I bought this Long handled dustpan & brush set about a month ago, so i didnt have to keep bending down on the floor to sweep up with a standard set. It is a good make Addis and had a guarantee so thought it would be better than cheaper brands. Initially was very happy as seems fairly well made and i like the fact that it can be folded and clipped together to store in the cupboard taking up less space. However after only a month, when using the dustpan it doesnt stay open without folding itself up which is a bit inconvenient. There is a little catch on the top which the handle is meant to slot into to keep it open and flat when in use, but unfortunately it has become loose very quickly and keeps popping out. This doenst seem to be fixable, so just a bit of a pain now as keeps folding up everytime i use/move it around. Will probably contact Amazon about it as under guarantee thankfully.
