Title: Truss/stand pins
Post by: John Roll on June 16, 2011, 03:25:16 pm
Soundguy here.....I've acquired several Ultimate stands and some truss which are lacking the safety pins. I've looked on the Ultimate Support, American DJ, Chauvet, and Onstage Stands sites for these pins, but have had no luck. Does anyone know where these can be purchased?

Thanks,
John

Often the manufacturer's don't list parts on their websites or in their catalogues/price sheets.  Contact the respective manufacturer's for the info.

I went to Tractor supply's website and entered "pin" into the search box and was rewarded with over 470 hits. Surely one of these will work for you.

we are moving away from the mfr. truss pins, they fall out and get lost easy...only issue is diameters being close to what you need. don't want a whole lot of slop in the mating.

You should be able to get them at a big hardware store.

If you don't have a pin to take to the store, find a bolt that fits the hole so you have the diameter, and then measure the length you need.
