Our polypropelene red rods are manufactured in two types, namely the lockfast type and the universal type.
The Universal Rods use a "screw in" method to join the rods together, and have the advantage of being a cheaper alternative to the Lockfast Rods.
The rods are not as strong as the spring steel rods and are not suitable for heavy duty work. However in the case of domestic drains these rods provide an ideal solution, combining light weight and flexibility.
If you are in need of "do it yourself" products then these are what you need.
The main disadvantage with universal rods is that they come apart if rotated in the wrong direction.
Our Universal Rods are only available in 1m lengths.
