Rodtech Click Brass 18mm Solid RodRodtech Click Brass 18mm Solid Rod. These hard-wearing solid rods are ideally suited for flues with a range of sizes from 450mm upwards. When confronted by a large flue, such as an inglenook, you may wish to use this rod together with the Rodtech Click 18mm Aluminium Rod. When using this rod with the aluminium rods, it is advisable to use a solid rod as a leader rod and alternate the solid and aluminium rods so that the entire run has a small amount of flexibility.
These rods are also used to break old or damaged clay liners by using the Tile breaker attachments. These rods are best used with a minimum 24v (ideally 36v) Cordless power drill.
Naval Grade Brass for Complete Corrosion Resistance
Rodtech only uses the highest quality material in the manufacturing of their Rods. This includes UK sourced Navel grade Brass; for hundreds of years, chimney sweeping equipment has been made from brass due to its nonferrous properties. Rodtech is proud to continue this tradition Rodtech Brass click ferrules are not susceptible to corrosion compared to Aluminium or stainless steel, giving unrivalled longevity.
Rodtech Brass Click Lock (single button advanced locking system)
This patented design allows the user a single button for connection and disconnection. The D shaped Ferrule does not rely on the button to keep the Rods connected; as the Rods Spin, they lock together, remaining secure, to disconnect the rods a simple flick of the wrist in the opposite direction that the rods were spinning while still connected to the drill the user will hear a “Click” place the connected ferrules in the palm of a hand to take the weight off and use the free hand to press the button. This advanced single button locking system allows for direction identification when using a camera.
Anti-Snag FerruleThis unique design has been added to all male ferrules to prevent catching on any shelves or lips within the flue. As the centrifugal force spins the Rod against the surface, the contours of this unique ferrule will lift itself off the obstruction and continue down with no damage sustained. A traditional rod can snag on the way down, get caught, and increase the risk of being cut or damaged, especially when at maximum flexibility.
Temperature resistant RodsThe Rodtech Rods are made from a unique copolymer that allows for extreme weather conditions without worry of failure. They have been designed to be fully functional at -35° maintaining their flexibility; the Rods can even be sterilised if they are ever used on a bee’s nest and need a clean.
Meter Length RodsThis is important for easy valuation as to the height of any obstruction within the flue.

Securely CrimpedEach Size Rodtech Rod is machine crimped with the exact amount of pressure to secure the ferrule to the Rod without affecting the integrity of either material.
Crimping is the most efficient way of manufacturing a rod as it leaves no protruding parts that could damage or catch in a liner.
Buttonless Drill Driver
Rodtech click technology can have no button on the drill driver to connect the rods while working from the fireplace/appliance. With a centrifugal force as the Rod spins, it will lock to the drill driver, remove simply stop the drill and slide the rod off, Saving time.
