Slick Stixxx - Dental Tools For Your Ride

between grille components
Slick Stixxx make it easy to give your automobile a showroom shine. Like the precision tools found at your dental office, they are specifically designed to fit into tight spaces and remove unsightly build-up. The kit's 4 tempered-aluminum component handles come in a variety of lengths and angles, and can be connected together to provide additional reach. All Slick Stixxx handles are coated with chemical- resistant vinyl to prevent accidental scratches and provide a long life.
The seven cleaning heads are designed to address a wide variety of cleaning tasks, and can fit in to very close quarters. They are constructed of self-lubricating, non-marking, high-density plastic that is resistant to petroleum and chemicals. The 4-1/2" head cleaner is designed to clean and polish in deep, tight spaces. Its flexible qualities, combined with the thinness and length of the head, allow it to move around obstacles that have kept you from being able to the clean dirt and grime locked in visible but previously unreachable areas. The 1" head cleaner is thin, like its longer counterpart, but not flexible--lending its use to tight areas that require consistent thinness but no flexibility or taper. The large and small chisel heads fit in between grille and wheel components, while the cone/pick head is the right tool for getting into and around bolts.
When used as directed, Slick Stixxx automobile detailing tools are safe to use on chrome, billet aluminum, powder coating and painted surfaces. Directions and Recommendations
Select the component head appropriate for cleaning the desired area and attach it to the handle of your choice. Use the included ferrule connectors if you wish to extend and customize the handle length or angle. You can also use the 45-degree and 90-degree component handles as butt-end handle grips for additional leverage or comfort. Always attach a butt-end cap to the non-working side of the handle. This will keep the end of the handle from accidentally scratching any surfaces.
Wrap the supplied cloth around the selected cleaning head and handle combination, and then give the tool a twist to lock the rag on to the cleaning head. Next, apply cleaner or polish to the cloth. Use one hand to hold the tool and the other hand to hold the cleaning cloth, helping to articulate the tool in and around the desired area. As the cloth becomes soiled, move the cleaning head to a clean part of the cloth, apply more cleaner or polish, and continue.
You can also put cleaning heads on both sides of a handle in lieu of a butt-end cap. This allows you to easily flip back and forth between either cleaning head, and makes the unit function like a "dental tool". The cleaning heads can also be ground down with a grinder or belt sander to fit your particular needs.
Slick Stixxx are designed for use only with microfiber or other cloth material wrapped around the component ends. There may be certain applications--such as very dirty areas--that will require doubling the cloth, or the use of a thicker cloth. Cleaning cloths will wear down, and users should inspect them for holes and thinning before each use. Replace worn cloths as needed.
Wrinkle-finish surfaces are particularly rough on both cleaning cloths and Slick Stixxx component heads. Extreme care should be taken to continuously monitor the condition of the cleaning cloth, and frequent inspections for holes and thinning are required for safe operation. If the component cleaning tip breaks through the cloth you are using, there is a chance that it could mark the wrinkle finish or billet aluminum. In the event that the tip breaks through, stop cleaning and move the component end to a fresh area of the cloth before resuming.
