Converted a K-Tek Klassic to a K-Tek Klassic Pro


Recommended Posts

File this DIY under having more time than brains. I have a K-Tek Klassic pole with an internal cable. I want the removable-head feature of the Klassic Pro so that I can insert or remove the cable at-will without the need to un-solder. Of course, the easy answer is to sell the Klassic and buy a Klassic pro. But I really like to fabricate for the sake of fabricating and seeing what I can do.

 

The first step is to heat up the head to soften the epoxy and then pull off the metal head. Then I made the two new parts that epoxy onto the pole and the head. Now the head can be unscrewed and the cable removed.

Here's version 2.  I thought why not make my own head, so now I've replaced the K-Tek head with my own, eliminating the holes for the knot. It makes for one less piece on the top.
