Fibreglass Pole Repair Instructions

Fibreglass poles are made up of a number of sections and an elasticated cord. The cord runs through each section and is simply knotted at either end.

1. Untie the knot at the end of the pole.
2. Remove the sections one at a time until you reach the section that needs 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).
3. Measure the section which is to be replaced (the new section will need to be cut to length). Cut the new section to the length measured. We would recommend using a small hacksaw. Once cut, the end should be filed smooth.
4. Re-thread the cord back through the sections and tie a knot at the end.



Alloy Pole Repair Instructions

Alloy poles are made up of a number sections, and an elasticated cord and end pieces. The cord runs through each section and is simply tied to the "end piece" at either end.

1. Pull out or unscrew the "end piece" and untie the knot at the end of the pole.
2. Remove the sections one at a time (holding onto the cord) until you reach the section that needs 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).
3. Measure the section which is to be replaced (the new section will need to be cut to length). Cut the new section to the length measured. We would recommend using a small hacksaw. Once cut, the end should be filed / sanded smooth.
4. Re-thread the cord back through the sections and tie a knot at the end piece, and re insert.
