The Grit Guard Insert provides excellent protection against wash-induced swirls by keeping grit at the bottom of the wash bucket. The only thing better than one Grit Guard is two! Choose two Grit Guards of any color to give your vehicle added protection while you wash.

When you use two Grit Guard Inserts in one 5 gallon bucket, the bottom 5 inches of water is stabilized by the Grit Guards' quadrants. This creates even more space for dirt to accumulate and minimizes the chance of dirt rising back up to the top of the wash water. Plus, you won't have to reach quite as far to agitate your wash mitt on the stacked Grit Guards!

The Grit Guard InsertMost 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.  Grit Guard Bucket

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.

Wish I got these sooner

For a while been using two buckets for my washing, and I waited and waited and then finally I bought these, I wish I purchased them sooner. Pulling out my wash mit no longer stirs up the dirt that settled to the bottom of the bucket, and seeing all the crud under the guards makes the purchase feel better.

Good product

It does what it says it does. At the end of a wash you can find all the large residue down in the bottom of the bucket below the grit guard.
