I've been nursing my hking poles for quite a few years now..and starting to think that it's about time I take 'em apart, inspect/replace worm parts and a selective application of s.grease, but instructions that came with the Black Dimond poles ( BD flickloc, trail shock)has been long lost. does anyone konw how these come apart?online insturctions?

I’ve been using Black Diamond Alpine CF poles forever but never had any with shocks. After repairing frayed wrist straps and replacing carbide tips for a while a flicklock finally broke. That can be replaced but I simply bought new poles and the wrist straps and the flicklocks are a new and much better design. Mine have always been super easy and intuitive to take apart but then they don’t have shocks. Good luck with yours. Best poles ever.
