Shurhold Products manufactures
“The Complete Solution” handle and accessories kit for your Boat and RV. With beautiful
sunshine and 88 degree weather we decided to test this product and some of its 40+
attachments. Did it perform as advertised?
The core of the system is the American-made aluminum handle, which Shurhold tells
us is triple anodized and heat treated for strength and to prevent corrosion. For
our test we used one of the telescoping handles which was 40” collapsed and 72”
without an attachment when extended. You can also order a version that will adjust
from 60” to 108”. The release detent is large and the inner extension has a red
line painted on it to make adjustments a snap. This is all part of the exclusive
SHUR-LOK quick release system, which, for the purpose of this test, passed with
We added the Curved Adapter and the soft deck brush and got to work cleaning up
after a great day on the water. Now any of you who do your boating in the Long Island
Sound are probably familiar with the interesting residues left behind, so we used
the Yacht Brite “Brite Wash” boat soap to remove the residue.
Red mark makes for easy alignment when adjusting.
Clicking around from the brush to the “Water Sprite” mop to the flexible water blade,
we completed our clean-up within thirty minutes. Shurhold offered up to forty different
attachments including eleven types of brushes, hooks, paddles, mops and fishing
accessories like nets, gaff and taggers.

• Handle is easy to use, rugged, and accessories attach with ease.
• The brush has a good sized surface area to help the job go faster, but more importantly,
the bristles get into all the different surfaces, nooks, textured decking, and areas
• The flexible Water Blade™ was excellent for drying smooth surfaces, and the adjustable
adapter made it easy to get every part of the hull and have the blade at the optimum
angle. The entire blade conforms to all surfaces very well.
• Now we also put the handle system through a bit of a stress test, albeit unintentionally
when one of our crew exited the boat. As they stepped back off the trailer, they
landed right on top of the handle with the curved adapter and Water Blade still
attached. We are happy to report that the application of a 225 pound person did
not bend the handle nor did it impact the telescoping action. With what seems like
everyone and their brother selling boat care products you never know if what you
buy is worth it. Well, BoatTEST can confirm that the Shurhold products are well
worth it and work as advertised.
