Get a mate to help, each grip one side of the joint about 8 inches either side and twist in opposite directions but do NOT hold an eye for extra grip because you could break it.

Hi sicarthew,

Not sure if i can explain this right :-S

Hold the rod behind the back of your knees with the joint where you can see it and a hand either side, as you pull outwards push with your knees too.

If this fails...

I would heat the joint in steam for a few mons so he joint expands(same solution as the ice cube but works better as the outer joint will expand before the inner)
thats what i did when i had the same prob!!

with the ice pack the outer will contract before the inner compounding the problem!

this happened me last year.
i was told to put a bag of ice/water around the part that slides in, just at the joint and to steam the outer part. leave for a minute or 2 and pull it with another person. it worked.
i was told that ice and water is colder than just ice(didnt make sense to me). the cold should shrink it a tiny bit while the steam should let the outer part expand slightly.


when you do get it apart give it a light rub of fine sand paper and it should be ok.
hope this helps.
