'mega pole' help

Recommended Posts

Stocking up on supplies and have decided to also do a 4th of July show next year. I saw a few set ups using poles like the ones here http://www.lightsofthenight.com/4th-of-july.html

Are there any instructions around for building and sequencing them? I'm probably using the wrong description but I have done searches for 'pole', 'mega pole', etc...

Thanks

Try doing a search for firesticks. I think that is what they are commonly called here. Rich

Firesticks? never heard that term.

It can be done the same way as an arch, just verticle instead of bowed.

I used four in my Christmas display

EDIT: Or you could buy the Light Towers from here;

That's what I was looking for. The instructional build vid was right on. Looks like I can buy everything I need at a big box supply store. Based on what you're saying I need to check out sequencing for arches to get these light towers to operate like my example vid above, right?

You also might want to think about sleeving the main pole with other pipes to make it easy to swap/fix segments that go bad.
Yes big box hardware stores carry the supplies.

The Christmas Lightshow site JBullard sent me uses this method.

I must admit I almost replied to your comment with "huh!? What do you mean by sleeve?" until I thought a little more about what I saw in the instructional vid.

So is arch sequencing where I should look to get the info I need to make the lights go 'up-and-down' the pole?
