Will the Quick Connect Frames, Handles and Flexi-Duster replace the current line of frames, handles and High Duster?
No, both lines will be offered through 2005. The current frames will be discontinued mid-2006 and the current handles, end-2006. In 2007, it is our intention that only the high performance Quick-Connect line remains. Since the high-performance Quick-Connect items are comparably priced to current frames and handles, changeover should be easier.
Are the Quick-Connect frames and handles interchangeable with aluminum frames and handles in the existing microfiber tool line?
No, the current handles will fit the Quick-Connect frames using the locking nut provided, but the current frames will not fit the Quick-Connect handles.
Are quick-connect systems interchangeable between competitive brands?
In general, quick connect systems are not interchangeable between brands because button placements and hole sizes differ…brands are unique to themselves.
Will all the RCP microfiber pads work with the Quick-Connect Frames?
Yes, all microfiber pads will work across both lines of frames. The new Quick-Connect frames are approximately 1 1/2” narrower in width so there will be more pad available to curl up on all sides for baseboard cleaning and furniture/fixture protection.
Is the swivel joint on the Quick-Connect Frame made from the same material as the current swivel joint?
No, we have strengthened the Quick-Connect swivel joint by using nylon material. This material is also more chemical resistant.
Is there a 24” Quick-Connect Frame without the squeegee?
No, the 24” Quick Connect Frame only comes with a squeegee. The blade can be removed if there is no need to have or use it.
Can the Quick-Connect Frames and Handles be used in MRI applications?
Yes, frames and handles are aluminum; fastenings are stainless steel, both non-ferrous metals. We do not recommend cleaning while MRI equipment is in operation.
Can the Quick-Connect Frames and Handles be used with all Rubbermaid Microfiber Buckets?
Yes, both the 11” and 18” Quick Connect Frames as well as the current 11” and 18” frames will work with all five Microfiber Bucket models.
