Q:How do you tighten the handle and shovel connection when it becomes loose?
by|Mar 15, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello and thank you for your question. Looking into this further, we have found that there are actually a few things you can do: 1) Check to ensure there are two screws connecting the handle to the head. If one is missing, replace it (SCREW, HEX w/WASHER, #10 x 3/4 SELF TAPPING). 2) Check to see if either of the screws are loose, if so tighten them. 3) If the screw spins and will not tighten, then replace it with a larger screw (#12).

      Q:Why is this shovel being sold in stores? It breaks even from the lightest of snow. Junk.
      by|Dec 6, 2019

      Answer This Question

      A:  I’ve used mine to shovel my entire driveway for two winters and it still is good as new.

      by|Dec 25, 2022

      A:  I have had the shovel for years with no issue. I think it’s best for ice, not snow, because the metal catches on any change in the concrete. My driveway is to the north, so I often get a sheet of ice on my walkway and near my driveway. This breaks it up easily so I can clear it. I have a different shovel that I use for clearing snow.

        A:  I’ve had 0 issues with mine! And know several others who have the same shovel without issue.

        by|Jan 30, 2020

          A:  You may be reviewing the wrong shovel. I've had mine for 7 or eight years with no problems, except that I've finally worn out the steel edge on the bottom of the shovel. I'm hoping I can replace that part because the rest of the shovel is fine.

          by|Dec 26, 2022

            A:  Considering I've used mine to chip away built up ice, pushed over a foot of show, and shovelled with it, it makes me wonder how you used it to be able to break it in "the lightest of snow"

            by|Jan 4, 2023

            A:  return it for another one. I moved snow with mine for 3 hours over thanksgiving. Worked great

            by|Dec 17, 2019

              A:  The product is only good for shoveling ice and not to break the ice, it does have a plastic handle as an inconvenience as this is a really good product for it being plastic, plastic handle shovels is not the product if you want to break ice with, you may want a wooden handle for ice breaking jobs.

              by|Mar 16, 2022

              A:  I had the same problem. Bought it recently, and the plastic collar broke almost immediately, and the two screws worked loose and fell out.

                  Horrendous quality. Do not buy
                  This shovel is trash. After 3 snows the screws constantly come loose. I have to tighten the screws multiple times during each shoveling session. In fact, they all fell out at once in the snow so now it’s held together by duct tape. Seriously never buy this shovel. Incredibly unreliable.

                    Not built for heavy snow
                    I've purchased 3 of these shovels - the first one was returned / exchanged within 90 days due to the screws coming loose where the blade attaches to the handle. The other two made it through a full winter. However, there is no replacement option for the wear strip, so I'm looking for a pair of shovels again this year. Would not recommend for any heavy or frequent snow removal unless Ames decides to start offering replacements for the wearable parts of their tools.

                      Not well constructed
                      I purchased 5 of these shovels for our properties and 4 of the 5 have broken after 3 snow falls. The screw design is poor. Once they loosen, they cannot be tightened and eventually fall out.

                        Best shovel
                        I think the 20” aluminum combo shovel is the best I have ever seen. I put two metal hose clamps over the tops of the screws tightly. This squeezes the outside part together and prevents the screws from coming out. See the picture. I have had many plastic shovels, They all eventually crack.

                          Coming Apart Already
                          Recently purchased this shovel in North Jersey for two pending snow storms. After the first snow storm (20inches) the metal collar began to loosen and the screws could not be tightened. Ended up having to rig it by stuffing the space in the collar with some cardboard and wrap it in electric tape. Used it that way for the second snow storm (6inches) and it did ok. But shouldn’t have had to go through all that after just one storm. Definitely looks and feels sturdier than it is.

                            Not well designed - screws stripped in a short time
                            Much like the previous review I just read, the screws attaching the blade to the handle stripped. Upon removing the screw, there was nothing for it to attach to. The upper screw threaded into a second layer beneath the outer handle pipe, giving it something to hold. The lower screw had absolutely nothing behind the very thin metal of the handle and was just loose so the shovel blade wobbles badly. Photo shows the lower screw hole and the fact that it doesn't go through the inner sleeve to give it any chance of holding the blade.

                              I purchased this thinking metal is always more durable, but I've had two of these shovels (the second one was a replacement) and neither lasted more than a single snow storm. The weak point is the grommet that goes between the blade and the shaft. It tears and falls out and then the blade is able to wobble. Then it is only a matter of time before the bolts weaken and fall out. It's also harder to use than the a quality plastic bladed shovel. Compared to those, snow sticks to the blade more, it's heavier so it takes more energy to toss snow, and it catches on every imperfection of the driveway. The only way I've found it to be better than the plastic version is for scraping packed snow and ice off the ground. I've been using a TrueTemper plastic shovel for several seasons, I'll be going back to that.

                                Finally, the first snow shovel we've had that's strong enough to break apart what the county snow plow leaves across the driveway overnight, yet which is still well shaped to use as a snow pusher and full-scoop shovel. Though it would be too heavy for my daughter to wield for long, my strong grandson just loves it. He's not afraid he'll break it like he did our previous three. It has cut his shoveling time nearly in half. He is tall, so he added a second handle to the shaft. (See photo.) That made a world of difference. - This is a sturdy shovel built for strong men. We are well pleased.

                                I bought this shovel because it appeared to be heavy duty and well built, however that was not the case. While using it for the second time the handle completely detached from the shovel! I will be returning for a different one.

                                I have only had the shovel for a month but, it was very useful clearing the snow off the roof after the massive snowfall last week. The shovel cut through the packed snow and easily cleared the powder. The large scoop made clearing the powder a breeze and the handle was comfortable to grip. The shovel is slightly heavier than I would prefer but I needed the ridged blade to cut through the icy, hard packed snow.
