K2 Carbon pole basket change

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I usually change pole baskets using the "hammer and pliers/vice " method.  The ski tech at a local tahoe shop told me not to use that method on the K2 5 Karat ski poles.  He said a special tool is needed for that pole to change out the baskets.  Anybody know if this information is correct for this specific pole?  If so, is there a workaround for us mortals that don't have such a tool?

sorry, don't know, and that's the problem isn't it. K2, why am I not surprised. Don't support that company, ever.

You could carefully heat it with a heat gun and easily pry it off.
