Ours snapped right at the telescoping part in the middle of the shovel. Shoddy construction; I'd recommend getting something made out of metal.

I once was foolish enough to try one of these relatively small and fragile shovels by Hoppy. I soon found out, unfortunately, that not only is the thing made of the very cheapest of cheap plastic, it can break easily and it doesn't shovel much snow well.

In fact, it can lift so little snow that with any real snowfall it's useless. You'll be shoveling out forever and a day!

If you want to give a small child a snow shovel to play with while you do the real work of shoveling out, then get this. Otherwise, for people who drive cars and people wanting to shovel snow will be very disappointed.

Don't waste your money!

The extendable shaft broke between the connection easily.
Now, it won't collapse and the handle is loosen.
It's hard to use a broken shovel.

I usually give 3 stars for something less satisfactory that I don't recommend for people to buy. This product is worse than that. I saw this just at the entrance of a well-known grocery store. I thought it really looks nice and a clever tool.

There is a foam to place your hand in the middle which provides a nice comfortable grip. The telescoping part just extends a few inches, it should be longer so you don't have to stoop too much. But the main problem is it breaks too easily. It detaches it the middle where it extends. Once it detaches, you cannot use it anymore. Not even super glue can fix it. This thing is also too light that it feels more like a beach toy. I hate to call a product a POC, but this one fits the boot.

Broke at the sliding joint on the second (light) use.
I got this to dig out the car in snow and it failed just when I needed it.
Find another shovel.

I had the same experience as a lot of the other reviewers, it would seem. The shaft broke in the middle the first time I used it. Snapped like a twig under just a little bit of stress. Don't buy it.

I bought this to place in the trunk of my car in case of an emergency. I thought I'd made a good puchase until I had to use the shovel. The telescopic handle would not lock in place, causing the shovel to rotate, rendering it virtually useless. I don't know if this is common to all these Hopkins Shovels, but I will not buy another. Mine went in the garbage. Do not recommend whatsoever as it may fail you as it did me.
