The pole has to be forced tightly in the scoop. Called Ckg for that ifo. Great Scoop and pole! Well in using a metal detector on the clean sandy beaches that attract many vacationers. Compact and lightweight. Heavy-duty stainless steel sand scoop, perfect for sand and water metal detecting.
This is a quality product and works great. Thanks to (Fun with Jim) for recommendations on what works for him. The scoop is pretty light and sifts real easy.
