The lock towers I use are a custom design built by my company. I use 1 1/2" sch. 80 pipe and machine the plastic bushing to fit the pipe snuggly. Then I drill the center to 5/8" on the lathe. The 2 1/2" long plastic bushing is then inserted and setscrewed in place in the pipe. I run a 5/8" hand reamer through to smooth the setscrew bumps and insert the brass, which has been prethreaded and use a nylock nut to finish it.
they aint my frames, they belong to my boss, and he doesn't give a shit! just kidding. I used some of the spray on sunscreen the other day and it seemed to work well and not be sticky, although I usually just throw some water on em. We use steel towers too, so not a lot of wear there.
GC G-you should produce and sell some o them towers. Do you work for PRO?
