Slim Telescopic Floor Sweeping Broom 2 "Great broom. Shame about the locking mechanism." Mrs Sutton 19 April 2018 I am now on my second broom after the locking mechanism failed on the first broom. Sad to say the exact same thing has happened. The broom handle will no longer lock. I am very disappointed, as the broom itself is excellent! A note from the team Thanks for placing your review. I trust the replacement we've sent has performed better.
