Great concept, poor execution
on March 27, 2013
Definitely the most well built ice scraper I've owned. The telescoping handle works great and locks secure, the rubberized grip is ergonomic and easy to hold on to, the silicone like "blade" works well on slushy windows. The serrated ice edge works well also, but is a little akward to use on horizontal side and back windows. Sounds like the perfect tool to combat the cold Midwest winters? There is one large negative to this scraper, on the main part of this scraper, the plastic blade has been gouged in numerous areas from scraping ice and snow. So the blade is no longer even and level, and now no longer will scrape a smooth path off my windows. It acts like every other cheap scraper I've bought and used, and then thrown away because it won't clear my windows.
Perhaps a brass blade would have been better, or more durable plastic.
The plastic piece that you use to tighten the extending pieces of the pole cracked today, rendering the ice scraper even more useless. I was expecting it to last several years, and didn't last two seasons. My review stands at one star, stay away from this!
