Mop Squeeze Mechanism – Roller Stop
Category: Floor, clean, kitchen
Problem: My mop that has two halves that come together like butterfly wings to wring out the fluid. After the wringing out the “wings” did not return to their correct position. I discovered that the rollers that helped squeeze the wings together had slipped over the crimping on the rod holding the roller.
Action: Initially I placed a lock washer over the rod holding the roller and it worked for a while. After some time the washer slipped over the crimping and the roller managed to be caught again and not return once the sponge was squeezed. I then placed a lock washer ahead of the crimping for both rollers and then drilled and tapped a hole in which I inserted a small screw to prevent the washer from moving forward.
Result: It worked Great!
