Fun speaker hang of the day
« on: May 07, 2014, 11:14:59 am »

A locally owned sub sandwich shop has four speakers hung like this. They've been there for at least six years, and haven't fallen yet, but I try not to sit in the booths under them.

Shame on the building/fire inspector.  After six years, the blame is on them too.

Call the city inspector's office and tell them...unless you're getting sweet deals on subs. ;>)

I'm an installer, not the installation police.
FWIW, the sandwich makers don't wear hats nor hairnets either.

Neither do I when I prepare my food.  I think it's possible to be too paranoid over some things.

Speaking of paranoia, there is a new company doing the street cleaning in our town and now the people sweeping the streets look very comical wearing hard hats.  As far as I know, there has not been a problem with people dropping grand pianos and anvils out of windows so I have no idea what the purpose is.

That part of Austin must have the best inspectors money can buy (off).  I used to live there; care to divulge the identity of this eatery?

I had to do the same working for various home builders. It's an insurance rate issue.

10lb speakers, 500lb chain, 200lb grid wire from frame to roof truss. I'm OK with that. I'll be in Round Rock next week. Can I go there for a sub?

Thundercloud Subs at I-35 and 290 East.
I haven't worked food service for some years; perhaps the laws on hair control have been loosened. I like the food and the people, and I've never found a hair in the food. Nor am I really worried about the speakers falling; I just think it looks hilarious from an installer's point of view.

Bob, email me at josephmacry@gmail.com; we can have a sub together while sitting under the Pioneer.

Perhaps you like this hang at NeWorlDeli better.
