    Wish it came with mounting brackets.

    Bought a year or so ago and only use it a couple times a year. Yellow tip on hook fell of right away. Unlike other reviews I have no trouble locking it, my problem has always been unlocking it. Just the bottom section gets locked and the only way to loosen it is with two pipe wrenches. Top section works fine. Once its extended and locked there no way to stow it - so its in the way.

    Will be replacing it will a different brand.

    Only good thing is it didn't corrode - it is left out all season on my boat.

                        Great reasonably priced boat hook. Used it on a 800 mile ICW cruise. Needed another hook for navigating locks, so I did research on other models but bought a second west marine boat hook. Well worth the money, easy to handle, good end hook design makes catching and securing lines easier.
