            Doesn't work well

                  Comments about Floating & Telescoping Boat Hooks:

                  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.

                    Very lite weight and easy to handle. My wife now always has it in her hands when nearing a dock or other boats. I like to think she's trying to be helpful instead of her not trusting my handling of the boat.

                      The telescoping shaft does not lock securely enough to allow you to push a heavier boat away from the dock.
