Safer Sidearms™

Load-rated City Theatrical Safer Sidearms safely support heavier modern lighting fixtures.

Safer Sidearms (City Theatrical P/Ns 200, 202, 204, 210, 210M, 211, 220, and 290) use a diagonal brace to transfer the load off the clamp and onto the vertical pipe, making them stronger and safer to use. Steel Safer Sidearms are bigger and more rugged, designed for speakers and moving lights.

All City Theatrical Safer Sidearms are CE certified and RoHS compliant.
