I have a really stupid question so here goes; I have 15-18 ft expandable fiberglass poles mounted on my hard top. I have not used them because if they are extended how do I get them slid back into one another again? I cannot reach them very easily and was thinking about a piece of rope tided to the outer most extension to pull the pole back inside of itself. I have never seen it done that way so how do you men suggest I do it? As I'm a 65 year old man I should not be climbing or hanging on stuff to accomplish this anymore. Thank you, Bob
