Description

The wand that started GreenGlides and still one of our best sellers!
Recently re-engineered to fit better and is easier to install and remove.

DO NOT FORCE FIT OR INSTALL THIS GLIDE WITHOUT WARMING IT UP IN BOILING WATER OR WITH A HEAT GUN. See below for instructions

Note: There was a production run of these wands that came out about a millimeter narrower front to back (outside lip to out side lip). Most “Ti” owners know which version they have by now, but if you’re buying a GreenGlide for the first time, please measure (see photo below) to determine which version you own.
The Hard Surface Glide fits both versions.

Includes a set screw to prevent side to side movement if you cut a notch in the spray shield/wing

 

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

 

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.

  2. matt (verified owner)

    Another well made product that saves my shoulder and delivers awesome water recovery. GreenGlides are the only way

  3. Travis McAdams

    Great product every cleaner should have especially a life saver to clean hard surfaces especially tile & grout thanks Mike for the fast shipment

  4. Tom Cermak (IICRC Instructor)

    I’ve been using my Prochem Ti wand since 2006, and I wouldn’t even consider using it without a glide!
    Faster dry times, ease of use and allowing me to maintain proper form while using the wand for better ergonomics are all things that make a glide a necessity in this day and age.
    Work smarter not harder should be their motto!

  5. Andrew O.

    We use the slot and hard surface greeglides with our Aerotech machines. Our team cleans primarily commercial facilities, having a durable glide that lasts is imperative to our technicians; especially with the long hours. We are able to accomplish more square feet per hour with less body fatigue. With many buildings switching to LVP, we are able to also service these floor types with the same wand and equipment, without loosing out on dollars. We wouldn’t use our prochem titanium wands with out the addition of the green glide!

    One of the best tools ever created for carpet cleaning. I won’t clean without one on my wand
