    I'll let you know in a few days. My new clamp-set is on the way. Putting them on my 4yr old SLX-25, current clamps allow 2 sections to spin like crazy, so it'll be a real test. Fingers crossed.

    they are good, stops the spining, which was the main reason i stopped using my clx, as i would push on the pole and it would either spin or collapse, doesnt seem to be doing that now


    when you are opening and closing them, they seem a bit loose, but that might be the design so they dont spin when closed

    I used my SLX39 today for first time I got it yesterday, cleaned 3 windows with it & I was comparing it to my other 45ft pole & noticed the 1st clamp was broke! awesome!
    Don't know if it was done in transit, I have been very careful with it last 2 days & I planned to use it tomorrow

    It's the self tensioning that's the key mate.

    I have received mine today so I will put them on over the weekend, hopefully they are better than before and to be honest although I got them for 50% off because my pole is 6 months old they should be free I think if something is faulty

    I have 2 tightening mine up at lease 3 times a day or I get spinning sections I think the pole is really good but not into the clamps might have 2 give gardiner a ring

    You can actually tighten them up quite a lot to stop them flopping, with out the being to tight so that they are constantly clamping the pole

    Is that on the new clamps?
    I thought they still moved a bit, but not really used it long enough yet
