• I don't know but I have the same question. I can't get the basket inserted far enough to fit into the groove. Did you ever figure this out?

  • So I googled around some more and found the answer. I put the baskets in boiling water for about 10 seconds and then they slipped on with just a little force.

  • I didn't realize they had to be affixed to the pole! The fifth time I used them they fell off and were lost in the snow! There were certainly no directions...

  • THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I was trying to jam the basket onto the tips forever. The water has to be BOILING as specified - I tried hot and it didn't work. I heated a pot of boiling water and dropped the basket right in there for about 10 seconds as instructed by the comment above. Worked perfectly!

  • This worked! Thank you so much! My friend spent an hour trying to get these on for me and this saved us!
