Finish application

I am refinishing my floors this weekend and will be applying 2 coats Basic Coatings Commercial Catalyst Sealer and 2 coats Basic Coatings Street Shoe (Satin) -- it recommends that I use an 18" medium weight T-Bar applicator -- any suggestions on what other type of applicator I can use since I cannot find this applicator at local stores and it's too late to order from web. Any suggestions are appreciated!

applying finish on floor

Manufacturer recommends a t-bar? This is essentially a squeegy. You pour
out some finish and "snowplow" the finish around.
Something that may work and should be available in a decent paint store is a sheepskin pad applicator. These pads should be attached to a plastic form
which can be attached to a stick. Ie: broom handle. They hold a ton of product so keep that in mind. Also before you start decide where you will start and stop. You don't want to be stuck in a corner.

Thanks for the suggestion -- I just purchased a 10" pad applicator that does fit on a painters pole and was told to snowplow the product -- thank you for your help!
