When Lee Stuart first started printing, he was a pusher. Years of motocross and freestyle riding had damaged his fingertips all the way to his shoulders. Pulling a squeegee had been painful.
Then he tried the EZ Grip Squeegee. Its ergonomic, two-handle design reduced stress and pain on his wrists. He never experienced feeling no pain since he started printing. It was a game changer.
"This squeegee has fully converted me into a puller," Lee said.
Since the squeegee is a staple in his shop, Lee has made his own version to share with the screen printing community. The EZ Grip — Lee Stuart Edition features an all-black handle, providing a touch of Rogue Lab's vibe while looking sleek in any shop.
Not only does the squeegee minimizes pain, it has many other features that improve the lives of printers. The Ink Protection System has built-in braces to support the squeegee, preventing it from falling on ink or spreading unwanted ink on other surfaces.
To lay the holder down outside the screen, flip it over. The blade will point up and away so ink doesn't spread. When stored, the blade's upright angle prevents the print edge from contacting surfaces that may cause damage.
"I've printed 8-12 hours a day with this squeegee and I've had zero pain, zero issues with my wrists or any of my other joints," Lee said. "It's something that would never ever happen with a standard squeegee."
Removing and installing blades is a breeze. No glue or bolts keep the blade in place. The squeegee has a precision fit, which allows friction to hold the blade in place. To install a blade, press the blade into the slot. To remove a blade, grip the blade at one end and pull.

Frequently Bought Together
Lee Stuart EZ GRIP
I can truly say I was a little worried about how it was going to work but I have a problem with power and how hard I push down, this helps me a lot on controlling my power ratio. It also helps by keeping the ink dispersion even throughout the blade. I didn’t take a picture of it with my cat; I’ll leave that to Lee.
Hey Michael! This is awesome to hear how you were able to use the EZ grip to control your power! We really appreciate your feed back on your experience using our squeegee! Happy printing :) - firstname.lastname@example.org
Definitely worth the purchase
I was pushing before getting this grip and it's so much easier now to pull. I have no trouble getting great prints using a fraction of the effort.
Hi Loren! Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback on our EZ Grip Squeegee. That is awesome the squeegee helped! I am glad the EZ Grip Squeegee landed in your shop, happy printing ! :) email@example.com
You absolutely NEED to give these a try!
I’ve been “thinking” about trying one of these for quite some time. Finally pulled the trigger and I couldn’t be more impressed. It feels so much better pulling ink with one of these. My wrists, forearms, everything is less fatigued, but the biggest benefit, my finger joints. If you haven’t tried one of these yet, “come on." Now I need about seven more.
Yes! YES YES! This is exactly what it was intended for, to relieve the amount of pressure you put on your hands and arms when printing. I am so glad you finally got yourself one and it is exactly what you needed. Definitely get 7 more! Happy printing :) - firstname.lastname@example.org
Should have bought a long time ago!!!
Love this!!! I let my supplier talk me out of it a long time ago. I bought it and I don’t want to use my other squeegees now. I highly recommend!!!
Hey Screen Printer! We love how Lee's name has guided our folks to the EZ Grip! It's a major game changer, and will save you not only time, but also your joints Keep up the great printing, and thank you so much for the love! We appreciate you #poweringtheprint! Best, Kayli B
A good kind of different!
Been printing with standard squeegees in both wood and aluminum handle styles for many years. Picked up a pair of these running 80 and 90 dur squeegee in them. I really like these so far after a couple of weeks of use. They do take a little getting used to and after some time with them you find the sweet spots with speed/pressure depending on the ink you’re running. With the additional leverage and running a stiffer squeegee material, they seem to work great for thicker, more viscous inks. I’m a ‘push’ printer and I can say they take less pressure to clear the screen. They’re pretty light weight and at first the bit of flex in them concerned me. But after working with them for a while I appreciated the lighter frame. I’m hopeful that the longer pins on the top of the handles will hold up over time. I also like the idea of the ease of flipping the squeegee material to get all 4 edges out of it and just the ease of swapping it out altogether for a fresh piece of material. Time will tell of their durability, but I’m optimistic based on the time I have on them so far. If you have any issues with fatigue or pain in your wrists, hands, arms or fingers from printing, I’d recommend giving one of these a test drive to see if it helps since the ergonomics are pretty different from a standard squeegee form factor. Overall, I think they’re worth a try.
