The 16mm Walking Pole Extender is an extra ‘section’ which will add extra length to your walking pole to support a shelter, by slotting between the 16mm and 14mm connectors.
It is designed to work with both ‘standard’ 18/16/14mm and slim-line’ 16/14/12mm poles, by slotting into place between two appropriate sections.
This will add 40cm to your pole length.
Standard pole - 18mm handle, 16mm mid section, T45 section, 14mm lower section.
Slim-line pole - 16mm handle, T45 section, 14mm mid section, 12mm lower section.
Total length: 50cm
Please note: This product is ONLY designed to extend a pole to be used as a shelter support. It is NOT designed to extend a walking pole for normal hiking use.
We also have an Expanding 16/14mm Extender/Link which provides the same solution to this product, but benefits from ALSO acting as a link to join a pair of Flick-Lock poles together. It is slightly heavier and more expensive, but offers dual use.
Please also see our Pole Mushrooms which safely convert the tip of a walking pole into a 'material safe' cap. Ideal when you wish to use the pole tip upwards without damaging the material.
