  • 1.5" O clamps that aren't plastic? (resolved, with photos)

     I have some third-hand truss with 1.5" tube.  I need to buy 6 O-clamps to mount some light bars to it.  Unfortunately the only ones I can find anywhere are the plastic ADJ ones.  I don't use plastic on stage for anything, let alone lights that will fall on my drums or myself if they fall. 

    I'm considering trying the Global Truss 1 1/3" clamps, but i don't want to have to crush my truss to get the tension i need.  Are there 1 1/2" metal clamps out there?  It seems like centerstage lighting had a wide variety of clamps, but who knows what happened to them...

    Do they have to be O-Clamps?

      Yeah, due to the kind of unique way I'm setting up my lights, and some very tight spacing issues, O-clamps are required.  I tried 8 C clamps, but they way they are offset makes it impossible to rotate the lights side to side, which is kind of important.
