Q. I have a pair of lekisport Titan walking poles.
One section on one of the poles no longer tightens ... can anyone offer any suggestions as to how I can repair this - even supply me with the name of a supplier who could sell a replacement part ( I can't find anyone in the UK)

A. Unscrew them and take the section out. It could be that through use of them the tightening mechanism is jammed, dead easy to resolve if that is the case.
All you need to do is loosen off the part and connect it back up. If that doesn't solve it then I'm out of ideas.

A. When I encountered a similar problem while trekking in Nepal, our guide solved it by extending the pole almost as far as it would go (ie beyond the normal limit) and then tightening it. After loosening the pole, it could then be tightened in its normal position. I have since used this method successfully on several occasions.
