are not as strong as slip-fitters but are
usually standard with the fixture or
relatively less expensive than slip-fitters
that require additional mounting hard-ware
Slip-fitters or “pipe mounts” fit on
top of a 2 3/8-inch pipe and are secured
with compression locking screws. This
allows 360 degrees of lateral rotation in
addition to 90 degrees of vertical pivot.
Slip-fitters are more commonly used for
flood lighting applications because of
the greater pointing range.
Bullhorns come in many configura-tions.
They can be made in-house by
bending and configuring 2 3/8-inch
pipe, or purchased from a supplier.
Keep in mind that bullhorn mounts
can be attached to most chairlift
towers, eliminating independent light
poles for some areas.
