Not wanting to thread jack but can someone tell me the benefits of the 'stubby' guns over the standard guns. Or point me in the direction of a thread where the benefits are outlined? Thanks in advance.

For me it will be accessibility. My drive is right next to the neighbours garage wall and I always find doing one side of the car with the standard lance tight. The stubby gun will make it a easier due to the short lenght of the gun. Even doing the wheel arches will be better as the gun is shorter and easier to move around the arches.

Also it's quicker to swap ends and lance as well as being easier to get closer to wheel arches etc.

I've been contemplating picking up the one from direct hoses myself, the length of the standard gun is a right pain when you are trying to do arches etc.

Apart from the advantages listed above, I really like it for using these spray on rinse off sealants.
The normal trigger gun is quite cumbersome but with the short one, spray over panel with one hand, rinse with the short trigger in the other.

The ability to change spray angle is also really handy.

Used it today and its great! Super easy to switch ends only annoying things is that the hose popped out the gun a couple of times, this was after washing my car and I was putting it away, not sure if it was because it have some kind of soapy solution on the top causing it to slip, either way was very annoying. It may have been user error though! Otherwise it's been perfect, I seemed to only use the white tip

No it has to metal bars that clip against the ridges of the hose

Yes that’s as per original but there should be a click as it fully engages.
