Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by avgJoe good before it broke
Used it to paint a few rooms. It was handy and did what it was suppose to do. But the mechanism was not reliable, some times work ok, sometimes very difficult to get it to work.
Now it doesn't work at all. I had to tape it at a certain length in order to use it. I have, in effect, nothing more than an expensive broom stick.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FloriDUH OK for light use
Wanted extension pole for wall painting; used it successfully for 2 walls & 1 room. It was OK for roller painting. It was a bit quirky tp twist & extend/shorten, as it wouldn't always lock/unlock. However this year used it to roller paint a 10'x14' concrete lanai. Used minimal pressure when rolling 2 coats, but when finished, it wouldn't unlock. Interior pole twists tightly, but stays locked slightly exstended & won't adjust. You get what you pay for . . .

Extended the pole to the height I needed and twisted it to lock it. But, it just kept twisting and twisting and twisting... Returning it now. Home Depot shouldn't carry such junk!

threaded connection is plastic--broke after minimal use,
adjuster design makes rod difficult to tighten at small or no extension

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TheCatLady Broken, Will Return It for Replacement
Well, when I tried to extend it the first time, it came apart, with the mechanism that does the loosening/tightening remaining stuck in the handle section. Oh well. I wound up using the bottom half to do my deck restoration. Worked perfectly. It is very sturdy and withstood the pressure of me pushing the roller onto the deck. I really like it and will return it for replacement so I can keep it. I think it was a minor manufacturing issue that will resolve itself when I return it. No problem.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by frustrated poor quality
similar experience as another reviewer: first time I went to adjust the length, the adjustment insert snapped inside the rod, rendering it useless. I did not use excessive force in attempting this adjustment. It is a poor quality device and provides no value (since it cannot be used for its intended purpose).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Violet Best Pole I've used
After reading the other reviews, I'm surprised. I've used this pole for many projects and it has been a wonder tool. It's definitely made with quality.
