    Just got it in post this morning and its exactly what I wanted. I use a backpack so wanted a simple trigger for turning flow on and off, well this is it. Great bit of kit and will fit any pole.

    Just been on window cleaning warehouse site and said "Pre-Order Only!"

    Dodger does it lock the water off too or do you have to keep your hand on the lever?

    Mine arrived around 3 pm so just been having a play. Have to say for a basic pinch type water flow controler works rather well. I did have a laugh at the instructions though as it says " During extention of the pole, hold lever on OPEN position" D'oh!... So much for saving water without using another tap or leaving a loop of hose so the pole can be extended with the lever on the closed position. :Image16:

    Can't grumble though as was a freebie to try but would say for £15 it seems rather good value for the money if anyone was thinking of getting one.

    Yep can't grumble, I was just leaving a loop and didn't find it got in the way when I was doing ground floor.

    It's not Charlie, depends what ya looking for and for me it's bob on. I just turn tap off on backpack whilst extending and it takes like 1 second to retract so water waste there is so little it's immaterial.
