Several years ago I purchased a rake that I believe was branded with the
Scott's name. It had a long yellow handle, and what made it unique was that
the head of it contained an insert into which you could plug any of several
head implements. In my case, I had a lawn rake, a spring leaf rake, and an
edging tool. Each implement was very heavy duty, with the insert piece made
of cast aluminum. I've had it for years, but recently moved, and in the
process, someone walked off from the garage with the rake handle and the
garden rake insert. I still have the other two attachments, and would love
to acquire a replacement. I don't see the rake on the Scott's website
anymore. I'm sure someone made the devices for them. Anyone know where I
might find such a thing? I checked eBay and came up empty there as well.

I find these laying about here and there a local hardware stores. I've
never seen these at a big box store though, only at small ma and pa

maker on the net is Wolf garden tools.
This seems to be a company from the U.K. I'm sure if you looked around,
they sell in the states also. Un-sure if their handels will fit your heads
though. I suggest that you look at your tool heads again for manufacturing
clues. Scotts makes nothing and they farm out those duties, so you may get
luck and find a manufacturer name in small print somewhere on the tool.
Then you can google it and hunt it down that way.
Btw, try froggle (part of google) to hunt down stuff. I've found many hard
to find items with froogle.
You were right on. I heard back from Scotts. They suggested Lowes who are
now carrying a line by WulfGarten that is interchangeable with their
previous tools. (I did not see them at our local Lowes here in small town
America.). They also suggested Smith Farm & Garden (website of the same
name which I am now off to check.) Thanks to both you and Sgt. Bilko
(ten-hut!) for replying.

typed the following:
I have one. Mine is a Burpee. Aluminum handle with yellow rubbery
coating near the top half and a green end where the tools plug in. Also
a green square button in the aluminum shaft above the tool connector.
I checked the Burpee site and could not find *any* tools. They might
have sold off that division.
I called Scotts at 1-888-270-3714 and they are making refund for broke
handle. Referred me to Smith Farm and Garden, Phone 1-800-992-6552 fo
Snap Lock Tools. I also found "Interlocken Handles" at OMygarden.com.
They had better shipping costs

I found your post in my own search for more attachments for the Scotts handle--
I currently only have the 6" rake head, and my yellow 5' handle is in excellent
shape-- used, but the original stickers are still on it. Can you and I come to
some agreement? You either sell me your attachments or I sell you the handle/6"
