    Was using the Harris pole for windows yesterday and cleaning pvcs today and it's really pee'd me off, clamps are annoying, the sections spin, and if I tighten the clamps til the sections don't spin, then it takes me 10 minutes trying to un screw them and close pole down!! Last pvc job i felt like taking brush off and leaving the pole in the street. Is I couldn't loosen the clamp! Sections don't slide out great either.. Think a clx 18 will be much better

    i love how you guys have these problems, i have had mine for a while and never have a problem.
    the problems with the twist lock ones is make sure u neve over tighten them as this will wear the clamps out a lot quicker than normal.

    My clamps always give me hassle and if I have wet hand I have no chance of putting them up and down

    yer thats the problem with them once they are over tighten from the start then they wont last long atall, then you have to keep tighten them up even more,

    oil is the worst thing to put on, that would never grip on the pole!
