Tucker rinse bar is awesome but


#41

Yes. World wide.

More scratches from the aluminum rinse bar. This is on a 24 million dollar home. We had demonstrated the risks of the rinse bars many times, but an employee 4 months on the job somehow scratched 7 panes without noticing.


#43

Switched mine to the free plastic replacement. Threw the metal one away. No problems since.


#44

I got one free replacement, but we still have a few other tucker brushes with the aluminum rinse bars. They still come standard on the alpha brushes from WCR. I’m going to try the flex seal idea.


#45

That sucks that happened. How much to replace that glass, or are you going to polish it out?


#46

I have a scratch removal guy scheduled to come out. $250/pane on average.


#47

Had I known, I would’ve paid for you to ship it to me


#48

Why? I would never even risk it. I don’t want any metal edges anywhere near glass.

#50

I would have sent it to you but it was such a good feeling to toss it across the shop into the garbage can. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#51

Shouldn’t be sold if it’s going to damage glass. Buyer shouldn’t have to modify a product after purchasing it


#52

Funny you should mention it, a buddy of mine just mentioned a couple weeks ago how the new Tucker Bar ended up scratching a plate of glass. It was most likely user error (I have used one with that on there), but nonetheless it IS a metal and will scratch…crazy to see he is not the only one! I’m not used to it, as I’ve always used a aluminum Tucker pole (ASH method/model) which in my opinion, is such a great pole. I love using it, but sound see the idea of the rinse bar being useful!


#53

Well, $1400 later the scratches are removed. Ouch

I found these screws on amazon to be the perfect fit, and they are rounded, which i like better than the hex shape from home depot. It’s a great deal for 100.


#54

You can get them replaced with a plastic rinse bar rather than using the screws


#55

Yes, but the plastic bars aren’t the same. The holes aren’t all consistent like with the metal, creating uneven rinses. Metal is more robust too


#56

when the head breaks off let me know how you get the piece left in the threads out so you can put a new one in

otherwise these have been a perfect answer
