I recently watched a video on Youtube where a window cleaner uses a zip tie to dog ear his channel. He was not doing this on a Unger S channel in the video. He did mention you have to find the right zip tie thickness for it to work. Has anyone ever tried this before on a Unger S channel? If so, what thickness zip tie do I need to buy?
Easiest way to get a dog ear effect on an Unger S channel is to use Ungers green plastic clips. The clips in behind the rubber will push the rubber ends forward. Also, don’t forget to trim your rubber width to about 1/16" on either side.
Chad, I think that video is more for wide body channels that you can’t bend. Search MyWagga on Youtube. Don’t worry about cutting the slot for now. Start with bending your ends a bit at a time and work up. to much and you will skip in the middle, but you can bend them back.
I couldn’t endorse this more. I do all of mine this way.
I will have to give that a try. I have heard of people using the green clips on the side facing the glass and they kept falling off. It does sound better to place them on the front side facing you as you squeegee. This will push the rubber forward and put pressure on the end clips. Hopefully keeping them from falling off.
Did the end clips stay on when you placed them on the front side facing you as you squeegee?
