CMP AW29 12″ Wand Glide-AW29

$178.00

There are two “AW29” wand fit option –  The standard version measures less than 16mm when measuring the wand lip gap from the outside.
The new Wide Fit option features a 17mm or larger gap when measuring the wand lip gap from the outside.

See product photos for descriptions.

Description

Due to countless imported versions of this 12 inch, two jet, S bend classic wand we are now offering two front to back width options to provide a fit that does not stress the glide and seals well along the bottom edge.

You can use a slide rule, a metric measuring tape or ruler, digital calipers or a simple stack of US quarters to determine what fit you need.

Keep in mind all of these wands are made by hand and they will all vary by a millimeter or three.

A US Quarter is 1/16th thick, so if your outside lip to outside lip measurement is 9 quarters thick go with the Standard Fit, if it’s ten quarters or larger buy the Wide Fit.

 

 

 

And just to make it more confusing, the Westpak  “762” look nearly identical to the AW29 but has a different lip design and comes with a WP branded /trigger valve.

 

 

 

 

Check out this video showing how well our AW Glide with our Extender Benders works..

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, 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.  Holes are the best choice 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 “Machs” 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.

 

How to install a External Fit GreenGlide

• A warm glide installs easier than a cold glide and is less damaging to the glide. We suggest boiling the glide in a large pot of water for 10-20 minutes. Teflon has a melting point of over 500º, so there is no need to be concerned that you will melt the glide.

• Use an oven mitt during installation to avoid burns. After heating the glide, install it beginning at one end of the wand lips. With the glide in proper relation front to back, push one end of the glide onto the wand lips at a steep angle. Slowly squeeze the rest of the glide onto the wand until it snaps firmly into place. Once installed, check for fit. The glide should not rock or wiggle on the wand. Prochem Titanium and Quad Jet wands will need an hour or so for the Glide to shrink back to its original shape after installing, due to the big stretch needed to get the Glide off their large lips.
 • On older wands with worn or bent lips, or wands that have been repaired or modified at the lips, the glide may leak too much. After the glide is installed, run a THIN bead of GOOP® brand adhesive/sealer along the front and back edges of the glide (do each side separately) where the glide meets the wand, along the top edge. Leave the ends open for proper vacuum relief. Apply sealant in TWO phases, to prevent dripping. Allow the first bead of sealant to cure for 1-2 hours. Flip the wand over and apply the second bead. Allow sealant to cure for 12-24 hours before use.
• The glide can be removed occasionally for cleaning and servicing the wand by GENTLY prying the glide away from the wand lips with two stiff putty knives or wide flat screwdrivers applied front and back at one end of the wand. Use care not to damage the Teflon material. Ease the glide off, do not force it. Heating the wand and glide before removal is highly recommended, and makes the process easier and less damaging to the glide.
• Frequently taking the glide on and off the wand will result in premature wear to the sealing surfaces.
• The spray jet(s) on your wand may or may not be adjustable. IF you can adjust the jet(s) to just skim the Teflon very low on the glide at the carpet/glide interface, it will optimize drying.

(Hammering or force fitting the Glide will void it’s warranty)

    It’s very nice to be able to pop that glide on and NOT need any gooey silicone to make it air tight. This product is very well made

    I use a couple of aw29 low profile wands mainly in condos and townhouses where space is limited. I like them because they are shorter than my large, high performance wands. AW29’s get a bad rap as they are often sold with portables and cheap truck mounts. Considered to be an entry level wand. When you put a greenglide on it, that changes everything. Makes your extraction more efficient and so much more comfortable to use. You have to use it to believe it. Even with a portable, it will give you better drying times.

    I have already left a review but just want to update. Mikey was good enough to send me a couple of glides including a hybrid glide. I have always preferred slot glides as I felt they removed more water. Not the case. The hybrid leaves the carpet drier than the slot glide. Easier to push, especially with a powerful truck mount. No locking down. I will be looking for hybrid glides for my other wands.

    The Verdict is in !!
    I was not sure if my new GREEN GLIDE was responsible for my faster production time but yes I can say yes it is true !!
    I did my 5 hour monthly account ( have had it over 10 years ) two months in a row because I did not think a new GREEN GLIDE could cut my production time by 45 minutes… but it did!! Not only cut my production time but with the precision air intake it seems to be recovering more fine particulate or deeper down extraction which is making each cleaning easier.
    I do normal vacuuming, prespray and grandy groomer in traffic lanes.. Prochoice products and rinse and extra vacuum passes to help drying process.

    You can teach an old dog new tricks !!
