Thread: Glide free transfer board strips

  1. #1

    Glide free transfer board strips

    OK, MCDUFF HAD POSTED ABOUT THESE IN ANOTHER THREAD SO I FIGURED I WOULD GIVE IT ITS OWN .......


    ANYWAY, I JUST ORDERED A KIT. AFTER EMAILING BACK AND FORTH W/ ONE OF THE OWNERS HE ASSURES ME THESE WILL WORK W/ WET BARE SKIN. MEANING SHOWER TRANSFERS. ALSO ASSURES ME NEEDING TO PLEDGE THE BOARD WILL BE A THING OF THE PAST. I TOLD HIM I WOULD BE GIVING A FULL REVIEW HERE.
    THEY ARE INEXSPENSIVE AT 20 PER KIT.

    I will be interested in what you think of them for the shower. I currently put lotion on the board for showers, and it is a nuisance.

    It would be great if that worked!

    Just recently my shoulders feel like they've been run over by a herd of Wildebeests.

    just call them direct.
    i use the ultra slick, good board but does lose its slide after awhile then pledge is needed. for me, i truly slide to transfer, no tri's = zero lift, so the easier i slide tyhe better it is on my shoulders.

    i have an old adi board that isnt slick at all anymore, im going to try the kit on it.

    OK, got them last friday, so been using them little over a week.

    so far, they are da bomb. pita to put on but my wifes steady hand got them on perfect.

    havent tried them bare ass but my wife did just to see if your skin will slide it did, but im not crazy about bare wet ass transfers......

    we cleaned all the pledge off w/ alcohol b4 applying the strips. i put them on an old adi board that was not sliding anymore..

    well worth 20 bucks.

    cool, thanks dude.
    Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

    Doesn't anyone use a slide sheet (not a padded one) for bare bum transfers? That's what I use, and it's quite hassle-free.
