I cant remove the angle neck from my pole to put on an aquadapter.
Anyone got any thoughts?
Try putting it in hotwater mate, it may help loosen it up....
tried both but no joy.
I will keep trying though.
I've seen Alex Gardiner post some help for someone about how to remove one of these that's stuck (I assume it's a Type 1 Resi-Neck?). I'll see if I can find his post for you.
cut it off, and just attach the aqua dapter
Apologies that you have had this issue - we can of course replace this Resi-neck for you. However first of all you will need to remove it, to do so please follow the steps below:
1. Remove the top arm of the Resi-neck (undo the quick-release lever assembly)
2. Put an adjustable spanner on the flat circular part of the Resi-neck and tighten (the toothed part)
3. Put another adjustable spanner on the top clamp so that the protruding part rests against the spanner jaw
4. Now twist the two spanners apart and the Resi-neck shaft will start to turn
5 Keep turning and pulling the shaft out of the pole
This should separate it for you – this simply provides much greater leverage.
Let me know if you have any further problems and if you would like us to replace this Resi-neck.
Found it... on another forum:
Edit - Alex has put updated instructions above so I've removed this.
Glad I seen this post as I have had the same problem this weekend with no joy!
I knew it was quick release but is so stuck I was beginning to wonder if it was glued in!
And worried about breaking the clamp!
Today I tried the above & broke my clamp with the adjustable spanner & damaged the resi neck! & the bloody thing is still stuck in there! there was a few swear words shouted out this morning lol
I tried to get this off last year with no luck so I just left it until now. I just bought a new gardiner sill brush & resi neck to use, so it has to come off.
So I had to order a new clamp glue & went for new quick loq system which I wish I did in first place, coming tomorrow hopefully & not looking forward to cutting old clamp off! plus still need to get the resi out!
