This chain kit can be used to mount a new pole against an existing pole, or in newer cases, to mount secure a Starlink Mast to an existing mount or ground pole mount.
This kit contains 2 – 24″ long chains that wrap around both the existing pole or mount and the new pipe or mast to secure it without the need for drilling or cutting or replacing a mount or ground pole mount.
We’ve used this kit to install up to a 2 3/8″ OD Sched. 40 Steel Pole beside a 3″ Pipe used for old C-Band Antennas.
A longer chain may be required for larger applications, and a shorter chain could be used for smaller applications.
Wrap one chain near the top of the pipe or mount, around the new pipe or mast, and around the existing pipe or mount, and then slide the bolt with a flat washer through one end of the chain.
Pull the chain tight and then stick the bolt through the other end of the chain as tightly to the pole as you can get it.
Install the 2nd flat washer and then the lock nut and then tighten it until the chain pulls tight around both the existing pole or mount and the new pole or mount.
Repeat the process lower on the pipes or mounts so that it is held both on the top and bottom of the new pole mount, pipe, mast, etc.
Sometimes for longer poles, pipes, or masts, more than one chain kit is recommended to be placed every so often down the length of the pipes, masts, pole mounts, etc.
This chain kit is commonly used to install a 2″ OD pipe next to an existing 2 3/8″ OD Ground Pole Mount to get the correct diameter required by the new antenna or other devices.
This chain kit is also now used with staircase railings, deck railings, and even without our tri-mast wall/roof mounts to secure a Starlink Mast to the tri-mast mount for a temporary installation.
