Q: Are whisker pole lock repair kits available for purchase?
A: The internal locking mechanism in Forespar® twist-lock poles can wear with time and lose their ability to lock. Replacement lock kits are available for purchase online. To help prolong the longevity of the locks, use fresh water to clean your pole and never use a lubricant as this can cause the lock to swell and become dysfunctional. Additionally, twist-lock poles should only be used on boats of length 30ft and under as larger boats can place too heavy a load on twist-lock poles.
