Sticking to conventional wisdom that says “don’t change a classic design that works,” concrete trowels haven’t changed much in the last 50 years. But the Cam-Lock trowel adds modern kick: adjustability.
It features a quick-release handle that slides along a central bar channel to allow you to adjust the grip’s position for maximum comfort and reach. The idea is that you can transfer maximum force to any part of the trowel by flipping the black lever, moving the handle to that location along the bar, and pushing. You can even add a second handle for extra control and force.
And since it’s adjustable, just one of these trowels could replace three or four of the old fixed kind, which makes its $20 street pricing an easier pill to swallow.
