This is the stowed position you keep it in when you are not using it. It does not take up much room in your vehicle VS if it were in the fixed position:
Simply unclip the handle and screw it into the base to make the T connection.
Handle extends to 4'... great for reaching and pulling snow off your vehicle without effort. The foam head will not scratch anything. $12.00 on amazon... can't beat it.
I am loving this sleeping 3 hours business 2 nights in a row now. I feel great this morning. I would like to do that every night. Well, time to get ready for the day, it is getting early, got to get going...
