Flipping Instructions

We first demonstrate the Flipping technique using a separate handle for demonstration purposes only. (Note that during the actual Flip we move the handle down slightly to track the slow descent of the Flipper)
At the end of the video, you will also see how to flip around a corner.probably the easiest flipping yet!

Tips for optimal Flipping! the Corner flip is a no-brainer! (see video)

1)  Flip in areas of low water current if possible.

2)  When Flipping, begin with the blade facing down....not up. 

3)  Remove the handle far enough that it completely breaks the magnetic attraction (usually 6-8" will do)

4)  After removing the handle, rotate it 180 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise.

5)  Once the handle is rotated, place it back on the glass 1-2" on either side of the inside cleaner with the top of the handle at about the same level as the top of the inside cleaner.   

Do not put the handle back on the glass directly in front of the inside unit or it won't flip properly.

6)  Flipping at the corner is the easiest....see video





1) Is Flipping difficult?

Flipping is Easy once you know how, but it does require you to follow the instructions (better yet, watch our flipping demo found on the video tab.) Flip in areas with low water currents and near the top of the tank where you have room to flip away from your rocks.

2) What is the maximum tank thickness Flipper can be used on?

Flipper can be used on glass or acrylic tanks up to 12mm (1/2") thickness.

3) Will the metal blades rust and how long do they last?

Metal blades are made with 316 stainless steel which is highly corrosion resistent. You can leave the Flipper in your tank and the blade should last for months depending on your use.

4) Does Flipper work on bowfront tanks?


5) Is Flipper the same as a Mag-Flip?

No! Mag-Flip was made by another company using our patent license. We were not satisfied with the way that product performed so we did not renew the licensing agreement.

Flipper Co. spent the next 18 months perfecting Flipper with stronger magnets, stainless steel blade and a more efficient scrubbing was worth the wait!
