Most folks release the poles before deploying. Remember, you DO NOT take the poles off when stowing. The poles are self stowing.

I use pvc and I do leave them stowed. I was commenting about the painters poles. The release is to high even if stowed. Homemade poles work better, might be switching to metal conduit those from the pvc.

I guess it depends on the painter pole.

My uncle has two that when one end is fastened at the top, you just turn the other end of the pole (the part sticking down where you can easily get a hold of) to release. Once extended to the proper position, you simply turn that same pole again to tighten.

Come to think of it... if it's the kind you must grab the knob/sleeve to release... why couldn't you mount it upside down with the release at chest level?

The pole at the top is too large to go into the bracket without more modifications

I made my own brackets wide enough to hold a painter pole with the handle on the top. The hang up hole in the handle accepted top bolt and I use a paint pad on the bottom to save poking holes in my mat.

not hard, just pull down on the awning arm and it comes down low enough to attach/adjust the painter's poles I really like not having poles attached, the bother me in my mirror, I'm a bit OCD!

Powder coated brackets in White or Black can be done but will take approximately one week longer to ship and there will be an increased cost-approximately $20 per set.
