got WFP system too? Cheers

Both. Most of my residential is simple one story work that I trad at the moment. Storefronts trad only (safety). Commercial such as hotels and such Wfp.

We'll be working with combined technique. My wife will be doing the trad work on ground level and I will do the top windows with WFP.

Would you not find just doing wfp more beneficial and time saving with a cleaner result and no more soap ingress into the seals and frames

There are many reasons why we settled with this setup. It was a tough call, took me at least two weeks (working on this everyday) to put this together in a way that we'll still have some money to buy food and petrol 🙂 Wife prefers trad anyway, she is happy practising it. And as we all know, happy wife happy life! 🙂9379E437-DC4E-45B1-A1DC-506E28839226.thumb.jpeg.4e7640e7a70e262bc9dfe66d40e3c872.jpeg
