Doughty Tank Trap - Boom Base for 2'' Tube

The Doughty Tank Trap is regarded as the best boom base to create side light or cross light across the stage. They solve many of the challenges involved with transporting and storing boom and lighting pipe stands.

The Doughty knob grips a 2'' diameter vertical tube/scaffold pole securely in order to fly luminaires etc. The Tank Trap's heavy square steel metal base and long receiver provide extra stability to lighting fixtures.

With fixing holes on the plate, this strong boom base can be screwed to the stage floor. The base can also be weighted with sandbags to hold it in place, especially when using long poles.

There is a cut out in the base to allow compact stacking for transport and storage.
