This Guide is for the Double Lock professional power sweeping and not the Semi Pro power sweep rods that we also sell, some advantages in this listing apply to the Semi Pro set others do not, for example connecting rods together, Semi Pro screw together has a 4 strand power head instead of 8 (as an option) on the Double Lock rods, semi pro diameters are only in 12mm no accessories can be added apart from wire strands.

The Double Lock has no restrictions on the above

Power sweeping is a faster and more efficient cleaning process than traditional methods, you will get a cleaner chimney in half the time.

Double Lock rods are faster to assemble and disassemble than screwing rods together, push and lock, press and release.

You will clean rectangular chimneys.

Clean Faster, can take less than half the time and far less effort in cleaning.

Double Lock fittings have two stainless drive keys that drive the rods and stainless buttons that lock the rods together. The keys and keyways of the male & female do the driving, giving the locking mechanism a longer life in just securing the rods together and not driving the rotation of the rods.

All our rods with Double Lock connections can connect to each other and the same goes with the brush heads and attachments, no need to buy a brush head for each rod diameter just use a head on a 16mm or 14mm or 12mm rods, or even mix and match your rods to suit 14mm with a 12mm leader.

With power sweeping you don’t need lots of brush heads, the heads will clean from 4″ – 12″ 12″ – 25″ 25″ – 50″ creating a saving in its self and less carrying around a number of brushes.

The strands are hard wearing and replaced at a small cost.

Double Lock fittings are a combination of Stainless steel and brass / stainless steel is hard wearing to give extra strength and longevity, ideal for tile breaking and chain brushing.

Accessories including chain whip for removing extreme creosote and tar in all 3 sizes,  4″ – 12″ 12″ – 25″ 25″ – 50″ (use with extreme caution). Standard brushes for hand cleaning sizes of 4″ – 16″ if needed, also available are spare brush heads so you can have all 3 sizes ready to go, you can buy strands on their own and replace the strands with a simple Allen key that is supplied.
