Where to find sectional aluminum pole?

I'm building one of those tools that scrape snow off my roof. I'm trying to find spring-locked aluminum pole but I couldn't find any. All I found was flag pole and they do not have spring locked on those sectional pieces. Any suggestion is much appreciated.

You can buy sections that screw together... they are sold with the concrete bull floats. Not sure if that helps.

Try aluminum swimming pool poles. You want the sectional poles used with pool vacuums.

The older 60s and 70s ones screw together, the 80s to now ones use a 2-pin spring clip.

I don't know exactly what features you want to build yours with, but have you considered a pre-made one?

With the end of winter (allegedly), they're going on sale here, and cost as much for the whole assembly as a pool pole costs by itself.
