I put an O-Clamp on the back of my quad box and clamp it to the top part of the T-Bar.  It has a 15' cord on it just so it will reach the ground with a little slack if needed.  I just take the clamp off when done.  I'll go grab it out the van and take a pic once the rain stops here.

Thomann do a special t-bar
 with built in power/dmx connectors spaced along the bar with powercon in/out at then ends. mabey someone does one with us outlets (although if you can get similar sized US outlets it could be easily modified).

how is the DMX wired through these? opto isolated, or just split off with basically a Y connection?

Is there any simple way to clean up this unsightly mess?

I want to either build or attach a distribution box onto the top bar, but I don't want a 15 foot cable hanging from the bar when I transport. I have considered a box with a Powercon connector like the Chauvet PowerStream 4 Splitter, but I need a fifth outlet for the wireless receiver.

Any other options out there for 120V US?
We are getting ready to re-do our LED Par Bars.  We are running all of the DMX on the inside and we are adding a single Edison box to each with PowerCon in and out.  We are going to connect all of the electrical from each light to the power con.  1 DMX in, 1 DMX out and connect a Power Con each way.  Should look nice and neat.  I'll post a pic when we get one done.

According to the reviews y split essentially, so just like the power connections.
