Product Description

The Detail Guardz Dirt Lock will help you avoid adding ugly imperfections into your paint during the wash process! Surface imperfections like swirls and fine scratches often come from the washing process, so it is very important to minimize risks whenever possible. When washing your vehicle, you glide your wash mitt across the soapy surface and dunk it into your rinse bucket after each panel. With the Dirt Lock at the bottom of the bucket, you can pulse your hand to help remove dirt and grime from your wash media and help trap it on the bottom of the bucket. The key is in the patented jet turbine design of the Dirt Lock, which helps speed up and push dirt and grime to the bottom of the bucket. The dirt is forced through hundreds of tapered Venturi funnels to the bottom of the bucket and out of harm's way. Only fresh, clean water returns up the side of the dirt lock through the fresh water troughs. Any small particles that made it through the openings hit the tumbler system and are pushed back down to the bottom of the pail. This simply means that clean water is at the top and the dirt and grime are filtered and trapped at the bottom of the bucket!

Detail Guardz has thought of many other unique features that show this company has literally thought of everything! The special seal off curtain edge forms a nice tight bond with the outer edge of the bucket so contaminants cannot escape on the outside edge. Trapping contaminants at the bottom keeps you washing safe and ensuring your paint looks great. It has retractable finger grips so you can easily grab the Dirt Lock placing it in your bucket or removing it. The flexible legs position it perfectly at the bottom of your bucket and lock the unit in place. It fits perfectly in the vast majority of 5 Gallon and 3.5 Gallon buckets. If you are looking to help make the washing process easier and safer, the Detail Guardz Dirt Lock is a great investment!

Bonus: Pair the Detail Guardz Dirt Lock Pad Washer to your Dirt Lock Insert for added cleaning power for not only your wash mitts, but polishing pads as well!

Note: As if 4/13/21, the side grips on the unit are now a new rubber locking system. These grips are fully self-adjustable on their own and provide the perfect amount of tension to lock inside almost any wash bucket.

The Guardz dirt lock with it's novel design is a step up from the Grit Guard for same price. Pleased with how it fits in the bucket and the way it works.

I have the original Grit Guard, and to me this product is an edge above. The only downside is it does get stuck at the bottom of my bucket and need to use a tool (such as a coat hanger) to get under the finger holes and pull up with enough force. Other than that, it is a great product and I wish DI carried more colors!
