The first pad
washing system that works with ALL polishers!
The Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer
is the first and only pad washer that cleans all types of buffing pads on dual
action and random orbital buffers. Clean foam pads, wool pads, buffing bonnets – you name it! The unique design
of the Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer accommodates any dual action polisher
to clean pads without even removing them from the machine!
The Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer uses
the power of your polisher to agitate pads. You don’t have to scrub and scrape –
just let the polisher do the work for you. Insert the pad into the pad washer,
turn on your polisher and let the grid insert clean and dry all your
| Unlike other pad washing
systems, the Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer works with all polishers. The grid insert’s large diameter allows pads of all sizes to make contact,
no matter how big the orbit. Even the Cyclo can be used with this pad
washer! The opening of the pad washer is adjustable to accommodate any pad
size and polisher. Clean pads on your Porter Cable 7424XP, FLEX XC 3401 VRG,
and Meguiars G110. The Grit Guard Universal Pad
Washer accommodates all dual action polishers.
Clean pads with the Splash
The grid insert’s height is
adjustable. Simply press your polisher down until the pad is in the water
and making contact with the grid insert. The grid insert is supported by
springs so no manual adjustment is needed. Just press down and turn the
polisher on at its slowest speed. The downward force pumps water upward to
help clean the pad.
The Grit Guard Universal Pad
Washer includes the pad washer complete with Splash Guard, the grid
extension, a Gamma-Seal Lid, and a 4 oz. spray bottle of Pad Renewing
|The grid extension can
be strategically placed on the grid insert to provide more agitation
on heavily soiled areas of the pad. Position the grid extension in the
middle of the grid to clean the center of the pad. Position the extension
off-centered to clean the outer edge of the pad.
The Gamma-Seal Lid allows you
to seal the bucket in order to keep dust out, or to store water
or pad cleaning fluid for later use. (Some pad cleaning concentrates can be
reused several times. This is especially convenient for professional and
mobile detailers.) The Gamma-Seal Lid forms a water-tight seal so you can
transport the pad washer without spilling its contents.
The grid extension
can be positioned anywhere on the grid insert.
The Pad Renewing
Solution works with all types of pads and polishing balls. The
biodegradable cleaner removes petroleum and water-based car care products
from wool fibers and porous foam. Before using the Grit Guard Universal Pad
Washer, spray the pad with 4-5 spritzes of Pad Renewing Solution. It will
help break up oily residues inside the pad as you operate the pad washer.
Not only does the
Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer wash pads, it dries them! Simply lift the pad out
of the water and raise the speed setting slightly. Allow the pad to spin
until the excess water has been removed.
Try this advanced drying technique: Remove the grid extension from the
grid and place it where the Splash Guard lid says “Dry Pad Here”. Operate
the polisher while pressing lightly against the Extension in order to dry
Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer works with rotary polishers, too. Clean pads on your
FLEX LK603VVB, Makita 9227C, DeWalt 849, or any other high speed rotary
machine. The same instructions apply.
The Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer
is incredible! It prolongs the life of your pads, saves you time when
cleaning up, and it works with any polisher. If you are in search of a
convenient and efficient way to clean buffing pads – no matter what kind of
polisher you have – the Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer is exactly what
you’ve been looking for.
Move the grid extension to the area
marked on "Dry Pads Here" and work the pad against it to remove excess
Pad Cleaning Tips:
- Keep the pad’s Velcro® brand backing
out of the water when using the Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer.
- When using a dual action polisher,
make a mark on the backing plate with a permanent
marker. This mark will indicate to you when the pad has made a full rotation.
If it is not rotating, lighten up your pressure.
- Fill with the appropriate level of
water. Press down on the grid insert until the springs are fully
compressed. Fill until the water level reaches just above the Insert. When you
press down on the Girt Guard Insert with the polisher, the springs will pump
water upwards to the pad.
- Always operate the pad washer with
the Splash Guard closed.
- For heavily soiled pads, spin the pad
in the pad washer for 10 seconds to thoroughly wet it. Then spray on the Pad
Renewing Solution and let it penetrate for 1 minute. Then use the pad washer
again to clean the pad.
- Always use the Grit Guard Universal
Pad Washer with the polisher on its lowest setting for cleaning. You can use a
slightly higher setting for drying.
- Move the polisher around inside the
pad washer to be sure all parts of the pad are cleaned.
