    So your pole start slipping around of cause over time it wears.

    Then you run out of adjustment.

    Why does it slip?

    The pole is round.

    Does a pole have to be round?

    Is there a shape that will work better and stronger then the standard WFP round pole?

    [SIZE=large]If you were using this shape pole then you could use a standard clamp on it.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=large]All it does is stop the pole from sliding down.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=large]Also have more rigid pole less flex. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=large]Without using expensive materials. [/SIZE]
