Hi all. I've got 2 CLX 27, a CLX 35 and a super max 45 by Alex Gardiner- Great poles and highly recommend them. Ive been using my CLX 27's for about 2 years now and decided to upgrade the clamps to the new self adjusting clamps. I got these from Gardiner Poles about 2 years ago and have only now decided to fit them as the section s are worn and the old parts are no longer available. Fitting was easy, however- having fitted the new clamps to both my CLX 27's and tightened them up so they no longer spin when fully closed, the clamps do not stay closed but slowly spring open all on their own . As you can imagine, this will be totally frustrating when they are extended and the clamp pops open all on its own! Can't get hold of Alex at Gardiner poles as they are closed till 5th Jan. Anyone got any useful ideas on how to resolve this? ps can't re use the old clamps as they have been cut off!!!
