How to couple two poles to make a quick extension pole? (wood, metal,
or plastic)

Problem: Couple/join 2-3/4" dia 5' long poles to make a 10' extension
pole that will not twist slip but which may easily pull apart?


Fewest parts, easy and inexpensive to manufacture.


Ideas??

Application? Will not twist? How much torque in each direction?
Easily pull apart as in? just pull back, or manually disconnect?
More details man - there's at least a thousand ways of doing something
that MIGHT fit your reqiuirements.

There's a reason that poles usually telescope.

If I absolutely had to daisy-chain the poles,
I'd look at using Dinse welding cable connectors
to mechanically hold the lengths together.
They are nice, tight twist-lock connectors and
the price is entirely reasonable for what you get.

Light pole changer. Must twist in both directions.

Bring down bulb from 15' ceiling.

Place 10' pole on floor.

Remove upper 5' pole.

Place upper pole on floor.

Remove bulb.

Plastic plumbing pipe. Shove the sections into couplings and they'll stay
together - good enough to hook a clothesline back over the pulley. Plus
you can easily glue/bolt/clamp something to a coupling and stick that on
the end.

I like the PVC suggestion.

Cross drill and stick a screw through 'em.

Not fast enough.

Slip on, twist without slipping, slip off.

No more than 1 second to slip poles together or to pull them apart.
