For connecting weave pole base units and adding weight. Safely hidden beneath the running surface, each connector is 3/8" thick and 1-1/2" wide. The countersunk screws have a flat head, so the running surface is perfectly flat.
We offer three lengths of connector-weights so that you can choose within a range of 6.25 pounds to 15 pounds added to the weight of the base and poles. Some users prefer lighter sets for easier portability, and some prefer heavier sets for greater stability.
Weighting the bases is a safety consideration if you have strong/large dogs who can move a set of weaves that isn't staked down. Long (16") or Extra Long (20") connector-weights are recommended for trials. Most clubs prefer 16" connector-weights for regulation use.
Short connectors are 8" long. Each one weighs about 1.25 pounds, so a set of 5 (to connect six 2-pole units) weighs 6.25 pounds. Powdercoated steel, Bengal Blue, smooth finish.
Long connectors are 16" long. Each one weighs about 2.5 pounds, so a set of 5 (to connect six 2-pole units) weighs 12.5 pounds. Powdercoated steel, Light Gray, satin finish.
Extra Long connectors are 20" long. Each one weighs about 3.0 pounds, so a set of 5 (to connect six 2-pole units) weighs 15 pounds. Powdercoated steel, Light Gray, satin finish.
