Love this little sweeper. the handle comes in 3 steel tubes that screw together nice and tight. Tried it straight away and it picked up all the bits and pieces on both carpet and hardwood floor. The containers are spring loaded, easy to open and empty. It is nice and light glides well and hangs up in a suitable cupboard on a hook. Well worth the price. Great for when you just want to sweep the floor quickly. Very prompt delivery.
