    Default HDPE Arch Kits...

    UPDATE: You can now get information, view photos, and a demonstration video as well as purchase this product on our website at http://www.livinglightshows.com/. Thanks!





    For those of you who are interested in using my arch design but do not want to go through all the work or cannot find all the parts I have some of these kits available now (thank you for your patience for those who have been asking for them) that I developed for commercial clients. They are $79 and you can email me at mjohnson@livinglightshows.com or matt@johnsonlightshow.com. These are much more professional looking than the DIY option in my How-To videos and have many feature and an improved design. Some of these improvements include:

    - Tensioner with cord stop so you can tighten and loosen the pixel strip within the tube after putting the base on (previous method put a lot of tension on the pixel strips when removing the rebar cap unless you left it so loose that when the base was in the arch it didn’t provide enough tension)

    - Legs with anchor holes perpendicular to arch

    - Waterproof ingress/egress for power/data cables

    - Durable and semi-flexible Polyethylene hybrid composition

    - Improved tube clamp design

    NOTES ON THE KIT:
    These kits include one of two kinds of Pixel Strip anchors; one design is for silicon sleeved strips and the other is for open strips for whichever method you prefer (specify when ordering which kind you would like in your kit).

    Included:
    - 2 x Arch Base Mounts
    - 2 x Tension Cords with hooks
    - 2 x Cord Locks
    - 2 x 13.5mm 3-Pin Plugs (1 male, 1 female) (+, -, data)
    - 1 x Plug Retaining Ring
    - 1 x Plug Gasket
    - 1 x Plug Cap (if not daisy chaining the arches)
    - 1 x Set of Pixel Strip Anchors (Specify at ordering silicon sleeved anchors or open strip anchors)
    - 2 x JST Connectors (1 male, 1 female)
    - 2 x Tube to Base Clamps
    - 2 x Screw Knobs for tool-less adjustment and attachment of stabilizing bar
    - 4 x Zip ties (only if you have chosen the silicon sleeved pixel strip anchors)

    NOT Included:
    - Pixel Strips
    - 1/2” EMT Stabilizer Bar
    - HDPE Tubing

    Arch base mounts come un-assembled as shown below, if you would like the cord glued into the base and the wires soldered it is an additional $10.

    Colors may vary from what is shown in the photo (I can also take requests on color)

    Here is a video of the arches in action: https://youtu.be/90oZ52M4IC0

    I will have these available on my website in the near future but for now I will just accept orders via PayPal.

    Thanks!

    These look like great kits Matt. Couple questions...
    What are the dimensions of the base plate?
    Assuming these are for your 2" HDPE, can kits be built for smaller HDPE?

    Nice looking kit, will you be selling pieces separately (such as the pixel strip anchors) or is it going to be kit form only?

    Nice looking MAtt. Are the bases 3d printed? I like this kit a lot. You should post this on facebook too.

    The dimensions of the base plate are 7" x 4" and yes I can offer them for other size tubing as well. I would just need time to order the tubing of your choice (or you can mail me a 6" piece) so I can measure it and test with it.

    Great to hear, I did the best I could based on your original video but would love to retrofit the strip anchor/stress relief pieces for piece of mind. Thank you for making pieces available a la carte.

    Thanks,

    Brian
