Problem identified and replaced by Sabco
Was very unhappy with this initial mop, the mediation process was efficient and my previous mop has been deemed not as it should function and has been replaced by Sabco. I am now a satisfied customer.
Mop sponge head keeps falling from base of squeeze plate
Just a short time after purchase,the raised click on posts holding the pad onto the base seem to soften and the pad keeps falling from 4 plastic sockets, Not like the old sabcos that had screw on nuts (caps) to keep them fastened. I suggest that the the click on posts do not retain their spring tension AND DO NOT STAY IN THE 4 PLASTIC SOCKETS.

The mop doesn't stay in place. I persisted for some time and then also used another new refill. Clicked in, same as previous, however after only one use the sponge keeps popping out of the holes. Useless. Any suggestions?

Your original mop design actually worked!! Why was it changed?
I am absolutely dismayed at the newer designs of your mops. I have used Sabco mops for decades with no problems but the later designs are faulty in that the serrated edges on the inside of the bolt-hole cave in and the nuts go right through causing the sponge to come asunder. Next I purchased a larger 300mm Sabco mop from Bunnings. We couldn't get it out of the packet without causing the nuts to deform. I had one use out of this mop before before the sponge came unglued rendering it useless. Your design of years ago was perfect. Why was it changed?

Can’t get the dirty sponge off!
Tried so hard to get the dirty sponge off to replace it. Supposedly it’s an easy click to get off and then put a new one on. It is not. Avoid.

Sabco used to be SA Brush Coy, but with those letters I could now make up a more appropriate name
First off why isn't a rating of ZERO offered?
It was badged as a Lightning Extra Wide, so a pretty compelling offer which it didn't come up to because I couldn't even remove the wrapping.
Purchased at Bunnings - great store and they accepted me returning it. Had the same issue with removing the plastic retaining nuts so that the plastic cover could be removed. Turned them so hard, they deformed, but still did not budge.
At this point I logged in and found the other comments, so stopped there.
Returned to Bunnings for a swap with an Oates br...
