telescopic light hanger

Have purchased several of these that were junk after a short time. Does anyone know where to get a good, heavy duty, aluminum, telescopic christmas light hanger? The longer the better. Thanks

Just go to Home Depot. Get the painters poles. They come in 12 foot all the way up to 24 foot. I used to have three poles on my truck, the 12, the 18 and the 24.

Then, find a hook of your choice, I'd use a rubber coated hanger, and duct tape it to your pole.

I agree the heavy duty painter poles are the way to go. I have two 18' and one 24'.

You can also use a small paint roller frame screwed to the end of the pole as a hook. Just remove the part the roller pad goes on, leaving only the rod frame. You can then bend it to suit your needs.

They are also great for take down. You can take down most homes without leaving the ground.

painters poles still only last a season also, once you get a bemd in them they are trashed.

I typically get 2-3 years out of the heavy duty ones.
