Removal of Broken Segments
Occasionally the Spiderpole will break.
Spare parts are available for the repair but first we must separate the broken segment from the good segment below it. The picture below says it all, but first, here are some basic instructions:
To remove the broken mast segment:
- Remove the broken segment and its partner below it from the rest of the mast.
- Carefully saw off the broken segment, such that the short stub remaining is perfectly flat.
- Stand the pole segment up with a piece of wood underneath the bottom of the lower segment.
- Place another piece of wood on top of the sawed-off segment,and hit it hard with a hammer. This will cause the friction lock to release.
