Spikes and sockets for speaker stands?

Has anyone ever done something like this? I'm probably going to make some heavy duty stands for some 1099s and I was wondering if anyone has seen a way to connect them with spikes and sockets like I've drawn below. I've seen the spikes at Parts Express and I assume I could drill holes in the stands that are just slightly smaller than the spike diameter.

Looks like most spike sets come with cups.

Couldn't you just install the cups on the top of your stand?

I suppose I could. I have two idiot sons who I know are going to run into these things and I was hoping for a little more stability than that looks like.

I thought you were looking for a way to isolate the speaker from the stand. If you are needing them locked to the stand the best way would be to build the stand into the speaker otherwise if you're not wanting something permanent, you could drill holes and use dowels.

Yeah I want the option of removing them from the stands. That's why I wouldn't just build the 1099s as towers.

But you are still building them as towers.

Didn't you ask about wall mounting them? If wall mount isn't an option and you want them higher up, I would build separate bases like you have shown, but screw them from underneath to the 1099. Or is the "base" solid, without an open panel?
