Sand in my Ktek Boom!

Hello!

 

I just had a shoot that was on a beach and some fine sand got into my Ktek boom pole. Now the collars are gritty and its scratching the poles. Any suggestions on how to clean it? I don't think the collars come off so easily because there is two strips of plastic at the bottom of each section preventing the collar to come out. 

 

Any suggestions on how to clean it?

Any advice on how to prevent this from happening again?

 

Thanks!

take it apart completely, wash with soapy water, use a soft brush and some grease cleaner to get the silicon grease off the threads, wash again with soapy water, rinse well and then drip/air dry and put back together and add very little silicon grease to the threads...
