The Grit Guard Insert - 2 Pack

Choose any 2 Grit Guard Inserts for just $17.99!

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 Car Wash Bucket insert

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 ˝” 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.

Grit Guard!
An absolute necessity for the 2 bucket wash method. I used one in each bucket. It fits perfectly in a 5 gallon pail so that you can agitate the wash mitt and release any particles of grit into the lower part of the bucket.

I couldn't find these guards anywhere, every auto store knew about them, but nobody ever stocked them, or was interested in acquiring them for resale.

Good product-choose bucket carefully
I think this product will work great, seems to be sturdy. Be aware though that it doesn't fit all 5 gallon buckets. it did go all the way to the bottom of the Walmart, True Value Hardware, or Home Depot buckets. It did fit well in the Lowe's bucket.

Leave the grit at the bottom.
This is a great idea. They are well made and fit the bucket to perfection. They keep the grit away from your wash cloth or mitt. They make a great gift for Christmas or not for Christmas.

Works as advertized
Very simple tool to use. I had buckets, so I didn't order any from Auotgeek. I found my buckets were of different sizes although they were both 5 gal. The Grit Guard fit in the bottom of one, but not the other. I suggest checking any you have to see if they will fit and buy new buckets accordingly.
ProsPrice is right, product is simple and light weight, should last a long time, works as designed, quick shipping, easy to use.
ConsNone yet.

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.
