This is getting really frustrating for me... I have racked my brain trying to figure out how to hang my Pucks (12 of them) from a backline truss without losing 2' of headroom. The rooms we play don't have tons of headroom to start with and hanging lights off of a truss, you lose so much height.
I tried mounting the lights upside down, on their own bar which is clamped to the truss with the truss flat side down. Gravity always wins and even with 4 clamps per 6' bar, i can't get the lights to not swing down. I think the best and safest solution is to mount the truss with the point down and hang the lights off of one of the top bars. Of all the configurations I've tried (in my living room... my girlfriend is going to kill me...) this seems to be the only one I would feel safe sitting under.
Where do I get stand mounts that will allow me to mount my truss upside down? I don't know who made my crank stands since i got them used, but i do know that global truss t-bars fit on them, so they must be some sort of standard size. Any tips? I need something that works by the 9th because I sold my old light rig already... (whoops?)
This is the closest I've come to finding what I need, but this website is really short on info. The only measurement they provide is that it's 8 pounds... http://www.gearsource.com/catalog/listing/63015
