Spare plastic expander for SLS twist lock Leki Poles. The acronym SLS stands for Super Lock System and they are widely used in various modern leki poles. They are very easy to tell apart from old expanders as there is a slot in the middle and they are blue, green or black (old ones were bright orange). They wear out very slowly, but if you feel that your pole is no longer locking as securely as it used to, it might be time to get some new ones. Sometimes problems with SLS poles locking are caused by either corrosion of the screw, in which case a whole new section will be required or by the plastic red rocket (technical leki term wingnut or flugelmutter) loseing its grip, in which case you require a wingnut replacement. In the vast majority of cases however, an expander is all that is needed.

The SLS expanders come in 3 colour coded sizes related to the diameter of the section they need to grip against. Just choose the colour that you currently have. Sometimes called Leki Split Dowel, as there is a split in the middle which accepts a "wingnut" or rocket travelling up and down the screw.

If you really want to know everything there is to know about super lock split dowels read below.

  • 14mm size Green (actually measures 11.6 mm) is to be used on lower section of ultralite poles (which should have diameter of 11.6 mm)
  • 16mm size Blue (actually measures 13.6 mm) is to be used on lower section of classic full size poles or middle section of the ultralite poles (which should have diameter of 14 mm)
  • 18mm size Black (actually measures 15.7 mm) is to be used on middle section of classic full size poles (which should have diameter of 16 mm)

The SLS expanders are an evolution of the classic lock used by Leki. They are the strongest locking system ever used in poles with holding weight of over 140kg and require very little force to lock securely.

SLS expanders are also compatible with the earlier Easy Lock System (ELS) poles.

Royal Mail size and weight restrictions dictate that some heavier or bulky items have to be sent by a more costly courier service for certain locations.

Delivery Addresses - paying by Credit or Debit card

We can verify the accuracy of the billing address in the payment authorization and so will always be able to deliver to an address that has passed the required security level during that process. 

If delivery is requested to an address that is not the same as the Billing Address this can be entered in the checkout process. If this address is a verifiable business address there should be no delay to the processing of your order, however if the delivery address is to a residential address, possibly if the order is of a higher value, for security reasons we may have to ask for more information about the address, or even refuse the order.

 

Delivery Addresses - paying by Paypal

The most flexible way to get deliveries to almost any address.

Paypal will verify the cardholder address during the Paypal Express payment process. That exact address becomes "verified" and is then the address that we will send the delivery to. If you have a Paypal account then you will be able to get verified status for almost any address by going through a simple process. See your Paypal account for more information on this. This feature allows us to have complete confidence in despatching your order and guarantees there will be no delays.
