I have the Gravity Stands lighting stands with the heavy base plate and pole but at the time I waited to get the T-bars to keep cost down and knowing I wasn't going to need the complete set until later. I bought them from Projectorgram. They don't seem to carry the T-bars anymore (and why Gravity doesn't just sell it as a unit is beyond me). So I recently went on to KPODJ. I've never ordered from KPODJ before. I know a lot of you have. Their site said they were In Stock and ships from their warehouse in 2 days. Turns out that was completely false. They never let me know that they're out of these until I inquired about not receiving any shipping confirmation here a week later. These things are nearly impossible to find. Does anyone know who carries them OR a sufficient alternative that will fit Gravity's vertical pole? They supposedly fit over a 35mm (I'm guessing that's a speaker stand size?). Wasn't sure if anyone has used any t-bar from any other company with Gravity's main pole and base (I think Ultimate Support makes one, not sure). I really can't afford to buy something only to find out it doesn't work once I get it. I have a wedding coming up at the end of the month. Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

I use one from my Ultimate light stand .. I had to wrap GAFF around the top of the Gravity pole (maybe 4 times around) to make up the diameter difference. It's what the Chauvet Wash FX2 are on ..

BTW, I found these while surfing .. a silicone or rubber sleeve that fits speaker diameter poles to make them lighting stand diameter ...

Did u guys find a place to buy just the bar itself...ive done a permanent mount on my bars with my washfx's and another set of lights for two seperate wash options... but i have a glow party in a few months and would like to have empty cross bars to attach my blacklight bars to....(without having to dismantle my perm installs)

This would be to fit a standard light stand

Wash fx 2 perfect for Glow Parties! I used standard T bars just like you would for regular Tripod lighting stands. Be mindful of total weight of lights. Also mount movers close to center and make sure they are small 20190419_204855_1.gif

Could always buy the new ones and sell off the older ones .. maybe net cost of $250.

I would just add too current inventory. I use the FX4 Par bags Fits 2 wash fx2s perfectly. That goes in a Home depot Husky rolling case from Home Depot. I now have 8 Wash FX 2s

I hate buying gear that can only be used for one type of gig. I.e.. Glow Lights that do nothing else but glow. You may break them out at most 2 times a year. But you having to pay the price for buying them. They are a one trick pony. That's why I went with the FX2s
