1.8m Aerial Mast
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.

Not Fit for Purpose
Bought & installed this aerial pole just before Xmas, come 3 weeks later and it has bent. Not suitable at all for use as a rooftop aerial mast!

Bought this just prior to Xmas and fitted to the gable end of the house. The tube finish seemed ok but the tube wall was quite thin. Clamping to the mounting bracket it seemed that the tube would begin to squeeze out of shape really easy. I eased off and repositioned the clamp but it certainly wasn't as rigid as the old tube it was replacing. It swayed quite considerably in the lightest of breezes and within 3 weeks, after the first strong blow, it bent at the clamping point. I've since removed it and put the old one back.Examining one against the other it seems to me that the wall of the tube is quite thin and inherently weak. Sad to say it was a complete waste of time and money buying and fitting it.
