This is not a very common item these days but if you’re looking at this, then you already know what this is!
This tent ridge pole hanger is forged from 3/16″ x 3/4″ mild steel. It’s designed to fit over a 2″ x 4″ ridge pole or equivalent round pole (1.5″ diameter). Even though it has a rounded top it will just as easily fit over square lumber. It’s a snug fit to sit perfectly.
The hanger has plenty of strength (forged from solid steel) to hold pretty much anything you need to hang, be it a lantern, backpack, or other camping supplies.
The height of the hanger is 12″ and features the usual two hooks.
You have two options on the finish with this: matte black paint or forged finish.
The matte black paint is ideal if you will be using the hanger outside to prevent rust and corrosion.
The forged finish is your classic blackened look achieved with a paste wax which is perfect for interior. The paste wax will help prevent rust and corrosion but it’s not intended for outdoor use.
