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.
