Hi, I'm Jennifer Mull from Backwoods in Austin, Texas. Today, we're here to talk about how to fix a trekking pole. There's two types of trekking poles, one is with the speed lock and one is with the screw mechanism. Often times when people talk about trekking poles being broken, it is that it's not locking in place. So there's a couple of ways to fix these differently for each type. This first type which is your speed lock type is that you undo the speed lock, you will push it over as far as you can and then just screw down on the bolt that's on the other side. You want to get it as tight as your fingers will allow and that will allow for the trekking pole to be fixed or not be slipping on you. You tighten down then on that speed lock and it won't budge so you wont' get that slippage. As far as the other type of trekking pole on this one you actually have to pull it apart so you will unscrew here, you will pull it out. There is a mechanism that you will need to turn, a couple turns usually to the right or clockwise. You'll then push it back in place, screw the bolt back together and then it won't slip. There is also a lot of replacement parts for trekking poles so you can get baskets, extra tips, etc. and those are just provided by the manufacturer.
