If you get mounting brackets for apex up triangle truss, square truss will also fit in the same brackets.

The downside of apex up (pun intended) is that your lights are not going to be centered on the load of the truss.  Depending on the stands you use, this may or may not be an issue.  Note that square truss has the same problem no matter what.  Hang a few lights on the front bar and a few on the back, and problem solved.


With adjustable brackets I also have the option of moving the CofG more towards the centerline of the stands by moving the loaded chord towards the center. (The shift is about 5", which is pretty good for 12" truss.)  I don't know if anyone else has tried this; YMMV.  Be careful with overhead loads....

I use a similar version of Aluminum triangle truss (I'm
In Canada) two 8' sections with ST-132 stands fits 11 Blizzard 3NX's nicely. I use 11 because then I can work off a center light when using alternating colors.







Don't forget the safety cables.

Ah ok. I tried to find the equivalent. They are actually Players Choice DLC001

I'm Canadian, different market. Probably from the same factory in China.

Ahhhhhh ok. The ST132 is the similar one. I was confused, these go to 13 feet as well.

The point was more the truss. It can be held up by whatever you choose.


Works great.
