Your pole is made up of set number of sections and an elasticised cord. The cord runs through each section and is simply knotted through a pole tip at either end.


1. Measure the section / sections which are to be replaced (the new section will probably need to be cut to length). Mark the section length and cut the new section to the length measured. We would recommend using a plumbers pipe cutter or similar. Once cut, the end should be filed smooth. Tip- It may also be necessary to run the file inside the cut section.

2. Remove the pole end from one end of the pole and untie the knot, holding onto the end of the cord.

3. Remove the sections, one at a time until you reach the section/sections that need to be replaced (when it is time to re-assemble the pole it is important that the sections are put back in the same order. Tip: It may be beneficial to use numbered stickers on the sections so there is no doubt of the order).

4. Re-thread the cord back through the sections and tie a knot through the pole end.
