Extension Handle

A new telescoping extension handle from AMES Taping Tools has a universal tip that accommodates 4 different finishing heads, eliminating the need for multiple, tool-specific handles, saving cost and time.


The 88X Universal Extension Handle replaces other handles that work only with a single finishing head thereby offering a 4-in-1 solution for contractors. Finishers can now use the same 88X professional-grade handle with 4 common finishing tools: the AMES nail spotter; corner roller; corner applicator and corner finisher. Plus, an optional threaded tip adapter allows the 88X handle to be used with tools such as paint roller frames or cleaning tools.


The comfortable, non-slip handle adjusts from 3 1/2’ to 6 1/2’ with a touch of the quick-release position lock that prevents slippage or twisting. The heavy-duty handle extends contractors’ reach up to 10' for easy finishing of ceilings and corners.


The lightweight fiberglass outer pole has a heavy-duty aluminum core for lasting strength and repeated performance.


Features include a larger diameter for a comfortable and secure grip, and positive locking stops for quick, seamless and confident adjustments anytime. The aluminum design delivers one of the most durable handles in a surprisingly lightweight package, and the optional threaded adapter allows the attachment of sanding tools, texture brushes and paint rollers.
