All RPoles are guaranteed against manufacturing defects for *12 months from date of purchase, provided it has been sold by us. Within this period the RPole will be repaired free of charge, except for a handling/transportation costs. All repairs must be carried out within the UK by RPole and all parts returned to us for repair.
* We may extend the guarantee period beyond the statutory 12 months at our sole discretion as stated at the time of the sale. Currently we are offering a 3-year guarantee from July 2018 which covers manufacturing defects in equipment as originally packed by us and applicable only under conditions of recommended use of the product as described in the Owner's Manual and providing that instructions for installation and maintenance and use have been complied with.
It's very important to move the silicone frame sleeves to the end of the frame if they start to move down the frame leg. If the silicone sleeve isn't located at the end of the frame, this will make the RPole less stable and also put a great strain on the pins. This could make them come lose and will, in turn, lead to more movement in your RPole in use.
We recommend you read the owners manual before assembling and using your new RPole.
Maintenance advice is available on our video tutorials page. We recommend you have a look at these, in particular the 'Base Maintenance' video to see how to maintain your RPole. If you keep the pole erected for a long period of time the pole can get stuck in the base so it’s always a good idea to remove it at least every few weeks and lubricate the small rubber ring. We highly recommend that the silicone oil is used once every two months based on light use. Please do not use other lubricants like Vaseline or a water-based oil, as these tend to dry out and or 'glue' the pole in the boss!
Your guarantee is subject to a proven maintenance record after the first 12 months. This will ensure many years of trouble-free pole use. Please print these out from our website and keep safe with your RPole. These will also be useful to prove you keep equipment safe and well maintained for Health & Safety regulations. Please visit our website for your maintenance records.
To keep your pole clean, we recommend YOU WIPE IT DOWN WITH A SOFT CLOTH AND VODKA as this cleans, sterilizes, dries very quickly and is hypoallergenic.
We recommend you retain the cardboard tubes your RPole was delivered in and place straight into the pole bag. This will protect the poles and prolong the life of the bag
As your RPole is a high-quality stainless steel metal, scratches can be polished out. Please contact us if you would like more information on this.

OVERLOADING, RENTAL, DOUBLES PRACTICE, POLESILKS, COMPETITION USE OR FAILURE TO PROPERLY MAINTAIN YOUR RPOLE: will void your guarantee as is an uncontrolled environment. Doubles practice, attaching Pole Silks or TRX systems (or similar) or competition use are beyond the design criteria of the RPole and may cause damage or failure of equipment. Failure to lubricate the 'O' ring or locate the pole correctly in the base can lead to failure of the pole over time (applies to spindle poles ONLY manufactured between 2012 and 2013) due to extra stress applied to the spindle if not seated correctly within the base.
