back in the olden days, some claimed to file small notches on the back lip for the same effect
(keeping the air/recovery water flowing) and presumably prevent lock-down

On certain hand/stair tools, I've seen holes drilled into the back of the vacuum chamber, near the outer edges. I believe mainly to reduce overspray but also keeps the air flowing.

Overspray
When will somebody truly fix it?
I'm working on it. Another of the benefits of my RVJR'S. You don't get that steam spray puffing into the work area everytime you trigger the valve. If I look close to the surface when the solution is flowing, I can see a small amount of it being thrown sideways on some carpets and at transitions/doorways. Never do I have blasts of hot vapor introduced to atmosphere like you see on all/most of the pics/video I see submitted on line.
A silicone brush ring added to the cleaning head like on my tile cleaner would eliminate the side throw almost completely.

As a wear item, the skirt would interface at carpet level, attached to the plastic shroud that rivets to the metal 3 slot cleaning chamber. And I think I will drill one of my spare heads as Bob suggests.
Nothing to lose, lots to learn.
