I have 3 problems with this item. 1. The hole in the top didn't come close to matching up with my button lock. I had to drill a new hole about 3/4" above your hole. 2. the slip joint is a lot looser than my old one even though it is 9 years old. I hope it holds up. 3.The other day my wike dropped the wand on the floor and the center adjustmet button popped off. I was able to snap it back on and it is working.
