Guided Purchasing

How should I attach my KBW brackets to my light poles?

The three basic methods are via 5/8" Screw Gear Banding, Tool-applied Band-It® brand banding / buckles and by bolting to the poles.

For advice on which method to choose either consult the "Hardware Banding Guidelines Chart" or use our Guided Purchasing option on the online store or consult with a Consort Sales Representative through email, "Live Chat" or telephone 1-800-525-6424.

The easiest option is the 5/8" Screw Gear Banding, which is simply a long, heavy duty version of a 'radiator clamp'. We recommend that you buy these from us as they are custom made by Ideal to our specifications and similar bands that you may access from a local hardware store will not be the same width or strength. We do not recommend 1/2" wide or 9/16" wide bands nor do we recommend "Quick Clamp" screw gear bands. We sell and recommend versions where the screw is "captured".

If our "Hardware Banding Guidelines Chart" does not recommend screw gear bands for your banner installation due to banner size and or number of banners per pole (one or two), use the 3/4" wide tool-applied banding. This is the strongest and most reliable option. It's easy to learn and easy to do. The instructions are clear and we have online Banding Video Instruction available.
