Unger OptiLoc™ Aluminum Telescopic Extension Pole (3-section)
A quality pole for professional cleaning!
The Unger OptiLoc™ Aluminum Telescopic Extension pole features solid anodized, extruded-drawn aluminum sections and a two-piece collar design with replaceable inner and outer threads. It comes with an Unger ErgoTec Locking Cone (NCAN0) with locking button that’s very versatile for attaching many different tools.
Unger recently updated the collars and grips to be more ergonomically designed for comfort. There’s now an UNLOCK arrow icon on the collar, and the grip has a new anti-slip end cap to keep it in place when it’s on the ground and to protect the pole against damage.
Work safely from the ground, eliminating the need for climbing or ladders!
How long is this pole?
The Unger OptiLoc™ 3-section pole comes in five different sizes. The size listed is the fully EXTENDED LENGTH. To figure out the collapsed length, divide the listed size by three and add about 12 inches to account for the pole tip and collars.
Example: The 6 foot pole would collapse down to about 48 inches.
What tools fit onto this pole?
The Unger ErgoTec Locking Cone (NCAN0) is the pole tip that comes on the end of the OptiLoc pole. It attaches in three different ways:
The top of the pole tip is tapered. This allows you to attach tools (like most window cleaning tools) with a friction fit. Push the tool’s handle onto the pole tip and give it a twist while pushing it on. This will give a firm connection that stays in place and is easy to remove with a simple pull and twist.
Standard ACME thread
Many dusters use this common, wide thread that’s on the very end of the pole tip.
The ErgoTec locking button works with some Unger tools. Tools with a lock icon them and with “ErgoTec” in the name will lock on.
NOTE: The locking button on the Unger ErgoTec Locking Cone is specific to Unger tools. For other brands, you’ll want to use the friction fit or ACME thread option, depending on the tool.
BONUS ATTACHMENT! This attachment option actually involves REMOVING the Unger ErgoTec Locking Cone (NCAN0). Some Unger tools (like light bulb tools and the Unger Cranked Joint Angle Adapter) require removing the pole tip and clicking the tool directly onto the aluminum end of the pole.

It’s available in either nylon or zinc and is designed specifically to work with the Unger OptiLoc™ pole. You can find it listed in the related items at the bottom of the page.
