A Chief RPA020 or the key locking faster quick mount RPMA020. He will need a pole of the right length. A 1 1/2 in diameter NT threaded piece of pipe available at Home Depot. Also a ceiling plate for attaching to the ceiling and to screw the pipe into to. A 1 1/2 inch diameter NT ceiling flange at Home Depot will work fine or you can get a pretty one from Chief if the pole length will allow visability of the flange. AVS sells the mount. Call me if you want to discuss what he needs and then you can order from AVS. They have great pricing.
