Description

What a find these were! These are very rare Tote-Um-Pole clamps that would have gone on the drain molding of a car to carry your fishing rods! I've only ever seen one other listing for these and I believe they are 1940's but if anyone out there has anymore info. on them I'd love to know!

They are No. 120 and made by the Hanel Products Company...300 Venetian Drive..Clearwater. FLA. You can carry up to 12 small poles, no tool installation and are hailed as "strong, compact, rustproof and lightweight"...I'm not sure what kind of classic car these would have gone on...I wouldn't even know where to find the "drain molding!"

The box is really neat with a vibrant yellow and red design featuring a totem pole and a little flap (see crease area) that folds down to take your clamps out...I believe it to be new old stock..they don't appear to have ever been used!

Box measures 4" x 6" x 1"...wonderful collectible for the car or fishing enthusiast!

I ship to the US lower 48 but I'm happy to ship internationally..please contact me with your zip/postal code prior to purchase if you would like an accurate shipping amount to your destination..this cool little item will travel to it's new home via the shipping method of your choice....

Thanks for looking!

Returns & exchanges

You may return the item for a full refund of the item price excluding shipping cost if the item is not as described in my writeup and with my photos. Returns must be shipped within 3 days of you taking receipt the of your new purchase and buyer pays all shipping, that includes return shipping and the original shipping amount.. Funds will be returned via the same method of payment once the item has been received.

I am always willing to send additional photos if requested, just convo. me for more. Please note that I do my best to describe the item's condition both in my write up and photos, but these are vintage items so please be aware that they will often reflect their age (which is why we love them isn't it?).

If you would like insurance (or additional insurance...Priority mail packages have a standard $50 insurance coverage but other shipping methods do not)....please convo. me and I'd be happy to get you an estimate based on the item amount...I cannot be held responsible for loss or damage incurred in shipping. If you would like delivery signature confirmation etc. please do likewise

Shipping policies

We ship most orders within 3 to 5 business days (additional time may be required if you request sizing or if specifically indicated on an item's listing page). Note: As a new store Etsy puts a 3 day hold on funds before beginning the transfer process...therefore we usually ship on the 5th day when the funds have cleared until the Etsy probabtion period has ended.

Items are shipped priority mail flat rate shipping whenever possible, however I sometimes will ship Standard Post for larger items as well as USPS first class if I find that it is a more cost effective alternative.

*****IMPORTANT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING INFORMATION***** PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE SO I CAN GET A MORE ACCURATE SHIPPING ESTIMATE.
Please note that all customs fees, duties, or import taxes are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

Additional policies

Our goal is for our customers to be as excited to get their new acquisition as a little kid opening their Christmas presents!! Nothing is worse than thinking you've found the perfect treasure...checking the mailbox everyday..and then being let down when it arrives on your doorstep dusty and dirty and unceremoniously dumped in the bottom of a box!! We leave our treasures in their original vintage state so as not to devalue them but everything is cleaned before shipping and wrapped carefully to arrive at it's destination as safely as possible.
From beginning to end we strive to make the process of buying online as easy and hassle free as possible...if for any reason you aren't happy please contact me directly and I'll be more than happy to figure out a solution to any problem...
Thanks!!
