It's getting to be that time of year when we see all sorts of amazing light displays and prop frames! Jim sent in some photos of a few things he made. Check out his YouTube video of the build timelapse from last years show!
Teressa sent in some great photos of their marching band castle prop! Super Cool!
"Hi, I’m with the visual design team for our daughters’ marching band here in Asheville, NC. Last year we were tasked with building a 30’ wide castle to enhance the marching band show and allow for the grand entrance of a bagpipe player that really wowed the crowd! We planned on using EMT conduit for the structure but couldn’t find a way to connect the conduit the way we hoped until we found your company. What a game changer!!
The marching band participated in local competitions throughout the season and we had band directors from other bands coming over to see how our props were built. We couldn’t say enough about how instrumental your connectors were in making our castle! I’m attaching pictures of last year’s props so you can see what we built.
One of our biggest challenges was figuring out how to put wheels on the frames that would be heavy-duty enough to push the frames on and off the football field quickly. We ended up using your puzzle-piece clamp to attach plywood to the base of the frames and then connected the wheels to the plywood and it worked out perfectly!
This year, we will be designing more amazing props (and I’ll be placing another order for more connectors)"
"This is probably the most basic build of them all but I'm very proud of being able to accomplish this on my own, without power tools, and at a reasonable price. I needed something affordable as this succulent bed gets hit with all the afternoon sun. I will be adding a shade cloth over this shortly. I used ¾" conduit and four 90-degree connectors and four T-connectors, so far. I will be ordering some end caps and the clips for the shade cloth. I also used four 2-foot rebar which I pounded into the ground with about one foot underground. It's pretty sturdy." - Jurana
"I built a rack to hold solar panels while RV camping to charge solar generator. I used t connectors cross-over clamps and 1-hole straps. Worked great a quality product and a great company to work with."
"I'm having a lot of fun using your clamps, they fit perfectly with 3/4 inch conduit. Able to build a sturdy frame for my portable solar panel which is heavy and hard to setup on its own. The panel has 8 eyelet holes that I mounted on the maker frame making sure they line up with the 6mm clamp bolt. Used longer 6mm screws to hold panel with washer and wingnut. It was very easy to line up and center the mounting points as the clamps are adjustable! Really enjoy your products." - Jim
