Answer: 
There is a latch lever on each end of the sanding block which releases that particular clip. The latch lever points away from the end and back toward the handle. The end of the latch lever toward the handle curves up slightly enabling you to pull it upwards with a finger or maybe something like a screwdriver. The latch lever is very strong and requires a lot of force to raise it.

Answer: 
I feel certain the clips will open. They are very tight and strong which makes it hold the sandpaper very firmly without any slippage. Just pull upward on the clip levers to open the clips. Then press each latch lever back down as the sandpaper is inserted. Wish you well and good sanding.

Would this be a useful tool for sanding down a wood deck, before re-staining? Not sure if it would be worth it, rather than getting a handheld sander.

Answer: 
May I suggest that you do a search on YouTube for "sanding drywall" and watch a video explaining this operation for this and similar models. The latch lever is very strong on this particular model (which is good). Just raise the latch lever on each end, insert sandpaper on one end and close that latch lever, then insert the paper in the other end holding it tight while closing that latch lever.

Answer: 
Unclip the hold down clips on the sanding pad. Lay the sandpaper over the cushioned base with the ends overlapping evenly. Bend the paper at both ends. Insert the paper under one of the clips with the bend of the paper no further than the edge it was bent over. Clip it in place. Slightly curl the other end of the sandpaper so it fits under the second clip. Be sure the sandpaper is snug before snapping Read More

Answer: 
You can purchase packages of sanding sheets in the drywall section in various grits. It is a standard size for many types of sanding blocks including pole sanders. Or you can purchase whole sheets of sand paper and cut them to fit.

Answer: 
Purchase the standard size sheets and fold them in thirds long ways. Cut them at the fold. This will give you three sheets that fit the sanding pole. Because of the force and pressure used with a pole you will want to purchase a better grade of sandpaper because the thinner paper tears easily when using a sanding pole.

3-1/4 in. x 9-1/4 in. Tuff-Lock Pole Sander is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good working pole sander I already had a p!astic version of a pole sander but was not satisfied with it because it just didn't change angles easily without stopping to turn it. This metal version turns easily while sanding by simply rotating the handle as you sand. It also allows the sanding block to remain in full contact with the wall at much lesser angles which is a great benefit. Overall, it just feels better in the hand while accomplishing the sanding job. I definitely recommend this poke sander over any plastic version regardless of the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So so It's good for sanding spots you have patched but the joint where the handle and sanding pad meet isn't very stiff so some times when you take it off the wall it turns on you and you have to turn the handle to get the right angle again

Very durable (I put a lot of pressure on it at times). The swivel joint can be a little 'clunky' to get turned. But overall I'm happy and would purchase it again.
