Not Happy With Clamps On My New Clx..!


Shine Window Cleaning

Recommended Posts

Well, I'd finally managed to save enough £££ for a CLX22, which I received last week.

 

No more messing about with my old Brodex pole(clamps spinning/sections coming apart) for me!!

 

But.....I've been patiently trying to get used to/adjusting my new CLX(with 'new style' clamps) and so far been hugely disappointed!

 

The clamps have a tendency to keep flipping open, sending the other sections crashing towards you- very annoying! Especially the top clamp on the first section(nearest the brush) for some reason. I've tried tightening/loosening the adjustments on it, but you can visibly see the clamp 'springing' open slowly on its own- SO FRUSTRATING! Have to keep dropping whole pole down to re-adjust.

 

Any body else have this same problem, or no a solution- PLEASE!!

Hi There

 

This sounds really strange!

 

Could you email me a photo of this clamp shown in its closed position and its open position. I have not come across this before.

@ shire shine, if you clamp the pole the wrong way round it does spin etc. Make sure the clamp opens to your left.

cheers Tuffers- will be investigating this over the weekend!

Maybe its cause brodex clamps are really good....

 

Never used gardiner poles but ive used other poles and my brodex clamps are good.

hmm....! Food for thought! Will play with over weekend and try to get it working right. Can't fault the pole weight at all, and as for the brush- although I wouldn't use for first cleans, is ideal for maintenance jobs.
