1.8m Aerial Mast
Not upto an outside job
Due to a chimney being replaced on the house, I decided to replace all fittings with new. Aerials (TV and DAB), chimney kit were all made by Labgear and of good quality and included all the fittings. However, bought this product which as soon as I picked it up, I should have known something was wrong. The cardboard tube in which it is packaged weights more, however, decided to persevere. Aerials installed and I returned to the ground, however it was evident even in a slight breeze the mast was bending and wobbling too much (and especially compared to the neighbours). It was decided there and then to revert back to the original mast, job done and is as "solid as a rock". This new mast will be returned, it is not up to an outside job, I wish I had taken heed of previous reviews. If you use, I'm sure you will be returning to the roof shortly, as the first strong wind will, I'm sure. bend this mast.

Does the job
Its a pole! however, it will be crushed if over tightened, but is fit for the job, and a slight crush will stop it turning in the wind.
Good product for the money

Trust other reviews
Ordered for next day collection then went home and read others reviews. As quite a hefty aerial was going on this i decided not to trust it and returned the item.
It did, indeed, seem not 'man enough' for the job.

Labgear 1.8m Aerial Mast
Very pleased with this purchase. Quality product that does the job. It was very well packaged in a sturdy cardboard tube, and very pleased that Screwfix had it in stock so I could watch some tele at my chalet over the weekend!
Installed a satellite dish on it and although it was quite windy there was very little flexing.
This mast is made by Labgear - a very reputable and quality company and I'd highly recommend it.
