Constructed with 6061-T6 high strength cast aluminum. Cross section is robust in order to withstand severe bending stresses. It is recommended in the case of a slide fit to use anaerobic resin cement as well as bolting. Bottom opening slide fits over 2 O.D. pipe or into 3 I.D. pipe.
This fitting allows the mounting of the double obstruction marker well above the windsock for good visibility and also prevents the windsock from becoming entangled.
Most items below can be added to our assemblies, however we recommend further inquiry to verify compatibility and delivery.
