managed to lose another set of quad sticks!! bloody things seem to walk!

Went to replace them today and discovered when I went to put them in the car they are longer than before
they have 210cm ones now as well as I am sure still carrying the 180cm ones

In my case this is a good thing, I often found the height a little low when spread much wider than shoulder width

I can't get ahold of the 20mm sticks, which I prefer to the 16mm ones that seem to be the only ones stocked now.

If you look about 1cm below the top of each stick, there is a ridge. Cut around it and you can then pull the top plastic plug out of the steel tube. Cut tube to required length to suit height, re-insert plug and you have bespoke sticks to suit height of user!:thumb:

no cutting required
cut to length then bang a rod down the cut off and out it pops!!

I bought a replacement 180cm one yesterday to replace one I bent using my sticks to aid crossing a wall. It is slightly longer than the other one but only by 1cm or so.
