Our client came to us with their existing product but with the desire to improve it's function as well as to create some ownership and potential IP.
Their existing pole length adjustment mechanism was made of multiple parts - we managed to rationalise these to just 3 parts with the adjustment being made using a simple but effective screw thread which is designed to be easy to use even with gloves on. The screw thread design idea was translated to the pro poles multiple head attachment allowing easy swapping of heads for different situations.
We have since designed user friendly robust hand grips to enable easier handling of the pro pole as well as including a handy hanging loop for storage.
