    Evening folk,

    Do most aluminum poles have slitted / cut ends where they connect to each other to allow the clamp to tighten up ?

    Reason I ask is I bought some from GCS and couldn't tighten the buggers up sufficiently to stop them spinning round while in us and separating when placed on the ground which made for a few hairy moments when raising them to work height !!

    Don't see how they work if not cut to allow movement in the pole diameter.

    Cheers

    Hi there, try putting the fixing band over both tubes and then tighten up.;)

    Mine are swaged so slot together,when dirty and wet there a nightmare to separate
    Do yours have thumb clamps?if so get some regular ones you can tighten with a socket
    When my clamps pack in (which they all do)
    I just use duct tape til the new ones arrive :whistle:
