Ninja Channel Modification [Luke the Window Cleaner]


#1

Are the end clips worth keeping? Nice mod Luke.


30 degree cut Ettore channel
#2

I tried this mod but instead I used the unger green clips. My only issue is I seem to be scraping at the frames with the channel. I have been using the moerman liquidator for a while, perhaps it’s my technique or the rubber is to short at the edges. Any suggestions?


#3

I cut my channels at a 30* angle and that solves that problem.


#4

Nice one Luke. Nothing new under the sun though. Here’s one from Mark from a few years ago. Green clips. Much tidier…


#5

Here we are using piece zip tie on under side of the squeegee rubber.


#6

Could I see a picture as a reference?


#7

You mean something like this??


#8


#9

I could try doing this to my unger ninja. Better get the file out and see how it goes.


#10

Hey Luke and Reanna: do you like the modified Ninja better than an Ettore Super Channel. I heard Reanna say it’s lighter in the video but is it better?

@Luke

Mike, how do you cut it? All the way to the top or so you spare a few millimetre straight at the end?
I hope you understand what I mean😊

Edit: now I saw your photo👍


#12

File it like a liquidator channel I believe. I’ll see what I can come up with.


#13

Do people have clip problems because of the BOAB or because of wiping the rubber with a rag? Or submerging else?

I’ve never had a problem with the clips but i use the ninja boab and dont rag the rubber. Curious.


#14

Hmmmm I think I need to go to lowes real quick and get a new hack saw blade so I can try this :thinking: I’ll be back.


#15

Wouldn’t it be best to try it without the clips first? Prior to any hacksaw mod? That way if you don’t like without the clips then no biggie, just put em back on :slight_smile: just sayin’


#16

I did it! I’m actually pretty happy with it. How have I not thought of this yet? Either way, not bad guys, not bad at all. Went out back and tested it on my sliding glass door.


#17

Seems to me it would be much easier to just buy a legend channel, rather than hacking up a Ninja channel.

But what would I know…


#18

What’s better a Legend Channel or a modified Unger Ninja?

I love my modified Ettore brass channels. I wonder if the Ettore Super Channel would be better if it was modified to be more like a Legend as well?


#19

yeah i saw this years ago…i wanted to try it with ettore clips


#20

ya i guess i just prefer the ninja to the legend …but what do i know
