How to adjust your poles?
Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust: unscrew the middle section beneath the ring of the lower section, adjust to desired height (in cm), and screw back on firmly but not too tight. Do the same with the lower section. NEVER GO OVER THE STOP LINE or the pole may snap during use.

Directions for use:
Before heading off: always check that your poles are properly tightened. On downward slopes, or during strong pushes in the mountains, for example, you can adjust your poles to make them longer. When walking uphill, you can use the wrist strap for support, but when walking downhill, it's better to remove the strap so that the pole won't get it your way if you fall.

Test
Our field testers: all our poles are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. In particular, our "Mission Tests" bring together the product manager with people who have no affiliation to QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.

Test Product
Bending and compression tests are carried out in our labs on the full-length poles, to make sure they remain effective and can withstand the strain if the hiker has to lean on them heavily. Tests are also carried out to assess how the tightening systems cope with pulling, tightening and repeated stress, and pull tests on the tips and handles simulate poles getting stuck when in use.

Stockage Tips
Store the poles in a dry place, do not tighten the attachments.

Broke on first excursion
Used for 1 week or less
Used these for the first time this weekend. Worked well whilst out but on return I couldn't get one to retract again as the button seemed stick. Eventually managed to push the button in but it went too far and is now stuck inside the inner pole which renders the pole useless. Can't recommend when things go wrong after one use.
Simple and strong walking sticks good value
Used for 3 to 6 months
Easy to use like an old fashioned tent pole with buttons. Very light but with a good size diameter shaft to maintain stiffness. The only flaw I can see longterm is there is no way of adjusting the friction which keeps the pole compacted. A couple of times the pole extended itself while attached to my rucksack. Given how cheap the pole are, its probably worth sorting some DIY solution with 50p worth of shockcord
