Regarded as the best metal pole base plate to create sidelight or cross light across the stage, this standard Doughty tank trap comes with three options - fixed base, 2 wheels, and 4 castors.
Fitted with a Long Receiver to Secure a Pole
The Doughty Tank Trap consists of a sturdy steel plate and a 50mm receiver with 2 knobs. It provides the means to support a 48mm diameter tube/scaffold pole, also known as a lighting boom, to fly luminaires etc. The heavy square metal plate with a suitably long receiver can keep the boom upright and stable by tightening 2 knobs. The feature of this long receiver is hardly found on the market. Attached with horizontal boom arms, lanterns can be mounted with clamps to create sidelight or cross light across the stage. See thumbnail.
With the fixing holes on the plate, this lighting boom base can be mounted to the floor. More commonly, the base is weighted with sandbags to hold it in place. Also, there is a cut out in the base to allow compact stacking for transport and storage. Read more about Doughty Tank Trap on our MTN Shop Blog.
