Our new swaged pole and gas pipe Tripod Topper makes for a portable suspension point anywhere you need a hard point.
We designed our toppers to set up in less than a minute.
We supply the topper, thumb screws, three rubber feet for the bottom of the legs (crutch caps). You can purchase this pipe at any lumber store or plumbing supply house separately to make any size legs you want. The pipe at the big lumber yards runs around 19.00 per pipe and comes in 10 foot sections you will need 1" I.D. pipe. They will cut it to size for free. This option great reduces the shipping of the topper.
With our new model as of Feb. 1 2014 all models are now able to take both gas pipe and our swaged poles. What this means for you is that you can now buy this topper and use gas pipe from your local supplier to get an easy to assemble reduced cast suspension point. At any time you get our swaged poles (31.5") long to upgrade and make the unit much more portable and be able to have multiple heights without having to cut gas pipe. This topper will accept both style pipes so you will not have to purchase a whole another topper unit if you want to upgrade.
When you buy our swaged pipes they come with spring retention clips that automatically lock the pipe into the topper. You will not need to use the thumb screws to hold the pipe into position.
