EZ Grip — Lee Stuart Edition
SLOW SHIP ITEM
Then he tried the EZ Grip Squeegee. Its ergonomic, two-handle design reduced stress and pain on his wrists. He never experienced feeling no pain since he started printing. It was a game changer.
"This squeegee has fully converted me into a puller," Lee said.
Since the squeegee is a staple in his shop, Lee has made his own version to share with the screen printing community. The EZ Grip — Lee Stuart Edition features an all-black handle, providing a touch of Rogue Lab's vibe while looking sleek in any shop.
Not only does the squeegee minimizes pain, it has many other features that improve the lives of printers. The Ink Protection System has built-in braces to support the squeegee, preventing it from falling on ink or spreading unwanted ink on other surfaces.
To lay the holder down outside the screen, flip it over. The blade will point up and away so ink doesn't spread. When stored, the blade's upright angle prevents the print edge from contacting surfaces that may cause damage.
"I've printed 8-12 hours a day with this squeegee and I've had zero pain, zero issues with my wrists or any of my other joints," Lee said. "It's something that would never ever happen with a standard squeegee."
Removing and installing blades is a breeze. No glue or bolts keep the blade in place. The squeegee has a precision fit, which allows friction to hold the blade in place. To install a blade, press the blade into the slot. To remove a blade, grip the blade at one end and pull.
