Am looking for one of the above, as used by plumbers for carrying lengths of copper tube. Itís for carrying my telescopic height measuring pole that I have with me in the truck for measuring high loads, and will be mounted somewhere out of the way on the truck chassis. At the moment the pole lives on the top bunk but itís an utter pita climbing into the cab in my overalls and lowering the bunk to get to it, hence the idea to mount it outside. (The bottom bunk is the ideal place for it, but Iím not risking damaging my salmon pink candlewick bedspread and fleece-lined paisley pattern winceyette Jim-jams )
Iíve had a trawl through the likes of Van Vault and Rhino, but tbh Iím not enamoured with the idea of spending in the region of £100 for a new one. Iíve pondered the idea of making one from a length of 100x100 aluminium box section with fabricated locking end caps, but that will probably work out dearer than a new one, and I donít do fleabay either. Soooo, can anyone suggest where one might be procured from, or even made cheap-ishly?
