This triangular support stand
features a heavy cast iron tripod base. Each of the 3 legs sticks out about 5" from center, giving it about an 9" wide base footprint. The chrome plated 1/2" diameter support rod measures 24" in length. The heavy base will make sure your expensive glassware doesn't fall over and break - no matter how many clamps and widgets you attach to it.
The thick chrome plating on the rod will not flake off or rust.
