$5.95

Our Cleaner Strip material works great on your liquid tank cars. Our material is heavy weight material and will hold and dispense fluid a lot better and more even. Our material has a great price for the amount you get!

Most effective way to clean track,  Non abrasive cleaning ! Can be used dry or with liquids. We recommend using Mineral Spirits for cleaning fluid, this will not damage Slider Block or car floor.                                                                  Can be used in conjunction with liquid dispensing tank cars   Can be operated in both directions, pushing or pulling

As shown in pictures below, white Cleaning Strip material is warped around the Slider Block and held in place with a keeper strip.

As the Cleaner Strip gets dirty, just rotate the block to new clean position. When one side of strip is used up, flip strip over and use the other sides. 

See additional pictures below showing how to make and use slider block loader to help when attaching cleaning strip material to block.

Space both trim pieces with screws apart by using block and cleaner strip material to get the right tightness and spacing. This is done by either making the screw tight or loose to give the right tension

 

Place block and cleaner strip material in holder and trim to right length so when cleaner strip material is wrapped around block it overlaps on the top.  You can pre cut strip to 6"  piece and using the holder to keep strip tight around block.

 


After cleaner strip is wrapped around block, tuck ends into slot using keeper piece to hold cleaner strip  tight on block.

You might want to buy additional blocks to be able to keep cleaning track by exchanging blocks as needed. After one block is used on 4 sides remove and replace block with new one. Then as new block is cleaning you can get first block ready to exchange without having to stop cleaning. Just remove and replace over and over again. Before you know it your layout will be cleaned!
