    The missus brought these back from Ikea, only £2 as I tell
    her if she see's anything that might interest me...to get it.

    Could be handy I thought for cleaning gutters...it would be
    great if I could mount them to my Harris pole. So I removed
    the end cap and tried it for size.

    As you can see, it doesn't quite fit..but I'm sure that if I take
    abit off with my junior hacksaw...

    ...and there we go. Despite there being no thread inside, it
    screwed on tight.

    The claw tool didn't fit so well as it's not so tampered as the other two but after a blast with
    my heat gun

    ...it screws on lovely and tight. Those claw fingers are actually a lot stronger than they look
    and they don't really flex much.

    Not sure if I'll ever find a need for it but, it's good to have nonetheless.

    I'm sure this scoop will come in handy to clear those big clumps of mud/grass and at the end of my pole, I should be able to just drop it straight into my bucket.
    As I say, these attachments do screw on very firmly and should come in very handy used alongside my Gutterpro tools. I can still use them as hand tools too but it's good to know I have the reach should I need it and for 2 quid, I can't go wrong.

    Hope this helps someone else as much as I hope it's gonna help me :)
    Remember, 2 quid Ikea.
