    My Pole extension keeps sticking making it difficult to extend. Has anyone else had this issue or have any ideas of how to resolve?

    What make of pole is it? Is there dirt between the extensions? Or if it's a Gardiners pole, has the stop tape been chewed up?

    That stop tape idea is terrible, I had a pole jam once with it stuck between 2 sections, took 2 of us 20 mins to pull them apart nearly gave up, just paint lines on now.
