The pneumatic masts with locking systems can be kept extended for long periods without internal air pressure. Two different solutions are available: • The Steady series is equipped with metal bands which embrace the single mast sections. These bands can be tightened so to keep the sections locked by friction. • The Super Steady series is equipped with mechanical locking devices. Each section • is provided with lever handles which will insert • two bullet latches in two slots on the tube. • In comparison with the Steady version, this model offer an even greater resistance: It allows a longer extension time as well as the mounting of heavier payloads.
