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.

    Comments about Floating & Telescoping Boat Hooks:

    This was purchased to replace a boathook I had used on three boats for nearly 25 years, that I recently broke docking as a strong storm approached.

    So far, the new one works just fine and will hopefully provide me the same or more years of service.

      I carry two boat hooks because I have a single-screw inboard with no thrusters, but this is the first one I grab.

              With most poles, the extension locking mechanism gets stuck and is difficult to deal with. So far I have had no issues. It seems to be made well and is holding up nicely.
