A New Bucket Insert? -Detail Guardz

The Detail Guardz have released a brand new bucket insert called the "Turbine Dirt Lock." This is the only bucket insert that utilizes patented fluid dynamic principles to blast and trap debris at the bottom of the pail and keep it there. It's able to achieve this by having 4 key features.



1. First the shape of the product mimics a jet-turbine. By playing with the curves, we were able to create a small vortex effect when you pump your hand in the bucket. This speeds up the water & debris in a downward motion.

2. Water & debris will then pass through hundreds of tapered Venturi funnels that will compress and concentrate the charge. This speeds up the water and blasts the debris to the bottom of the bucket. (The same idea as a pressure washer or jet hose attachment, but on a smaller scale)

3. We applied the same Venturi concept, but in reverse with much smaller openings underneath. This keeps the debris trapped underneath the screen and allows clean water to return above. This gives the Dirtlock a complete cycle, just like a pump would work. Essentially it releases the built up pressure.

4. It's equipped with bucket locking tabs that can be pushed in and out, allowing you to obtain a perfect seal in your wash bucket. As always, it's molded from an industrial grade plastic that is extremely durable, flexible and chemical resistant.

Here is the link to the video ->

Jesus is this a parody. This has to be the pinnacle of anti-science mumbo jumbo.

Absolutely not convinced. Even the video doesn't sell it - when he's pumping his hand in the bucket, I wasn't seeing anything pass to the bottom of the bucket.

We are trying to get one to test to see how it works

Hey guys, thank you for your honest feedback and opinions

I probably should have explained it a little more thoroughly so it's easier to understand the mechanics behind the Dirtlock. I'll update the top section as-well


1. First the shape of the product mimics a jet-turbine. By playing with the curves, we were able to create a small vortex effect when you pump your hand in the bucket. This speeds up the water & debris in a downward motion.

2. Water & debris will then pass through hundreds of tapered Venturi funnels that will compress and concentrate the charge. This speeds up the water and blasts the debris to the bottom of the bucket. (The same idea as a pressure washer or jet hose attachment, but on a smaller scale)

3. We applied the same Venturi concept, but in reverse with much smaller openings underneath. This keeps the debris trapped underneath the screen and allows clean water to return above. This gives the Dirtlock a complete cycle, just like a pump would work. Essentially it releases the built up pressure.

4. It's equipped with bucket locking tabs that can be pushed in and out, allowing you to obtain a perfect seal in your wash bucket. As always, it's molded from an industrial grade plastic that is extremely durable, flexible and chemical resistant.

Excellent idea, I will send out some samples to the DW team to test it. This is definitely something you need to see to believe!
