ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS When the Happy Captain Hook package arrives please open it carefully as there  are some small parts included. (In particular, a small SS self tapping screw).  Take the hook with you to a major local paint or hardware store so that when you  select a paint-roller pole that suits your boats need for length extension, and  robustness.  We strongly recommend an aluminium extendable pole which locks its length with a “pin-in-hole” positive mechanism, (ie not one which is twisted to lock  the length as these can collapse in use). Confirm that the polethread is compatible  with the ⅝ inch Acme tapered thread which is the paint-roller standard thread.   BEWARE some poles (EG) for mops or brooms, have different thread.   Buy the suited pole, and then screw the Happy Captain boat hook head to it.
