The RUPES BigFoot Claw Pad Tool is a really handy accessory tool, whose usefulness abounds. We always keep one to hand whenever we are working with any of the machines in the BigFoot line up, for the following reasons. Firstly, it's important to keep your pads clean and residue-free as you work, and the semi-rigid bristles make light work of this. Secondly, BigFoot polishing pads have a habit of welding themselves to the backing plate during use, which can make them hard to remove and susceptible to being torn. The wedge end of the RUPES BigFoot Claw Pad Tool makes it much easier to pry them apart without damaging the pad. Thirdly, microfiber and wool pads have very specific priming requirements, which involves spreading a thin layer of product over them, and the wedge enables this to be achieved in a mess-free way.

The RUPES BigFoot Claw Pad Tool is a must have tool for paint correction work. The innovative design features two functional ends that serve three distinct purposes. The brush end features stiff nylon bristles that enable spent polish residues to be safely removed from all types of pads while they are still affixed to the machine, which maintains cutting efficiency and helps to prevent micromarring from occurring. The other end comprises a flat claw-shaped wedge, which enables pads to be separated from the backing plate more easily (with no risk of tearing) and both microfiber and wool pads to be primed more easily (by acting as a spreader). Compact and ergonomic, the RUPES BigFoot Claw Pad Tool optimises productivity and prolongs pad life, and fits into a pocket or belt holder for easy access during use.

How To Use
Care instructions: (i) during use, wipe clean with a damp microfibre towel when necessary; (ii) after use, rinse under fresh running water (using your fingertips to tease out residues and any fibres) and then allow to dry naturally, and; (iii) store in a dry, dust-free environment while not in use (lidded plastic storage boxes are ideal in this respect).
