As "Harry" has to moved every few days to be effective and that it's a chore tying him up again, I've devised these devices attached to the wall.

So, all I do now, is pick up the pole, walk to the next position and drop it into the holder. The holders will eventually be painted the same colour as the wall so they'll blend in.

The only problem I have still, is the pole telescoping down without warning. Crying or Very sad Am devising an answer to this problem as well. Watch this space. Very Happy

Drill a hole in top of the bottom half of the rod put a bolt thru it loose nut to secure and allow easy release

Pole is similar to a fibreglass fishing rod, in lots of sections, that slide in and out of each other. You couldn't put bolts through them. The answer will be tape of some description, wrapped around each joint.
