Exactly what I needed. I wanted a lightweight, telescoping, easy to manage pole to clear the snow from my satellite dish. The brooms were too short and getting the step ladder out in the snow was a messy hassle. One needs to watch tv even when the snow is piling up, you know. These poles come in different sizes, the shortest one being long enough for my needs. There are a number of different types of cleaning heads to fit it. I chose this brush head for clearing the snow, but it will also have other uses. I can certainly also get the other pieces to wash my upstairs windows, etc. Worth the money for me.
It works as intended. However, it does not do well in extreme cold temperatures. The Locking cone snapped off at the screw portion, during cold weather.
It's worth mentioning, that any attachment you place on top of it should also surround the upper portion of the Locking cone, not just the screw portion.
What's nice about this product is how light it is and it's ease of adjustment.
In my opinion, it would be nice if the Locking cone was made of metal.
We used several of these for camping: supporting the corners of tarps with the poles. Quick and easy to place and tie back. A bolt screwed into the top opening allowed the grommets of the tarp to fit on nicely.
