Top Fin Multi-Purpose Aquarium Cleaning Tool
Great concept, poorly made.
I love the idea of these all-in-one tools. You can have specialized tools for various types of cleaning without having 5 different tools to store. Unfortunately this product is pretty much unusable due to it's design.
I had a hard time figuring out how to switch out the different heads (and accidentally dismantled one in the process). There were no instructions on the packaging for guidance. Once I finally managed to pry off the head that was attached when I bought the thing, I couldn't get any of the other heads on. I spent about 10 minutes trying to get the corner cleaner to attach. Once I finally got it on I thought the others would be easier since I thought I'd figured out the trick to attaching them. Nope. I removed the corner cleaner more easily than the first time, but found it impossible to attach any of the other heads (even the one that had originally been attached that I spent 10 minute trying to get off). I gave up on the thing after another 10 minutes of struggling and injuring my wrist in the process.
The locking mechanism on the pole (so that you can adjust the length) is also pretty useless. You have to work hard to adjust the thing when it's unlocked, and when it's locked it still moves around.
Overall, this item just needs to be made in a way that is actually functional and then I think it would be a great product.
