If the 3/8" thread on your QuickPole damaged and you would like to replace the steel tip yourself you can refer to this instructions.
The process is not trivial and can damage the carbon tube if not done correctly.
If you feel unsure about the procedure, it is better to return your QuickPole to Ambient.
Here is what you need to do:
Heat the steel tip to about 120° C with a heat fan whilst protecting the carbon fiber boom from heat.
The glue will start steaming a bit.
At this point, put a screw driver through the hole and twist the tip so it goes loose, then pull it out.
After thorough cleaning, a new tip can be glued in.
Before applying the glue, you need to make sure that the surfaces of both the boom segment and the tip are absolutely clean!
Any high quality two-component glue should do the trick. We use Locktite EA 3421.
You can order spare parts for QuickPole booms at your dealer or directly at Ambient if no dealer is available.
The part number for the QP series 4 and QS tip is V2AQP.
The part number for the QL, QX and QXS series tip is V2AQL.
