3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, but a stupid price
My experience is that of everyone else. It does the job, but it's a ridiculous price for a pole with a hook on it. Oh, it's extendable - amazing what they can do with technology. However, the spring loaded nobble thingy used to fix the 'extension' into place is a bit fiddly and could even be dangerous if it didn't click in properly and the window came slamming down. My...

Perfect for velux windows. Lightweight, quick to extend or collapse. The hooked end is easy to use to open the windows to vent as well as full opening and closing.

My experience is that of everyone else. It does the job, but it's a ridiculous price for a pole with a hook on it. Oh, it's extendable - amazing what they can do with technology. However, the spring loaded nobble thingy used to fix the 'extension' into place is a bit fiddly and could even be dangerous if it didn't click in properly and the window came slamming down. My advice, if you have the time, would be to go to Wickes, buy a 2 metre piece of 1" dowel or 2 metre x 1"x1" timber and screw a suitably sized hook into the end. You'd get the same for less than a fiver.

Expensive for what it is, but who cares when one can open and close Velux windows, wherever they are, at a whim.
