The 5008 pole was created in 1959 and was the first telescopic pole ever made for the pool industry. Customers love the simplicity of this external locking pole and its heavy wall tubing. It is among the pool industry favorites.
The Outside Lock has been an industry favorite since 1959. The locking system is made of the strongest plastics ever made. And the nylon male fitting is pressed onto the outside tube with a ton of pressure, so it will not fall off. The female and ferrule fittings are easily replaced when worn.
