Measure the metal lips before ordering this Glide to determine if you need the older “external” fit or the newer “internal fit” option.
Fits both 1.5″ and 2″ vac tube versions
Please note that this wand is constructed by sheet metal and welded together by humans. There are slight to moderate differences from wand to wand so Glide fit can vary.GreenGlides does our best and 80% of the time the Glide will fit snugly and perfectly. Ten percent of the time it may be a bit loose and the other ten percent, a bit tight.
If the Glide is loose you can gentley squeeze the opening in a bench vice to narrow the opening or use Shoe Goop type silicone to secure the Glide.
If the Glide is too tight to install, use a box knife to very carefully trim the Glide material where it is getting hung up.Trim a tiny bit at a time. You may also be able to pry the wand opening with a pry bar.
We apologize for the headache but these things are out of our control
Feel free to call Mike @ 775 552 5429 for advice if you’re unsure on how to proceed.

Slot Glides– The best choice for dirtier carpet that has debris in or on it and for cleaners who prefer some resistance or grab at the carpet to wand interface. Also, our Slots have recessed bridges so there are no lines left in the carpet when the glide is new. As the face of the Glide wears down the bridges can be recessed again with a knife, razor or Dremel tool. FYI, 80% of our Glide sales are Slots.
Hole Glides- The easiest to push and the best choice for cleaners with back pain, elbow, wrist, and shoulder issues and for those wanting the quickest dry times. Holes are also great for cleaning area rugs on location as the rug won’t lift up as you clean the edges and corners. Optimum for wool carpet and rugs. Dry soil removal prior to wet extraction is a must in most cases. The best choice for portable extractors too!
Hybrid Glides- Fits in between the two above, easier (some say much easier) to push than a Slot but dries slower than a Hole. Wands with large vacuum chambers such as Evolutions, SharpShooters, AW29s and the PMF Mach 12 &15 perform noticeably better with a Hybrid. Some debris can be extracted through the slot portion of the vacuum pattern, unlike our Hole pattern, but dry extraction is still recommended. This style leaves lines on some pile types and may need to be groomed after cleaning.
