Directions for Use

Cleaning The Slide

It is recommended that you wear rubber gloves and protective eye wear. Use in a well ventilated area.

To get the best results from Great Slide Cleaning Polish and Great Slide Slickcoat Sealant, the inside of the outer tubes must be as clean as possible.

Although it is possible to begin the cleaning process with the Great Slide Cleaning Polish, it is recommended to remove as much oxidation and contaminates as possible prior to using Great Slide products. To do this, we suggest that you clean the inside of the outer tubes with Wright’s Brass Polish.

Tear the lint free cloth, such as a bed sheet, 8″ – 14″ wide depending on the bore size of the outer tubes, and 4 feet or longer in length (Fig. 1). Lay the cloth on the cleaning rod so it looks like a flag on a flag pole (Fig. 2). Pull the top corner of the cloth through the eye of the rod (Fig. 3) and wrap it around the top 4 or 5 times, being sure to cover the end of the rod. Then spiral it down covering the rod all the way to the end (Fig. 4). You may need to try it several times to get it “snug” inside the outer tubes.

IMPORTANTBe sure to hold the tube you are making the application to or buffing (Fig. 5). Be careful not to hit the crook with the end of the rod.

1) Rinse the inside of the outer tubes and the wrapped cleaning rod with clear warm water.

2) Shake bottle before using. Pour approximately a tablespoon of Wright’s Brass Polish to the inside of each outer tube, rotating the tube as you pour.

3) Holding the tube you will be cleaning (Fig. 5), work the wrapped cleaning rod back and forth with short strokes the length of the tube. Be careful not to hit the crook with the end of the rod.

4) Repeat step 3 to the inside of the other outer tube.

5) Rinse the outer tubes with warm water.

6) Repeat Steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 until the rinse water comes out a milky white color.

7) Once the rinse water is colored a milky white, drain, and dry the inside of the outer tubes.
