The Grit Guard Insert – Blue
Protect your paint from swirls caused by contaminated wash water.

Most paint swirls are caused by improper detailing techniques. For example, when you wash your vehicle, dirt and sand get trapped in the sponge or mitt. The first time you re-wet your sponge in the bucket, some of the abrasive particles will come off the sponge into the water. Subsequent dips in the bucket will re-contaminate your sponge. These contaminants will then rub against your paint and produce swirls. You know what they say about good intentions…

To get those particles out of your sponge or mitt, you need the Grit Guard Insert. The raised radial surface fits in the bottom of any 5 gallon bucket and extracts grit from your wash mitt or sponge when you drag it across the Grit Guard. The dirt settles at the bottom of the bucket so your wash water stays clean. The Grit Guard has a radial grid surface that scrapes dirt out of your mitt or sponge. Four quadrants at the base of the Grit Guard calm the wash water and hold the grid above the bottom of the bucket. Dirt falls to the bottom and stays there. You’ll be amazed at how much dirt accumulates in the bottom of your wash bucket!

The Grit Guard is a real paint-saver. But it has a number of other uses, too. Use it to clean paint brushes by running the bristles across the grid in a bucket of water or paint thinner. Clean automotive parts or drain your oil filter. You can even use the four quadrants as a grid when laying tile.



The Grit Guard is solvent resistant and durable. It stands 2 ½” off the bottom of the bucket and measures 10 1/8” diameter, perfect for any 12” diameter bucket. It is available in bright array of colors. The Grit Guard is American-made and patent-pending.

The Grit Guard takes the grit out of your mitt for safer, swirl-free washing. This inexpensive item can save you countless hours and dollars spent removing swirls.

Two Grit Guards are better than one! For optimum paint protection, stack two Grit Guards in one bucket. The stacked grids stand 5” above the bottom of the bucket and stabilize more water. The grit settles to the bottom of the bucket and remains there because the grids prevent the water from being stirred up in the bottom. The addition of a second Grit Guard also provides more clearance between the clean water at the top and the dirty water at the bottom to lessen the likelihood that a stray grain of sand will find its way to the top.

Very Simple, Handy Solution
September 15, 2014
What a great idea. This handy device keeps my wash mitt free of any grit of any kind that's found it's way from the vehicle to the bucket. Very pleased with this purchase.
Pros:
Not expensive, and does exactly what it claims to do.
Cons:
Required upgrading to a standard 5 Gallon bucket (not a huge sacrifice ;o)

support was cracked
May 11, 2014
Base support was cracked because of the way they packed them. Box was so large, Autogeek didn't need to do that.
Pros:
Grit guard is well made.
Cons:
a little pricy

So I just ordered a blue insert to accompany my black one that came with the autogeek bucket set I had previously purchased! After seeing this do exactly what was stated and seeing all of that nasty junk on the bottom, I knew it was saving my paint from that! Great product. A must have for any real detailing fan.
Pros:
Does what it says and is CHEAP!!!

I wish I had know about a product like this in the past, it would have saved a lot of time trying to rid the mitt of unwanted particles!

Overpriced but helpful

With an mf mitt I've started placing both grit guards in my rinse bucket instead of one in my wash bucket. With my merino mitt I keep one in my wash bucket. Works pretty well depending on your was method.
