While the sleeve 6 is here shown as being relatively narrow and the sleeve 'I as relatively long, the proportions are not material so long as the combined length is substantial. `In the preferred embodiment, the opposed ends or faces of the sleeves abut when the sections are extended thus bearing any longitudinal pull on the handle.

- diametrically opposed slots This, however, is not an absolute essential, as will faces for the joined sections and maintain the` This function is' sections in axial alignment,

is held in a fixed plane with the portion I4 lying in a plane coinciding with the axis of the section 2. A compression spring Il interposed between the bottom of the casing I2 and the detent functions to urge the same radially outwardly. It is not necessary to provide means for retaining the detent against loss out of the casing for once the sections are assembled, as will presently be described, the sections themselves serve to retain the detent.

Completing the locking means are a pair of I8 formed in the receiving end of the section I. 'I'hese slots I8 are so positioned relative to the pins Ill and the bayonetslots in the sleeve 1 and the detent I I :that one or the other of the slots I8 will register particularly important when the sections are-extended and it is under that condition that the large over-all reach of sleeves 6 and 'I proves its value in maintaining the sections in straight, axial alignment even underthebendingforces to which the handle is subjected. Y

In the preferred embodiment, the sleevelis provided with a pair of diametrically opposed bayonet slots 8 which open throughv the inner or abutting end 9 of the sleeve 1. A pairof pins I project radially inwardly from the section I at diametrically opposed points'adistance equal to the 4clearance between the'sections l and 2"proper.` The pins I0 are so spaced from the sleeve 6 as to be receivable in the transverse portions of the bayonet slots before or preferably simultaneously with abutment'of the sleeves 6 and 1 as an incident to extension of the section 2. When vthe location of the pins I Il is such that they pass into the transverse portions of the slots 8 beforeabutment of the sleeves, the pins take both pull and `push strains and thus are subject to considerable wear. When the pins I0 pass into the transverse portions of the slots 8' simultaneously with abutment of the sleeves, the sleeves takey the pull strain, as already described, leaving the pins to take only thepush strain. It will be apparent to any mechanic that the pins I0 and slots 8 could be'reversed with the slots formed in sleeve 6 and the pinsl I0 carried lby section 2.

Means is provided to hold the sections I and 2 against relative rotational movement when in extended position and by so holding the sections against relative rotation locking the sections against relative axial movement. Inas'- much as all axial stresses are carried bythe sleeves 6 and I or the pins I0, the locking means can be of simple construction and needv be sturdy enough only to hold the sections against relative rotation. Hereinv the locking means takes the form of a detent II carried within a thimble-like casing I2 inserted in the section 2 diametrically thereof, spaced inwardly of the sleeve 1. The detent has a cylindrical, bulletlike portion I3 which terminates at its outer end in a ilatted or fin-like portion I4 extending both radially beyond the end of the portion I3 and laterally thereof. One corner of the portion I4 is rounded for purposes that will'presently become apparent. Disposed in the same plane as the 1in-like portion I 4 but projecting in an opposite, lateral direction is a lug I5 forming a radially outwardly facing shoulder. The casing I2 is formed with diametrically oppositely disposed slots IS in which the fin-like portion I 4l and the lug ISoperate and by Which the detent vwith the detent when the pins I0 are at the endslofV the transverse portions of the bayonet slots-,8.- -IThe longitudinal positioning of the various cooperating elements is such that when the sections are in locked, extended position the lug' I5 `remainsf vunder and'inwardlyof the slotted areaof section Ijso'as to-retain the'detentagainst loss when the fin-like portionf|4 projects into and throughithe slot I8. When thensections are telescoped; theentire detent is, of course, Within the section I and'thus is held against loss out of 'itscasing It is believed apparent from the above that to lock the section 2 in extendedposition it is only necesary that it vbe pulled out ofthe section I as far as'possible, rotated toV bring the pins III intoregistry with the bayonet slots 8 which will then permit of a-short additional axial movement of the section 2, and then a further relative rotational movement to position the pins I0 in the Ainner en'ds of the transverse portions of the bayonet slots. (The rounded corner on the 1in portion- I4 prevents the detent from catching on the vsleeve 6.) As the pins reach that point, one of the slots I8 in the section I and the detent come into registrywith the'detent automatically'projected radially outwardly with its portion I4 engaging one-ofthe slots I8 to lock thev sections vagainst relativevr rotational movement and simultaneously against relative axial movement. The telescoping of'the sections is just as simple as the locking thereof vin extended position. All that the user need do is to depress the detent, rotate the sections relative to one another, and then push section 2 axially into section I.

The'jointand the llocking means between sections 2 and 3 are identical with those just described 'and'were there additional sections they too would be joined by identical means.v Similar parts in both joints have been given alike reference number for ease in identification and understanding. I

In constructingv and assembling the respective sections ofthe telescoping handle,'the sleeves 6 and 1, the pins I0, the detent II and the recesses I 8 are first formed or mounted in or on the sections as described. It Will be appreciated that-infplace -of sleevesthe sections could be turned to' the desired diameters. Section 3 is then inserted into section 2 vfrom theleft as viewedin Fig. 1 or 3. These sections are then inserted into section I also from the left. The remaining or free end of section I is then closed by closure 4. This closure is herein formed simply 4by splitting the end of section I into several parts and turning the parts radially inwardly. The sections are now permanently securedl together.V

After assembly, the smallest section 3 is proascenso 3 bodiment shown, a nuty is loosely V,fitted over" the section 3 and forced into `the end of the section is aso'cket"2i having `a "recesssquare in slarged diameterfzon'.tiieflast?,insertedfendeon cross section. The socket has a flange '22'for retaining: the -nut 2U. The nut120'has arpartial flange .22 and is internally threaded forlgrasp iiigthethre'adedshank of a gardening imple-r meiitovtherlike. As best seen-.in-Fig. 2, Igardi-in-` ing-'Eimplenrents such as afrake'fZfl and faihoe" are provided-.with a shank which has a squared stud endwhicnnts'into the socket 2|, and-"a threaded portion-221. The Ynut- '28 tlieadedly-V engages this Athreat-:led fportio'n i521? 'to heldin@ implement ente the teieseopingrhaneie. It will be understood that a variety of different tools or implements could be substituted for those shown.

The sections l 2 and 3 are preferably of about equal length so that all may be telescoped within the section I. If the sections 2 or I are longer than section 3 they will project when telescoped, and if shorter the extended handle is not as long as possible and section 2 may get caught behind sleeve 6.

Preferablyl section 2, when received fully in section I should be flush at the outer end and section 3 should be just a trifle longer to accommodate nut 20.

We claim as our invention:
