Quote:Quote:i am not sure i understand your problem. when does it flex and are you able to extend the upper cage on the poles?? The tube is collapsable. So I must extend tube before I use.But the slip of poles with upper cage not work well now. The peoblem just happen when I extend it,when I collapse it work well. I try use some lubricating oil,but no use.
