@mrdobelina LOL. You're right. She looks super unsteady walking on the roof... also happens to be wearing high heals. Too funny

I like a nice clean window, and ~ once/month I use a screw driver to fold in my windows here in NYC to windex the outside and it's a big pain. I thought to myself, I wish there was some magnetic device that would let me reach out the window and connected the 2, and then clean the outside at the same time as I clean the inside. A google search later, The Glider! I can't wait to try this out.

@kristofertm this reminds me of those aquarium cleaners 🐠🐟

@gabriel__lewis Yes! I think thats the first time I saw this concept
I use this - great care must be used to move it slowly - but not too slowly, across the window. It falls off the glass a lot, so anchoring the tether is essential. If they added ball bearings to the mechanism it might glide better across the glass.

@satloff have you been using it regularly or is it one of those products we buy because it looks valuable early on but eventually ends in the basement?
@abhineetsays I use it about once per quarter on office windows. Thus far it has stayed out of the basement.
