I love the grit guard for cleaning my boat and car. Keeps the dirt out of my mitt and off my paint. Highly recommend to anyone who cares about maintaining a showroom finish.

Thanks for your review, Ansel! The dirt trap is such an underrated tool. A must-have for sure. We appreciate your business and feedback!


Simple design but strong and effective. I live in TN and Tennessee mud sticks to everything, especially my swab mop. The dirt trap scrapes the mud from my mop and traps it in the bottom of the bucket. I don't have to keep changing the water in my bucket anymore! I'm very satisfied!

Thanks for your review, Rick! We're glad the hear our dirt trap can stand up to Tennessee mud. We appreciate your business and feedback!


The bucket insert is fantastic and so is the advice from the staff at Captains. Professional service.

Thanks for your review, Sam! Glad our team got your sorted out. We appreciate your business!
