A telescope, with a hexagonal cross-section, which, in order to
telescope in, and out, requires untightening using an Allen key type
of arrangement, and then tightening back up using an Allen key type
of arrangement when it is in position (which is almost always fully
extended out). The tightening
can be achieved because the
telescope itself goes around a corner, like an Allen key does. Well, it
doesnt go around a corner, it already is around a corner. Its not as
if it is currently in the act of going away from you and around a
corner over there. It is already bent like that.
