Best rubber for Unger Ninja Channels

Rubber talk: I bought some new rubber for my Squeegee (ettore) and well it didnt fit… What’s the best rubber that will fit in the ninja channels? I work in MO so glass is starting to get hot! Should I be switching to hard rubber and once it cools down go back to soft?
Thanks guys!

You may have more luck with Unger rubber… Just a thought LoL anyhow that’s what I use, unger hard

Haha ya. Didnt know if any other types fit though?

Wow! Dirk Diggler, is that really you? I just that movie with Burt Reynolds and Mark Wahlberg…pretty interesting…lmao!!!

Your entire rubber will fit, you just have to work at it a little by little. I do it!

Dirk, the problem I had with the Ninja channels was that the clips kept coming open at the most inopportune times. I happen to like Ettore rubber the best and so I tried it with the Ninjas. Because the bead is bigger it helped a lot but didn’t solve the problem for me and I have moved on. Wet your rubber with some solution and I don’t think you will have a problem getting it to slide in.

Hot for where I’m at is 90 deg so I don’t have much use for hard rubber. I have a bit that I would send you to try if you PM me.

Thanks guys. While we are on topic what is considered the best rubber?

I use the Ettore 18" rubber for all my channels, including my Ninja.

That way I only have to buy one size and type of rubber for residential and commercial work. Then cut the rubber according to the size channel it goes in
