Neat little trick that one, certainly seems to work well enough too and let’s face it, it’s on a you toob video so it must work..RIGHT?? 😉.... although I do like Steve’s very manly💪 Scaffold tube idea😉
Thanks for posting/sharing that one Matt 👍

Slightly less "manly" (whatever that means) although kinder on the seals might be PVC drain tubing.....

I use the Ian method of PVC waste pipe that is slotted lengthwise to allow for expansion if required around the stanchion and a nylon headed hammer or rubber mallet to do the driving, if necessary. Make sure that the seals are well lubed before easing into place.
