Abstract: An interior sleeve for a pair of telescoping tubular members, in which the sleeve is mounted in an outer tubular member. The sleeve has locking studs on its exterior surface which are aligned with locking apertures in the outer tubular member. The sleeve has an annular flange disposed on the outer end of the sleeve to abut to the outer end of the outer tubular member and a longitudinal slot to allow compression of the sleeve to fit into the tubular member.
Abstract: A tool holding apparatus for use with extension poles has a substantially hollow longitudinal handle for mounting on an end of an extension pole. A tubular support member is rotatably engaged with the upper end of the handle and is rotatable about an axis perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the handle. The tubular support member has tool-engaging means on at least one end for supporting a tool. Means for rotating the tubular support member relative to the handle are provided. The device also includes stop means disposed on the outer wall of the handle for limiting the rotation of the tubular support member beyond a predetermined point.
Abstract: An interior clamping device for tubular poles which includes a driver disposed in one tubular member with a tapered end portion projecting outwardly from the tubular member. An expandable sleeve is disposed in a second tubular member. Locking means removably secure the driver to the sleeve by a fastener so that when the driver is rotated in one direction the expandable sleeve is moved radially outwardly against the inner surface of the tube to lock the tubes together.
