Pinch tab wiper blades

The wiper arms on my Tekna are not the standard hook type, they are pinch tab fittings.
I've searched the forum and can't find anyone else mention this.

So my question is, are everyone else's normal hook types and if not can you link to a site that sells juke pinch tab wipers, please?

I've even bought 2 wiper arms after the seller assured me that they were hook fittings, they weren't!

I know I can go to Halfords, I just don't like paying their inflated prices, thanks for the reply btw.

Is my juke odd, having these wiper arms, because when I search juke wiper blades they all come up with hook compatible blades?

Ours has hooks. Oddly we have two navaras at work, bought at the same time, one has hooks and one has the other pinch things.

Purchased my wiper blades from a well known firm over the internet, you input your registration number and they know what blades you need.
I did email them with details about the existing blades such as length and type of fitment and they assured me the correct blades would be sent, if these were wrong they would replace them foc and there was no need to return the wrong blades.
Needless to say the correct blades were sent.

Mine has hooks also.

While on the subject of wipers, has anyone used PIAA si-tech blades? My blades squeak sometimes, and the PIAA are supposed not to squeak, but they are over £50 for a pair, so would rather have someone confirm they are good before I pay 3 times the cost of normal blades.
