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.

          Seems stronger than the three part telescoping boat hooks. Designed to be safe around little, junior boaters.
