So, if it doesn’t say Doughty on the outside, it’s not Doughty on the inside!

Suitable for truss with tube centres from 239mm to 433mm. It is designed to mount on the top or the bottom of box truss to provide a stand-off rigging point. Ideal for hanging video walls, but you can also move the bow nut to the centre and it can be used as a truss adaptor. Available in a powder coated black finish.
