absolutely brilliant
4 Jul 2014
By diywiz

" What a time-saver !
We have 10-11ft high ceilings and previous paint jobs took forever (hopping on and off ladders)
My roller fitted onto the end and did not move or swivel.
I was able to adjust the pole to the perfect length and managed to do 2 coats in the time it would normally have taken me to do half/three quarters of the ceiling. Brilliant !

" This product does what you'd expect it to do. Minimal flexion in use and easy to clean (if you can be bothered). Just need to find me a decent roller that does the job too! "

" Only used once to paint a garage floor. Excellent price for a rasonably sturdy telecopic pole. Came with both screw and push fit ends. Locked to length quickluy and easily and stayed put. No view on reliability as only used once for 2 hours. "

Telescopic paint roller handle
29 Oct 2012
By Fredthe3rd
, Stevenage
" I had to return the 1st one as it split around the top after a few minutes use. 2nd one is ok but you cannot apply to much pressure as it is just not strong enough for it.
Ideal DIY / low use item and cheapest around.
Use more paint and less pressure and it will do fine.

Good product, excellent price
2 Oct 2012
By Maddad
, Bridgnorth
" I was going to buy the 3m extension pole but it wasn't in stock so I went for this one instead, and for the hall stairs and landings walls and ceilings I was painting, it was plenty long enough. It saves so much time, although obviously you have to use a few more muscles to paint at 2m distance. The connector to the roller/paint pad is either by metal screw thread which is perfect, or the plastic tapered end which goes over the metal thread if your roller isn't threaded. The tapered end is less than perfect, as the pressure exerted when painting causes it to come loose after a while. I would suggest wrapping some tape around when you've pressed it on as tight as you can. "

Roller Pole
29 Aug 2011
By Stewtheblue
, Leicester
" An excellent little roller pole, has some 'give' and doesn't feel stiff like the cumbersome fibre-glass/yellow poles.
As for the roller not staying on...a bit of masking tape or selotape around the black connector at the top of the pole and your roller won't fall off. "

Not strong enough
4 May 2014
By Iain1234
, Woking
" These things will break after not very long. There is a plastic piece on the end to which you attach the roller which is fitted inside the end of the aluminium pole.
Its not long enough/doesn't go down inside the poll far enough & so there s a lot of load on a small area of aluminium. That causes it to split & then that's your lot. Its not very well engineered. "

Telescopic Paint Roller
27 Dec 2012
By GeoMac1
, Whitburn
" This product has not been used to do a job yet, but I have tried it to see how it would handle when in use.
It seems to appear sturdy enough and, give enough flex for the roller to move evenly across the desired work area. Yet, it has not used a fully laiden roller of paint, so can not say if it can handle the strain on it, until I have done some work.

" The roller simply pushes onto the pole and then simply falls off again no matter how hard you push it on. I opened the pole pushed the roller onto it and it fell off and bounced down the stairs. Next time I will buy one of those that screw onto the pole. "
