Poor Mans Pixel Pole Mounts – EMT


3D Printed mounting system for the Gilbert Engineering Poor Mans Pixel Pole utilizing 1/2″ EMT conduit for the mounting material. EMT is suitable when using the pixels poles as a freestanding prop. For installations where mounting against a structure will be utilized or for use on vinyl siding with our special Poor Mans Pixel Pole Vinyl Siding Corner Clips, a PVC version is available. These mounts provide a frame structure behind the coro to increase strength and allow mounting to various surfaces. Note, the 99 node, 3 pixels across version changed mid year in 2022. The older versions were approximately 3.25″ wide and the new versions are approximately 4″ wide. Please check which version you have prior to ordering.

IMPORTANT: These mounts are sold a la carte and 3 mounts are required per section in order to adequately support the pixel poles. (The 600 node, 6 across version requires 5 mounts) One for each end and one in the middle. A special coupler version can be used to bridge two sections together and for the bottom there is a special base mount which has holes for landscape stakes which prevent the poles from turning. For example a one section pixel pole would require 1 base mount and 2 standard mounts. A two section tall pixel pole would require 1 base mount, 3 standard mounts and 1 coupler. If you have any questions please contact us prior to ordering. Colors may vary, typically they are white or black. If you have a specific color request for white or black please include a note indicating your preference with your order, but keep in mind that it may increase processing time for in-stock items. Includes 3D printed parts only.

For freestanding installation use 1/2″ rebar and drive the rebar into the ground. Then slide the pixels poles over top of the rebar and use landscape stakes in the holes on the base mount to prevent turning. Wind and height can make a secure installation challenging. Try and utilize 3 feet or longer rebar and go at least 1.5 feet into the ground depending on soil. The deeper the rebar goes into the ground and the taller it sticks out and fits inside of the EMT, the stronger your pixel pole will stand. Anything more than one section for the 99 and 200 node poles will almost certainly need some form of guy wires to stand up to wind events. Even at only one section tall, a strong wind can take its toll and knock down the poles. So if you are in a wind prone area it may make sense to utilize guy wires regardless of height. The 600 node version will always require guy wires to stabilize as it’s massive!

3D printing parts is a slow process and we have a whole print farm running 24/7 to fulfill orders and build stock of the more popular items. If you order a product that shows “made to order” we will move it directly to the print queue where it will be printed as soon as possible. While normal processing times for most orders with made to order items is less than a week, it can fluctuate. Very large orders can also experience longer than normal processing times as well because of the high number of hours it takes to produce lots of parts. If processing times are expected to be longer than two weeks before shipping, there will be a banner at the top of the website indicating the expected wait times. See the FAQ page for more info.

All of our 3D printed parts use PETG filament which provides good flexibility and resistance to UV exposure when used seasonally.
